Welcoming Gary Lortscher to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Gary Lortscher

When most people think of what if means to be cool, guys like Paul Newman, Sean Connery and Steve McQueen come to mind. When I think of what it means to be cool, the first name that pops into my head is Gary Lortscher. Who is Gary Lortscher, you ask? He’s our newest Technical Recruiter in Brookfield, Wisconsin, and he’s also one of the coolest cats you will ever meet.

Gary joined the STS Technical Services’ crew on Monday, May 10th. He comes to us with a wealth of Recruiting experience, an infectious attitude and some serious panache.

If you would like to get to know Gary just a little bit better, check out the quick Q&A we did with him. When you are done, you’ll come to find that Gary is not only the man, professionally speaking, he’s also the type of man men want to emulate and women want to be around. Seriously… Gary is the cooler than a bowl of ice cream, and we are so excited to have him on our team!

Question 1: Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

My name is Gary Lortscher, and I have about 15 years of direct hire and staff augmentation recruiting/ placement experience.  I also have a Bachelors of Science Degree from UW Oshkosh where I majored in Political Science. Prior to working in the staffing business, I was a licensed securities Broker/Trader with Strong Investments where I last worked as a Trading Manager.  In my 6 years in the securities business, I did not have a single execution trading error. I’m pretty proud of that.

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I am a big time outdoor enthusiast!  I am an avid hunter and frequent fisherman.  I own a 18 foot Aluminum sport fishing boat fully loaded with Lake Michigan equipment.  I love the art of chasing salmon and trout with locators and electronics.  Some in my family feel that I’m crazy because I am allergic to fish, but I do it for the thrill and adventure of the chase!  Kind of like when I was a young man in college, well… that’s a different story.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

If I could be any superhero, I would be Superman!

I remember the series where he traveled around the rotation of the Earth and was able to go back in time.  Now that would just about open the doors to unlimited imagination to what a person can do!  Couple that with being indestructible, faster than a speeding bullet and able to fly in and out to different Galaxies… yeah, I’d be Superman, for sure.  The imagination is a wonderful thing, I think Einstein said.

Welcoming Stephanie Brown to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Stephanie Brown

Some people are “talkers.” Others are “doers.” At STS Technical Services, we like doers who can talk. Why? Because what’s recruiting, really, if not relationship building? And how can you build a relationship without being able to proactively talk / communicate effectively?

Every great Recruiter builds relationships with job seekers; working with them for extended periods of time to help them navigate an ever-changing workforce. Cultivating relationships, however, takes more than communication. It takes time, patience, persistence and trust. So… yeah. When we’re looking for a Recruiter to join our team (we are hiring right now, BTW), we look for experience, personality and drive. The whole package, really. And when we first met Stephanie Brown, we knew that we had found exactly who we were looking for.

For our employees working remotely, meet Stephanie. Stephanie is our newest Technical Recruiter based out of Melbourne, Florida. She, too, is working remotely right now, so we wanted to share this post with you so that you can get to know your new teammate just a little bit better.

Stephanie, welcome to the crew. We are all thrilled to have you!

Question 1: Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have five (5) years of recruiting  experience. Two of those years were spent in manufacturing, and the rest of that time was spent training job seekers on resume writing and proper interview techniques.

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I like to hang out with my family and watch home improvement shows.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

“Stephanie Brown” from Batman (see below), but mostly because I wouldn’t have to change my name, which is a real pain.

Cindy Najera

Being a single mother is hard work. Being a single mother of five while holding down a career… that’s next-level difficult. But somehow, someway, our newest teammate, Cindy Najera, makes it all look easy when we know that it’s anything but. To that end, Cindy is not only a supermom, she’s a super Recruiter with more than 10 years of experience, and we are so very excited to welcome her to the STS Technical Services’ family!

I have been in recruiting since 2010.  I have worked on a variety of positions, such as clerical, light industrial, skilled trades and engineering roles.

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I have 5 kids, so my fun time is spent watching movies with them and singing loudly and dancing in the kitchen.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Oh! I am already a Super Mom! One of my many super powers is being a single mom that is always making sure my tiny humans eat, sleep and do their homework when they’re supposed to… all while working full time!

Welcoming Kermit Kapp to the STS Technical Services’ Family

Kermit Kapp

It’s not every day that you get to hire a literal rockstar, but that’s kind of who Kermit is. Humble as anyone we’ve ever met, he would tell you that he’s just a guy who just enjoys playing music, but it’s more than that. His talent on several instruments is the envy of many, and we are super excited to welcome him to the STS Technical Services’ family!

Kermit joined our recruiting team in Brookfield, Wisconsin a few weeks back. Shortly after, our marketing department sent him a “Welcome to the Team” form for him to complete. That form consists of three questions; questions designed to help you get to know the newest members of our crew a little better. His answers to those questions are listed below, so if you are interested in learning more about our super talented friend, take a few minutes and get to know who Kermit is, what he likes to do outside of work and more!

Thanks in advance for taking the time, and Kermit… welcome to the team!

Question 1: Tell us a little about your professional background, education and / or experience?

I have a BFA degree in Music Therapy. I play piano and flute. I also play guitar well enough to fool people who don’t play guitar.  Like many Recruiters, I unintentionally found my way into the business. I have 22 years of Recruiting experience; primarily for engineering positions.

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

I enjoy playing the piano, and I really like just being with friends and talking about life.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

I’ve never really thought about that before. I suppose Superman because he’s got the most complete set of superpowers.

My husband’s family is from Oscoda, Michigan, and they have owned and operated a restaurant / bakery there for 45 years.  Knowing that, my family and I are always up north on the water helping out our relatives.

I would be Aqua Girl.  I love the water, and I love marine life. I tend to rescue dogs, too, so I would probably help save marine life from destruction.

Welcoming Amber Mallak Back to the STS Technical Services Team

Amber Mallak

When Amber left our organization early in 2020 due to COVID-19 cutbacks, there was a void in our recruiting department. We had not only lost one of our best workers, we lost a friend… someone we could count on to come in every morning with a smile, a winning attitude and a helpful disposition.

Today, it gives us great pleasure to announce that Amber Mallak has returned to the STS Technical Services team! Moving forward, she will be one of our top Recruiters at our Oscoda, Michigan office; a center that helps our amazing client, Kalitta Air, thrive in an ever changing industry.

And while Amber’s primary recruiting focus will be to service Kalitta Air, we will lean on her expertise and knowledge to work with clients across the country. Amber has years of Recruiting experience, and her understanding of what it takes for Mechanics and Engineers to thrive in the aircraft maintenance industry is unmatched.

OK, now that we have a bit of background, let’s dive into the heart of this “Meet the Team” blog post. If this is your first time with us, just know that his series was created by our marketing department to help our colleagues, clients and friends get to know the new and / or returning faces of STS Technical Services a little better.

I am 100% a Michigan Girl, I love my hometown and all of the natural resources that I get to enjoy around the year! I married my best friend and high school sweetheart, Kevin. Together we have our son Colton, who is busy keeping us on our toes all the time, and our dog Sady.

I Studied General Sciences at my local Community College and previously worked at STS Technical Services; starting out as a Recruiting Coordinator and transitioning into a Recruiter. I am overjoyed to be back on the STS team!

Questions 2: What do you like to do for fun when you are not working?

So when I said I enjoy the Natural Resources that my home offers, I wasn’t joking! I love being outdoors and living near the water. Summers here are beautiful! We have one of the best beaches in the state, so I love to spend as much time as I can there or on the Ausable River. I enjoy fishing with my husband, boating with the family, kayaking, and camping! In the winter, I love to get out and go ice fishing.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

Wonder Woman because she believes in love. She is one of the most compassionate and loving superheroes and tries to do what is best for mankind.

Jami Drexler (2)

As our team continues to grow, we would like to take a moment and introduce you to Jami Drexler, our newest Recruiter in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Jami is just getting started on her second week, and since most of our team is still working remotely, we thought this post would be a cool way for you to get to know Jami a little bit better. To that end, we asked her three questions, and the responses she was kind enough to share are highlighted below.

I have been in technical recruiting for six (6) years. I started working for an IT firm and then went to work remotely for Monster.com.

Throughout my professional career, I have supported contract, contract-hire and direct hire roles throughout the United States and Canada.

I am experienced in full life-cycle recruiting, client management and working with offshore teams. I went to MATC Madison (It’s in Wisconsin) to become a dental assistant before deciding to take another path in the hospitality industry. After that, I discovered staffing / recruiting and quickly knew that I had found my niche!

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two little shih-tzu mixes and my family.

I am from Germantown, Wisconsin but have lived in Florida and Texas. My dogs are my little babies, and I take them everywhere with me and they are always right by my side while working from home.

I love being outdoors camping, taking road trips, hiking all over the U.S. and doing Bikram Yoga. My husband and I eloped because of COVID, and we are really looking forward to planning a family wedding as soon as we get our vaccinations and following that ceremony up with a proper honeymoon once it’s safe again to travel outside the country.

Question 3: If you could be any superhero, which superhero would you be and why?

If I could be any superhero, I would want to be Superman. Why? That’s easy… so I can fly!
