Matt CrouthersBranch Manager

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.

Hilary Hertenstein

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.

What’s in store for her? Sky diving, running a half marathon, and travel to Australia, Fiji and/or New Zealand are all on her bucket list. Stay tuned!

Kristen Brooks

Kristen BrooksAssociate Account Executive

Kristen Brooks, Associate Account Executive, is excited to be back in the St. Louis area after spending the last 5 years in Kansas City, MO. Before moving to KC, Kristen went to college in her hometown of Edwardsville, IL and studied Psychology with a minor in Speech Communications. Being closer to home, she’s enjoying the time spent with family, especially her niece, and re-learning the area.

Her partner in crime is her Brittany named Cooper (check him out on Instagram at @cooperthebrittany2016). When not in the office, she can be found exercising in the gym or out with her dog (although he is an easily distracted running partner), checking out new restaurants, and enjoying a good happy hour. Her not-so-guilty pleasure includes anything on Bravo – namely Vanderpump Rules and Real Housewives.

What does she love about IT Staffing? “So far I really enjoy how not one day is the same with IT Staffing, sure there is a rhythm to things, but you never know what is going to happen throughout your day.”
