Angelo Ippolito, Co-Owner/Strategic-Partner
Ana Castillo, Co-Owner/Strategic-Partner
I have worked in the transportation industry for over 25 years in various management positions. I have supervised many people and learned what makes great team members. I have also owned and operated PrideStaff Chicagoland for 12 years.
I joined PrideStaff seven years ago, as a temporary receptionist. Since then I’ve held positions of increasing responsibility in the organization, working as a Recruiting Assistant, Staffing Consultant and Branch Manager. Coming up through the ranks has provided me with a broad staffing background that now serves me well as a Strategic-Partner.
The Big Picture:
My wife Sue and I made the decision to become Strategic-Partners with PrideStaff 12 years ago. We chose PrideStaff because of its commitment to quality and we have never regretted our choice.
I honestly love what I do! The staffing industry is always evolving and the job market is always changing. Each day brings new challenges, and I get great fulfillment from helping the employers and job seekers we support.
The Scoop on Staffing:
We use our proven techniques to recruit and find the individuals that best fit our valued clients’ needs.
At PrideStaff, we truly do live out our mission, “Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most,” every day. Whether it’s an employer looking for top talent, or a job seeker re-entering the workforce, our team is the driving force behind creating meaningful employment connections. It’s incredibly rewarding to make a positive impact on individuals, organizations and our community – and I’m thankful PrideStaff allows me to do that for a living.
Secrets to Success:
Treating our associates as we would like to be treated ourselves. Giving our clients the service they need and deserve.
Colin Powell once said, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.” This quote resonates with me, because at the end of the day, it’s about how bad you really want something. Being honest, committed and accountable for your actions ultimately determines your success or failure.
My favorite is being with friends and family. I also enjoy reading, following politics, skiing, and watching the Bears as well as other sports. At times, some of these actually cause me stress!
My idea of a perfect day is binge-watching Netflix with my fiancé and our 7-year-old daughter.
