Matt Cellar

Matt CellarBranch Manager

Kansas City Branch Manager Matt Cellar has been with LRS since 2008 but started in IT Staffing long before. When asked how he got into the industry, he said "I got into IT Staffing so long ago I can’t really remember why or how I got in."

Matt is a die hard Mizzou and Kansas City Chiefs fan, and also likes St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals baseball. He plays golf occasionally and can sometimes be found making loud noises on a guitar, so it’s only fitting that his bucket list includes playing St. Andrews in Scotland and seeing Pearl Jam in concert.

Jolene Troidl

Jolene TroidlRecruiting Supervisor

Being from a small town in Iowa, attending college in Nebraska, and a current resident of Overland Park, Kansas, our Recruiting Supervisor is a true Midwesterner!

Her bucket list includes traveling to some of the most beautiful places in the world – Tahiti (and staying in an overwater bungalow), the Caribbean, and Hawaii. Until then, she enjoys spending time with her kids, shopping, and watching movies.

Jolene has been with LRS since 2010 and started in the Associate Recruiter program. When asked her favorite part of working in IT Staffing, she says "I like being able to talk to a variety of people every day and helping them find the right positions for their career goals."

Job Criger

Job CrigerSenior Technical Recruiter

Attending either a Bundesliga or EPL match, attending a World Cup Futbol match, and driving his Jeep across the Rubicon Trail are all on Senior Technical Recruiter Job Criger’s bucket list.

Born and raised in Southern Colorado, Job began his college education in Phoenix, AZ, but later finished his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Southern Missouri. He played collegiate soccer and then became a head coach and assistant coach for two men’s collegiate soccer programs where he won 2 national championships.

After applying for a position with LRS when he moved to Kansas City, he interviewed with “The Great Kerry Burns” and the rest is history.

"My favorite part is that I get a chance to work with so many different people.  From there it is about building a relationship with them.  Taking the time to actually listen to a candidate to find out what they are seeking and then being able to have a chance to get them into role that meshes up with their goals.  When they land a role that makes them happy and it is exactly what they were seeking, that is my favorite part."

Dan Barraco, CPSR

Dan Barraco, CPSRRecruiter

Recruiter Dan Barraco was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, attended Missouri State University in Springfield, MO, moved back to St. Louis, and is now living in Kansas City. With that, he’s lived all over the state of Missouri, which he thinks is worth bragging about.

The only thing on Dan’s bucket list is to make a bucket list, the rest will fall into place! He is a big sports fan – specifically hockey, golf, college football, and soccer. During his free time, Dan is working on his golf game to prepare for the LRS Summit Golf Invitational... as he says, "have to let Chris Walters know I’m coming for him."

Dan fell into IT Staffing when he moved to Kansas City and hasn’t looked back since. "Even though I may not be a programmer or engineer I’ve always been interested in technology and IT Staffing allows me to still be involved and learn more about tech every day!"

Brian Grant

Brian GrantAccount Executive

Brian Grant loves being outdoors – playing golf and snow skiing are among his hobbies – and he enjoys those activities with friends and family.

He’s been in the IT staffing industry for 15 years after working in retail. Helping people find good jobs is his favorite part of the staffing business.

Sky diving and traveling to Europe are the two items on Brian’s bucket list. Maybe he could explore doing both on the same trip?

Teana Stoddard

Teana StoddardSenior Office Administrator

It was February 2013 when Teana Stoddard fell into the office management role in our Kansas City office. Although she was an experienced manager, learning the IT staffing industry had her asking a multitude of questions, including "Whhhhat have I done???"

Those days are long gone and, as Senior Office Manager, Teana is “super thankful” that Senior Manager Kerry Burns hired her. "I try to remind him of that at least twice a year."

Away from work, Teana is a Kansas City Royals fan with season tickets - okay, a 10-game package. Watching her team play at a different MLB stadium once a season is on her bucket list, along with travel to Dubai and Japan. And she wants a Tiny House somewhere where there is no snow.
