Ron Edele, CSAM

Phone:314-991-4355 x3015

I joined Westport One in 2005 and beginning in September of 2017, I agreed to take on a new challenge at Westport One and become the Team Leader for both the Technology and Construction Practices.

I’ll be able to take the skills and knowledge that I’ve acquired over the past 12 years in recruiting and help strengthen our Construction focused teams while continuing to support the technology practice.

I’ll personally be working to help our key clients in both areas identify and acquire highly skilled people to help create additional growth or help solve critical problems which are both at the top of mind to the key decision makers in the organizations where we've partnered.

My areas of focus in the Construction market are Retail, Hospitality, Multi-Family, Healthcare, Science & Tech, Road and Bridge and Transit Construction. In those areas, we deliver the best available candidates in Project Management, Estimators, Pre-Construction Management, Superintendents, Project Engineers and Executive Level Leadership.

Aside from my newfound responsibilities, I’ve been the top technology recruiter globally for Westport One. My #1 goal when working with any organization is helping to mitigate their risk of making a mis-hire.

My efforts there are focused in the Emerging Technology Market and have helped introduce my clients to the best available candidates in the industry, based on their requirements.

At the same time, I’ve worked to ensure that my focus is on helping individuals make life changing decisions from a career perspective to provide an upgrade to their current personal situation.

I work with both small and large technology companies in the Wireless, Wireline and Enterprise Markets worldwide. We help them identify and acquire highly talented professionals in the areas of Sales, Sales Management, Sales Engineering, Product Management, Marketing, Engineering and Professional Services on a global basis..

Customer Testimonials

"Ron is great - I know that when I place a vacancy with him, I can trust him to deliver."

"I find Ron to be a very thorough, professional and trustworthy person. As I juggle the demands of my own responsibilities, he has done an extremely good job of making the recruiting process easier for me and helped our company add star players. His last placement ended up setting record numbers in sales and was by far the #1 Sales Director in the company. Ron mixes a personable dialogue with a professional demeanor that makes me feel confident I have a true partner supporting my efforts for success. I have told our CEO that Ron specifically is the reason for my ability to maintain the business while looking to fill the gaps and is an asset to our growth, given the placements he has made. He is the bar for all other firms trying to earn our business."

"Ron is the best Executive Search resource I have EVER dealt with. He's a great guy personally and he goes way beyond what I have experienced in working with industry peers. Ron does not simply take a resume and throw it into the hiring manager to see if it sticks; he gets to know clients, fully understands their credentials and needs, and follows up on a routine basis to make sure each it sticks; he gets to know clients, fully understands their credentials and needs, and follows up on a routine basis to make sure each party is extremely well informed along the way. I consider Ron a resource I will want to stay in touch with and also regard him as a friend that I'd enjoy the pleasure of meeting in person. Ron is the definition of a PROFESSIONAL in every respect."
