Meet Our Corporate Team
The team that strives to help you beBetter.
Gino Scialdone, President and 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 foodservice equipment & supply industries.
Under Gino’s leadership, he realized 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.
Gino is originally from Herkimer, NY and is a University of Miami graduate, BBA, 1984. He married his wife Terri in 1993 and has two children. He is a very active member of his church. He was a University of Miami Cheerleader for their first National Championship, is a member of the University of Miami Hall of Fame Committee and the “U” Alumni Association, Proud sponsor of the University of Miami Co-ed Cheerleaders, and also coaches in various children’s sports leagues for the City of Parkland, Florida. He is also a talented musician who plays the drums and guitar.

Terri heads up our Corporate Business Office and brings with her an extensive background in the insurance and real estate industries.

She is extremely organized and very detail oriented and keeps our business office organized and on a productive schedule. She also holds a real estate license in the state of Florida and is one of the kindest people you will ever encounter. We’re lucky to have her.
