Michael Zarvos
Founder / Head of Recruitment
Michael is a 17+ year recruiter who has built his career around relationship building and trust. He cut his teeth at a couple of the larger agencies, developing his own style that's all about quality over quantity. Michael naturally fell into recruiting after receiving a Bachelor's degree in Marketing from Cal State Fullerton, as the work combined his educational background with his love for helping people. When he's not hustling for his clients and candidates, you can find him all over Southern California coaching his son's soccer team, hitting the slopes with his daughter, or attempting to serenade his wife with a guitar and some off-key vocals.
