Seasoned recruiter, Carol Ross, joins Phoenix Staff to attract Valley’s most talented candidates.

Past News Releases


Phoenix Staff, Inc., a recognized leader in professional placement, today announced that the company is significantly expanding their hiring capabilities in three vertical roles, including Accounting and Finance, Sales and Marketing, and Administrative and Clerical. The decision to broaden recruitment in these disciplines is in response to the strong growth in the IT industry, which respectively has increased the demand for supportive and structural roles. The strategy for this augmentation has been in the works for nearly one year, and is the first of three major shifts in strategy that Phoenix Staff will be announcing as part of their overall business plan throughout the coming year.

In order to immediately implement the company’s bolstered services, Phoenix Staff recently hired veteran recruiting expert, Carol Ross, as the company’s Director of Strategy. In this role, Ross will initially be tasked with building an internal recruiting team that can meet the current demand from customers and then will grow the individual lines of business based on future growth expectations. Ross has been a professional recruiter for the past eight years in Arizona where she has built a stellar reputation for her staffing expertise and long-term relationships.

“With the growth we’ve experienced in the IT industry, we have projected that this surge would naturally spawn growth in other positions as well,” said Allen Plunkett, president of Phoenix Staff. “We have been working on a plan of action for some time in order to continue placing the best candidates for our customers in ALL areas of their business. Most recruiting agencies will claim that they can place candidates in all positions, but we at Phoenix Staff have taken the necessary, proactive steps to attract and place the best talent in the Valley.”

Plunkett continued, “Without a doubt, one of our most substantial propositions for this expansion was bringing Carol Ross on board. Carol is tenacious, strategic, and she has been in the Valley for years where she has built an impeccable reputation in the recruiting industry.”

Ross most recently worked as Sales Manager for Thomson Netg, formerly KnowledgeNet, where her responsibilities included recruiting the inside sales team. Her team at KnowledgeNet delivered exponential growth throughout the six years she was with the company. Prior to KnowledgeNet, Ross was Division Director for OfficeTeam, a division of Robert Half International. She was charged with the responsibility to grow the downtown Phoenix market with contract administrative professionals.

“Phoenix Staff has a great reputation and solid relationships with key players in the Valley,” said Carol Ross. “The company is small enough that it allows us the ability to leverage our relationships while giving our customers the attention they deserve. This is a key component when trying to match our customers’ needs with the best candidates. Allen and I have worked together previously. I know he’s a trusted, well-respected partner, and I look forward to adding to the success of his company.”
