Automating Upward


I’m excited to visit with clients and friends today at the Automate Show, #automate2023 in Detroit.

23 years ago, when I started SCN – Search Consulting Network, I never would have imagined how advanced the automation sector would have become.

And if you told me we’d be exhibiting alongside some of the greatest companies in the world, at the absolute best automation show in the world … I never would have imagined that either.

It’s an arduous task getting a recruiting desk going.

Day to day survival consumes the mind.

Difficult to think or plan far ahead.

23 years later, here we are.

40+ associates.

Front and center at #Automate, and today SCN is a leading national automation Search Consulting and Recruiting Firm.

Special thanks to our Automation Recruiting Team for the incredible work they do for our clients:

Gregg Arneson
Barbara Castellini
Samson Kakos
Kasey Garant
Ashley Brenberger
Tiffany Wilson
Todd Broski
Chad Harkelroad

Thanks also to Lauren Winn, our Marketing Specialist, for all of the work in setting up our tremendous trade show marketing efforts.                             

If you’re at the show, please stop by booth #3547 and say hello.

Keep it rolling everyone, there is too much opportunity not to!
