John Nesser
John NesserChief Executive Officer
John Nesser has over 20 years of experience locating superior talent within the IT business community at both a local and national level. He brings 10 years of hands on custom development experience, primarily in the Microsoft windows and web environment along with a solid understanding of the SDLC. John held the position as Staffing Manager at Systems Group, an Inc500 consulting firm, from start up until the sale of the company. He has worked for both smaller consulting firms as well as national staffing organizations. He has experience staffing within the consulting industry as well as traditional direct hire.

Having been raised in a family where his father was a successful entrepreneur, owning multiple grocery stores and delicatessens, John learned from an early age the concept of hard work and commitment. He also learned from his father the value of customer service, honesty and “your word is Gold” mentality. Serving four years with the U.S. Marines, John learned what it truly means to work as a team.

A key perspective that John brings to the table, due to his technical development experience, is a strategic understanding of how the specific roles fit together within an IT environment. He also has an innate sensitivity to the detailed requirements desired within each technical role. This in depth understanding translates into a more accurate, successful and timely staffing solution.

If you believe you can or believe you can’t, you will be right.”

Wendy began her career in corporate recruiting twenty years ago with global giant, Cargill Corporation, largest privately held company in the world. Initially, she managed and coordinated college career fairs, but she was moved steadily into positions with more responsibility, organizing events in other states for Cargill managers to interview the top students recommended to be hired to Cargill.

She also interviewed senior candidates for higher level positions and made hiring recommendations to the senior recruiting team.  With this excellent organization, Wendy received top notch professional training and experience.  She was selected to became a Certified Targeted Selection Interview Trainer and her personal skills were leveraged in a role facilitating “Train the Trainer” in this interview method alongside other senior leaders in Cargill’s Training and Development Team.  Wendy also was requested to attend Cargill’s HR Development Program, training in every aspect of HR, ending with a simulated acquisition presentation to Executive Leadership.

Wendy obtained her HR Generalist Certification from prestigious University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Business.  At this point, she made a career change and struck out to become a senior HR Manager at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, for more than three years.  In this position, Wendy was responsible for overseeing the recruiting for staff and faculty.  She eventually left to do a more entrepreneurial full time recruiting position with an RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing), for Yoh HR Solutions, supporting Syngenta Seeds.

Later, Wendy landed an amazing opportunity where she was able to learn IT Consulting and PM/BA Recruiting and spent eight years with Management Consulting market leader Hollstadt Consulting in positions with progressively more responsibility.  The last over ten years she has been working in the IT Consulting Industry providing hands-on Recruiting and Recruitment Management.

Wendy currently heads up the onshore and offshore Recruiting Practice and team with four-time TechServe Alliance Excellence Award recipient MANIFEST Technology.  She loves the entrepreneurial experience she is receiving and the opportunity to help chart the destiny of the organization via her leadership.  The TechServe Alliance is the only national trade association exclusively for the IT & Engineering staffing and solutions industry advancing excellence through best practices and best-in-class services and opportunities and by enhancing efficiency and fostering growth and profitability for each member.  In 2020 for the first time, this prestigious award and great honor was given to specific individuals in the TechServe Alliance for their excellence in inspiring other, lifting team spirits, responding to challenges with extraordinary creativity and for exceeding expectations in driving their organizations, all during the duress of a global pandemic.  Wendy and her teammates were specifically selected to receive this coveted award for MANIFEST Technology due to their outstanding personal commitment, response, and leadership during a very challenging time.
