PrideStaff proudly celebrates the accomplishments of each of our branches. This week we’d like to shine the spotlight on our local staffing experts in our Gulfport, MS office.
Prior to joining the PrideStaff team, Gary Carmichael, Strategic-Partner and C.S.P., launched his professional career with an MBA. He became a Certified Public Accountant and transitioned into the manufacturing industry. During his professional career, he managed all facets of operations, including over 15 years in senior management positions related to plant management.
Today, Gary is the proud owner of two PrideStaff offices. He opened the Hattiesburg office in 2006 and the Gulfport office in 2009.
Gary has been deeply involved with a number of organizations that have supported his role as a PrideStaff Strategic-Partner. He served as the chair of the Area Development Partnership Ambassadors from 2009 to 2011, where he still serves as an ambassador. He also served as the VP of Membership and Secretary for his local SHRM chapter. Currently, Gary is a Board Member of the University of Southern Mississippi Alumni Association and was recently appointed the Chair of Economic Development for the Area Development Partnership.
Over the years, Gary has received several PrideStaff President’s Circle Awards for achieving sales goals. His secrets to success? He credits a range of abilities: listening to people and identifying their needs; utilizing his knowledge base to develop solutions; using his strong internal drive to help solve problems; and finding and retaining a talented team with these same abilities.
Part of the Gulfport-Biloxi, MS MSA, Gulfport is located on the northern shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The area is home to a wide mix of employers, including leisure and hospitality, government, retail, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare research, composite technology and shipbuilding.
Like all their offices, PrideStaff’s Gulfport office is engaged in their corporate mission to “consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.” Week in and week out, the Gulfport offices’s goal is to assure quality service to clients, by providing innovative business solutions and maintaining the highest ethical standards. As a result, Gulfport businesses get best of both worlds: the support of a national staffing service, plus local experts who understand staffing in Gulfport and know where to find the area’s best talent.
We applaud the way our Gulfport team members come to work each day with smiles on their faces, as well as their passion to help both clients and associates in need of their services.
