We had the honor of attending the Phoenix Business Journals Best Places to Work event for the 8th time in a row in early December. AP Professionals has been named as one of the top 5 best places to work in the Valley since 2016 in the micro category. This year, the event was Themed Viva Las Vegas & they sure brought the excitement!

Building Relationships That Truly Last A Lifetime

We live by our mission statement of “building relationships that last a lifetime” and strive to make this a reality each day!

Earlier this month, one of our recruiters was asked to officiate the wedding of a consultant that he recruited & placed back in 2021. This consultant has been with us ever since and has made quite the positive impact not only on AP Professionals and their assignment company but also on our recruiting team! To have been a part of such a personal, important, and memorable day is something that we take pride in.

Strong relationships can be hard to come by, but our recruiters make it a goal to listen to each candidate & truly find only what is the best fit for them. Sometimes that ends in a lifelong friendship!

“Some matches are made in heaven, others at AP Professionals!” – Jerry Tenenbaum

Congratulations to the beautiful new Mr. & Mrs. 💍 💐 💒

25th Anniversary Boat Cruise Celebration

This past weekend we commemorated our 25-year anniversary by inviting our 90 most impactful clients, past consultants and spouses that have assisted us on our journey to a Dinner Boat Cruise celebration. We chartered a steamboat on Canyon Lake in the Phoenix, AZ area for a sunset dinner cruise. The food was wonderful, and we had a Classic Rock duo providing background music.

It was heartwarming to me to have former clients who now reside in Rhode Island and Florida make the trip out to help us celebrate. From day one, our mission statement has been “Creating Relationships That Last a Lifetime” and I am beyond proud to have made that mission statement our reality. When I started AP Professionals 25 years ago, my vision was not farsighted enough to see us grow to a $35 million dollar firm with offices now in Scottsdale, Las Vegas, Baltimore, Seattle and Portland, Oregon. I have met the most amazing people along the way and am most appreciative of my internal staff of recruiters, administrators and business developers who have made these 25 years not only possible but extremely enjoyable.  

A huge thank you goes out to one of our consultants, Michael Jordan, who took a majority of these beautiful photos you see below.
