Tom DamewoodI've had over 28 years of experience in human resources and operations positions.

These experiences, combined with my skills in recruitment and organizational development, resulted in my decision to open Management Recruiters - Mid Hudson Valley in May, 2003.

Additionally, I enjoy public speaking, networking, and research.

It is extremely fulfilling to use my experience and education to aid the non-profit clients of Management Recruiters - Mid Hudson Valley. I am an active volunteer in the local community, with a passion for helping others. By carefully selecting the best candidates for each unique position, my ultimate goal is to ensure an outcome that is beneficial for all parties. Beyond exploring a candidate’s employment history, experience, and education, it is critical that there is alignment between the mission and values of an organization and those of the candidate.

At Management Recruiters, we are selective, passionate, and driven to ensure a successful outcome for those that we work with and for.
