Born in Seattle, raised in Chicago, Bailey spent a little over a decade in Texas before finally making the decision move out to the Rockies. After many frequent visits, she decided to pack up, grab her dog and head up to Colorado to dive into staffing head first. She spent more than a few years in the hospitality industry, drawn to the customer interaction and energy. She enjoys almost anything outdoors, especially when the sun is involved. If the sun isn’t shining, odds are Bailey is inside with a book or creating something in the kitchen. She definitely got a double dose of the “cooking gene” from both mom and dad and has recently attempted her first garden, testing the odds of inheriting their green thumb as well. Bailey recently joined the Premier Group and is feeling quite at home in the Construction Division.

Randi is a proud 5th generation Colorado Native who attempted to break the family mold by taking some time to live in Bozeman Montana for about a year back in 2015 but eventually the lack of sunshine and actual snowy winters drove her back to her home state where the sun shines all year long and the snow melts as soon as it falls.

Speaking of, she is the all too proud owner of a blue pitbull mix named Atlas whom she will gladly show you a picture of anytime you ask! When Randi isn’t enjoying her Colorado summers she enjoys spending time with her family, rooting for the Broncos, discovering new restaurants and finding new places to add to her list of travels.

Rich is a transplant from Northern England who grew up in Thatcher Britain. Coming from three generations of farmers and truck drivers he learned very quickly that the harder you work the luckier you get. As a member of the Great Britain Track team he jumped on an opportunity to come to the US on a track scholarship once he realized, (before everyone else did) that his competitors superior talent was quickly catching up with his hard work. An entrepreneur at heart, he started a successful business in college that he later sold, before beginning a career in Staffing. Having spent the next 10yrs climbing the corporate ladder, only to realize that the view wasn’t all it was made out to be, he switched his interests back to building a company and a culture the way he believed all companies should look. Despite a successful career in sales and business, by far his proudest achievement is his amazingly talented children who quickly ground him and remind him every day what life is really about.
