Hamilton-Ryker announces expansion into Chattanooga
Posted: Wednesday, July 21, 2010 2:37 pm
The Hamilton-Ryker Company has announced their continued expansion of IT and professional services in Chattanooga.
Jason Champion, IT Regional Sales Manager, will drive the technology sales in Chattanooga by providing the following services: staffing, contract-to-hire, and professional placement.
Jason Champion will be aided locally by Jim Hall with Hall & Associates, a full-service agency with offices in Washington, D.C., and Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Hall, a native of Tennessee and long-term resident of Chattanooga, has served government and private clients for more than five decades. He is a leading expert on crisis management and government relations, and transportation safety and security.
President Bill Clinton appointed Hall to the National Transportation Safety Board and then to the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security in 1996.
Champion began his career with Hamilton-Ryker in 2009.
“Jason’s knowledge and experience in the technology sector, both in government contracts and incorporated companies will assist Hamilton-Ryker’s growth in the Chattanooga market,” said Kelly McCreight, President of the Hamilton-Ryker Company.
A native of Dalton, GA, Champion began his career in the staffing industry in 1999 as a Business Development Manager in the Atlanta, Ga., market.
Recruited by Technisource, Inc., in 2004, Champion moved to Huntsville, AL to grow and develop that market in information technology and engineering sales.
Champion’s success story: his ability to take a new market, with no sales and no support team, and grow that region into a successful revenue source with a recruiting staff, sales team, and support team.
He converted many large prospects to clients in the Huntsville market and has extensive experience in defense and aerospace contracts.
“I’m excited about expanding into the Chattanooga market,” said Jason Champion.
“I grew up less than 20 minutes from here [Chattanooga], so this allows me an opportunity to introduce Hamilton-Ryker to not just a new market but to a city that has always been a part of my life. Much like Chattanooga, Hamilton-Ryker was built on personal relationships. So our ability to provide personalized, value-added staffing services will greatly compliment a diverse, growing professional community like Chattanooga.”
Headquartered in Martin, The Hamilton-Ryker Company is one of the Southeast’s largest privately held staffing firms with 25 locations in Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia, Texas, Mississippi and Washington D.C.
Founded in 1971, Hamilton-Ryker is a complete human resources consulting and management company providing staffing and related functions in the professional, commercial, and information technology sectors.
