Our Inspiration

Technology is awesome—but it’s always changing. Hire Scene has been dedicated to remaining at the forefront of technology-driven staffing solutions since 1986.

While the technology itself has seen many iterations, Hire Scene is committed to finding and matching the best employees with the right job while remaining true to the personal, face-to-face side of the HR business.

Driven by the desire to enable people to work when and how they want to work, we have used our 30 years of staffing experience and the latest technology to improve the careers and lives of job seekers and employers one hire at a time.

Mike began his career in the staffing industry in 1986 as a franchise owner of a national temporary staffing company.  With a three-room office and a lot of willpower, Hire Scene has grown into a multiple location staffing provider focusing on “Improving lives…One job at a time.”  Most recently, Mike has launched our latest venture, Hire Scene, an online virtual hiring platform based on the Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University.  In his spare time, Mike loves to run, cycle, swim and compete in triathlons.
