Marathon TS, a Virginia-headquartered IT Professional Services, has added three new industry veterans to its Atlanta office, announced Pamela K. Siek, Marathon TS CEO and co-founder. The new team members are: Account Manager Ryan McConnell, Account Manager Brandon Sanders, and Technical Recruiter Melissa Ryan.
The announcement comes one year after Marathon TS opened its Atlanta area office. At the time, Siek tasked Branch Manager and Professional Technical Recruiter Kelly Lester with building the team to serve the burgeoning tech hub of the South.
Lester knew Ryan MacDonald and Brandon Sanders from working together at previous companies, and she knew Melissa Ryan through a mutual acquaintance. When forming the Atlanta team, Lester said she wanted to trust that she was bringing on excellent people who had experience in the staffing industry, and specifically technical recruiting.
“It really worked out that I knew each of their backgrounds, either first hand or through a mutual acquaintance,” Lester said. “I wanted to hire people I truly felt I could stand up for and say to the Marathon TS leadership team, ‘this is the right person for the job.’”
Account Manager Ryan McConnell comes to Marathon TS with more than five years of sales experience, including four in IT staffing sales. He is originally from Scotland and came to America for a new life and amazing career. Ryan is an excellent addition to our Atlanta team.
Account Manager Brandon Sanders is new to the staffing industry but not new to technology sales. He comes to Marathon TS with more than five years of sales experience. Brandon is a talented drummer and rocking the Atlanta market for Marathon TS.
Technical Recruiter Melissa Ryan brings with her more than five years of professional recruiting experience. She is a crucial piece to our Atlanta team puzzle. Melissa is passionate about technology, recruiting and building relationships with her candidates to help place them in the best companies in Atlanta.
Marathon TS wants to have more boots on the ground in Atlanta because of the city’s strong tech ecosystem, budding start-up scene and network of respected colleges, including Georgia Tech, and Emory University, according to Siek.
“As one of the largest technology hubs in the nation, Atlanta has a real need for the recruiting, hiring and contracting services Marathon TS offers,” Siek said. “Marathon TS has a reputation of helping our clients in the federal government space meet their hiring needs. Beefing up our Atlanta office presents an opportunity for us to expand our reach in the commercial end of IT recruitment while still maintaining the stellar service that our customers have come to expect from a woman-owned, boutique firm. At Marathon, TS, your family and we’ll treat you like it.”
