Robert and Carmen Calamia, Owners/Strategic-Partners
We bring a unique background that will help us handle all facets of running a staffing agency. Robert's background is operations-based and Carmen's is in sales.
Robert graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a Masters in Public Administration and later worked as VP of Services at USIS and Cross Match Technologies. He recently worked with a business reconstruction team as a COO. Robert's operations, P&L, and service experience will come in handy in getting the PrideStaff - Fort Lauderdale location off the ground.
Carmen enjoys working with people, especially serving in roles that can change people’s lives for the better! She has many years of experience excelling in sales for nursing home and assisted living communities.
We take our responsibility seriously and work to gain the trust of our clients and candidates – placing good people in jobs that will hopefully transform their lives for the better while helping our clients grow their business.
The Big Picture:
We're honored to have been accepted into the PrideStaff family and were extremely impressed with the support, organization, intelligence, and overall direction of the company. We establish the Fort Lauderdale, Florida office with the pride and confidence that we represent an organization and culture that we are proud to be associated with.
The Scoop on Staffing:
PrideStaff is committed to placing the right people in the right jobs while creating an outstanding customer experience. This is our simple recipe for success. We work diligently to ensure that our clients and candidates have an outstanding experience and look on us as partners, not just another vendor. We look forward to serving the community while matching light industrial, administrative and financial professionals with positions in local businesses.
Secrets to Success:
The secret of our success is two-fold. First, the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated. The second part of our philosophy comes from Thomas Jefferson: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”
Favorite Stress Reliever:
We have two young children, and two grown boys back in Texas. We love doing things as a family and exploring the great state of Florida. We enjoy the beach, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and simply spending time together. Robert’s goals include learning to spear fish and getting the kids certified in diving while Carmen hopes to continue creating a fun, loving home environment.
