Alex Chamorro, a Leader in the Staffing Industry, Joins One of the Largest Independent Staffing Companies in the U.S.

Nelson, one of the largest independent staffing companies in the U.S., announces the appointment of Alex Chamorro to the role of Vice President of Executive Search. In this role Chamorro will be responsible for the implementation and direction of all Direct Hire initiatives within the organization. He will focus on hiring, training, and development of the Executive Search team, while assisting field management in retention and driving revenue growth for the company.

Chamorro brings to Nelson 20 years of recruiting and executive search experience in the staffing industry. His focus has been on Direct Hire Operations across his career, and he has experience in both working with the largest and most prestigious international recruiting companies in the world and founding and developing the most reputable regional boutique firms on the west coast. He has hired, developed, and trained hundreds of individuals who have themselves moved onto leadership roles, and he will be translating that expertise into his work with the Nelson team.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to blend my experience with boutique agencies and international firms in Nelson,” said Chamorro. “I look forward to expanding and developing Nelson’s community-based executive search teams while continuing Nelson’s commitment to excellence as a premier executive search group in California and beyond.”

Throughout his tenure in the staffing industry, Chamorro has taken a holistic view of building teams and developing employees by tailoring training to the individual. In his most recent role, he directed 7 different hiring initiatives that significantly increased market share in the respective markets throughout his region, in addition to being responsible for the opening of two offices, during which time he hired, trained and personally coached and developed new hires that earned the national award for “Rookie of the year” for three consecutive years at Presidents Club. At Nelson, he will be translating his successes in both business development and retained search into building up Nelson’s executive search practice and processes in both Northern and Southern California, while guiding local leadership in developing their teams to continuously attract California’s top talent to the Nelson brand.

“We are excited to have Alex Chamorro join our team,” said Chandra Pappas, Nelson Executive Vice President. “With his proven record of success in developing executive search teams, he will be a tremendous asset as we continue to grow and develop our Executive Search practice throughout 2019 and into the future.”
