Hailing from the home of famous “throwed rolls” in Sikeston, MO is our St. Louis Branch Manager, Matt Crouthers. He got his start in IT Staffing when he sold software training to consulting companies – he then got recruiter by one of those consulting companies.

As an avid fisherman and hunter, Matt’s bucket list includes catching a Blue Marlin, shooting a 200-inch Whitetail buck, and to hunt King Eider Ducks in Alaska.

His favorite part of IT Staffing is that there is always something new to deal with every day.

Kevin JovanovicTechnical Recruiter

Finding the right fit for the candidate as well as the client is Kevin Jovanovic’s favorite part of being a Technical Recruiter. "The sense of accomplishment is fantastic."

He discovered IT staffing at a career fair while he was attending Southern Illinois University. Kevin was born in Racine, Wisconsin, and moved to Lockport, Illinois, at the age of 7.

Swimming with sharks and owning a yacht are both items on Kevin’s bucket list. So is running with the bulls of Pamplona. Until he checks those off his list, he enjoys playing drums, fishing, spending time with friends and family, and watching the Green Bay Packers (Go Pack Go).

Brandon NelsonTechnical Recruiter

After growing up in Central Iowa and graduating from Iowa State University, Technical Recruiter Brandon Nelson was ready to venture out of his comfort zone - so he ended up in St. Louis!

He enjoys hanging out and exploring St. Louis with his friends and co-workers in his free time. Brandon’s bucket list includes traveling to New Zealand, own a lake house, and see The Killers perform "Mr. Brightside" live.

Although IT Staffing wasn’t immediately of interest to him after college, after interviewing with LRS, he knew that this was the company he was most interested in working for. "My favorite part about IT staffing is gaining knowledge while you’re working but also the competitiveness in today’s market with finding quality candidates."

Hilary HertensteinSenior Account Executive

A native of Morton, Illinois - The Pumpkin Capital of the World – Senior Account Executive Hilary Hertenstein loves pumpkin flavored everything. She also loves trying out new restaurants, because why eat the same food all the time?

Hilary’s favorite aspect of IT staffing is the fact that every single day is different, with a new set of challenges and things to do. She’s a bit of an LRS Consulting Services pioneer: Hilary was a member of the very first Associate Recruiter training class. She quickly moved into a sales role and enjoys amazing relationships with great clients.

Shea DeanInternet Sourcing Specialist

Little known fact about our Associate Recruiter, Shea Dean – she is named after the New York Mets stadium Shea Stadium (now Citi Field). Coming from a family of sports fans, baseball in particular, her twin brothers are named Mickey and McGwire after baseball legends Mark McGwire and Mickey Mantle. Shea’s love of sports extends beyond watching; she played varsity softball at her high school in St. Charles, MO and continued playing collegiate softball at St. Charles Community College.

Shea dreams of visiting every baseball stadium across the U.S., but for now she will watch her brother McGwire play baseball and her cousin Annie play softball. She spends her down time hanging out with friends and family – especially her cousin Colten who is like a little brother to her.

Not only is visiting every baseball stadium in the country on her bucket list, she would also love to see the Green Bay Packers play live and travel to England.

Shea got into IT Staffing after speaking with Vikki. She officially started as an internet sourcing specialist and enjoyed every minute of it, but I knew it was time for me to take on a new challenge in my career – so she is now an Associate Recruiter. "I really enjoy working in IT Staffing because it’s teaching me to use my brain more and I learn something new every day. I have never worked for a closer knit, fun group of people in my life! I really consider LRS like my second family."
