Our Story

After 24 years of national recruiting experience I launched Fuel Talent as a woman-owned recruiting firm in 2013 and am proud of what our team has built.

 

Our success is multi-faceted; we do not attribute our growth and success to just one factor.

The birth of Fuel Talent came from the realization that there was a market need for a boutique recruiting firm; a high-touch, one-stop shop that could service multiple recruiting needs within one firm.

I saw a gap in the market and believed strongly that to deliver maximum value, I needed to build a team that would lead with service and relationships as the foundation. Our team knows technology is a powerful efficiency tool, but it doesn’t replace the bedrock of our business.

We prioritize our relationships – they are deep and personal and go beyond a surface-level connection. We are obsessed with client service and creating real, meaningful and long term partnerships.

When I started the company, the first thing we did was identify our core values - what we are about and who we want to target to work with us at Fuel Talent.

 

We live by our values. They aren’t just words on a page (or in our case on our wall and on our desks), but real, actionable principles we embody every single day.

  • Drive: “We are hungry bad asses.”
  • Integrity: “We always do the right thing.”
  • Efficiency: “We are on-it and we get sh*t done.”
  • Respect: “We treat others how we want to be treated.”
  • Accountability: “We take ownership and make no excuses.”
  • Excellence: “We exceed expectations in everything we do.”
 

Our employees are engaged in doing good in our community and genuinely want to give back. Since 2013, I am humbled by several awards our team has received.

While it is inspiring to be honored as one of the Fastest-Growing Companies in Washington, I am most proud of our recognition in the community as one the top Corporate Philanthropists and Best Workplaces in Washington.
