Prior to starting SimonSolutions in 2002, Cheryl was employed by a staffing firm where she had initially focused her efforts on temporary staffing. After having immediate success, she was quickly promoted into a management role in the organization's permanent staffing division. While overseeing a staff of recruiters in all industries, Cheryl also ran her own book of business. In 2002, Cheryl took a leap of faith and made the decision to open her own firm. By doing this, she could provide her clients with staffing solutions that revolved around three things, relationships, flexibility and excellent service.
