Get To Know Us

Who is 180one?

As former leaders of a national recruiting firm and customers of recruiting services (that’s right, we’ve used recruiting firms, too), we know where traditional recruiting firms succeed and where they fail.

So in 2007 we set out to create a firm that provides value for our clients where they need it most – for hiring critical, senior-level management positions.

We built a team of experienced, hard-working professionals who truly enjoy getting to know our clients, their business and the candidates who are going to make an impact.
