Gino Scialdone, CEO
Gino began his career at American Recruiters in July of 1986 working as a mortgage banking recruiter. After working his way up into the sales management role, he continued to successfully work his own desk for nine consecutive years.
In 1990, Gino also played a key role in transforming American Recruiters into a national executive search & consulting firm on two new fronts. One was the establishment of what is presently our largest segment of executive search, our Healthcare Recruitment business segment. Second, together with his now retired partner, was American Recruiters’ entrée into specialized recruiting for the food and food service equipment & supply industries.
Under Gino’s leadership, he realized that the business was poised for a new type of growth. He embarked on an initiative to replicate the American Recruiters’ business model, along with its successes, through the establishment of our franchising model, and in 1999 American Recruiters opened its first franchised location in Schaumberg, Illinois.
