John Lowell - Chief Executive Officer & Founder

Why I’m Here: I started Outsource about twenty-one years ago with the dream of creating a business that could serve as a vessel through which we all realize our life aspirations… and have lots of fun while we do it. I pride myself and the company on being incredibly creative with our strategic approach to the market-place. I have always been fascinated with the concept of scaling up small simple business models and my passion is Progress. I feel that we experience that daily at Outsource.

About eleven years ago, we figured out exactly who we are and what we do best. Since then, we have grown average of 35% a year, which is more progress than I could have imagined at the time. I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the most talented and committed individuals in the industry. Together, we have created something truly unique and remarkable at Outsource.

About Me:I grew up in Savannah GA and graduated from The University of Georgia with a Journalism Degree in 1992. My mother made me take a job in sales after two years of absolute failure pursuing more creative endeavors. I quickly realized that sales is my real passion which led me to Aerotek in Los Angeles. I left there in 1998 after being passed over for about twenty-seven promotions. I started Outsource with a good friend in Hermosa Beach. I am married to my beautiful wife Cathy and we have two boys named Jake and Luke. My passion is creativity and progress. I feel that we experience both of these daily at Outsource.

Steve Ebenhack - President

Why I’m Here: People often ask me what I like so much about the company and what it is that keeps me engaged day after day. I always tell them the same thing: This organization has always given me the opportunity to stand out and create noticeable results. There is nothing more fulfilling or more inspiring. I’ve been a recruiter, an account manager, a regional manager, and the manager of all national accounts. Now I am the President for the entire organization.

About Me: I have worked at Outsource for twenty years. It was my first real job out of college, and it’s now my lifelong career of choice. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our children.

Shawn Dale - VP of Sales

Why I’m Here: I chose Outsource for the limitless opportunity. I opened up the Bay Area office seventeen years ago, and it’s the people who work within the company and the clients with whom I’ve built relationships that keep me coming back day after day. There’s nothing more satisfying than reporting back to the team with the never-ending success stories of how Outsource has been able to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.

About Me: Originally from outside of Philadelphia, I am an undeniable family man. When I’m not busy with my wife and two kids, I love the outdoors: skiing, fishing, and backpacking– I really enjoy California and all it has to offer. And I’m delighted to be working for a great company and with a talented group of people.
Jessica Ruiz - Director of Branch Operations

Why I’m Here: I was referred to Outsource through a friend, but quickly learned for myself how passionate, energetic and driven everyone here was about our business and growth. Outsource promotes limitless opportunity and possibilities from day one. I started as a recruiter in 2012 and now oversee our LA and PHX Branches. Every day is different, exciting and challenging all at once, and I’m proud to be a part of such a dynamic team and environment.
About Me: Born and raised SoCal! Fair to assume you can find me at the beach, eating anything with avocados and always on the move. After graduating from UCLA (Go Bruins!), I joined our LA Outsource Team and started my career with this lively group of people. Through recruiting, sales and now management, Outsource has always given me the runway to launch my career while constantly pushing me beyond what I thought I was capable of each step of the way.

Smita Abraham - Director of Credit and Collections

Why I’m Here: From the beginning I could see that Outsource was a special company—it is dynamic and always evolving. I’ve always wanted to be somewhere where my work mattered and I could make an impact. I am lucky to have both here. No two days at Outsource are the same and I find myself thriving in an environment that is fast-paced and exciting. The best part about Outsource is the people. I’ve never met individuals who are more committed to achieving success—and having fun while doing it.

About Me:I grew up in Michigan (Go Red Wings!) and went to school at Grand Valley State where I studied Occupational Health and Safety. After graduation, I moved to Chicago to experience life in the big city. There Outsource took a chance on me and I started as a Recruiter in 2012 and I haven’t looked back since. Outsource has given me an unique opportunity to build my career while challenging me to adapt, grow, and succeed. Recently, I was given the chance to take on the role of Director of Credit and Collections Manager and relocated to Los Angeles. In my spare time, I like to spend time exploring my new city with my husband and puppy.

Jennifer Warriach - Director of Recruiting Operations

Why I’m Here: Outsource keeps you sharp and on your toes. The environment here is fast-paced and there are new challenges every day. I also really like the people I work with–not only my colleagues inside the company, but the candidates that we staff are also fantastic. At the end of the day, I feel very fortunate to be able to team up with other people who are driven, dedicated, and hard working.

About Me:I’m originally from Dallas and studied Psychology at Texas Tech. I always wanted to be a Recruiter because I thought it would be a great way to enter the workforce while I figured out what career I wanted to pursue–not only would I be putting people to work, but I would also know what companies look for when they hire. Ultimately, this led me to Outsource and I love what I do. In my spare time, I like to travel and go see live music when I can. Food is a passion of mine so I like to explore the great restaurant scene in Dallas—La Duni for Latin American cuisine, Tei Tei Robata for sushi, and discovering the excellent Tex-Mex, Indian, Greek, and Middle Eastern cuisine the city has to offer.

Lorraine Sepulveda - Payroll Manager

Why I’m Here: I was referred by a friend to do filing for about a month and today, almost 5 years later, I became the Payroll Manager of the entire organization. Outsource has presented opportunity after opportunity for me to grow, not only in this company but professionally as well. I have the privilege to work under great management and amazing employees every single day. The positive energy and atmosphere in all Outsource offices is something that is very hard to find nowadays. Outsource is my second home (and second family), I look forward to spending many more years with this amazing organization.

About Me: I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I come from a enormous Mexican American family, where being loud is the only way to be heard. When I’m not at work, making sure everyone is paid on time and correctly, I enjoy spending time with my friends and basking in the beautiful California weather. I am upbeat, always smiling and very outgoing. Outsource is a perfect fit for me and my lifestyle.

Jake Durkee - Director of Electrical

Why I’m Here: I was referred by a friend of mine who was hired in the Phoenix office. Originally, I had interviewed to be a Recruiter. Upon learning about my previous experience in Inside Sales, I was approached about an opportunity to be the first dedicated Inside Sales Representative in the company. Today, four and a half years later, I am the National Sales Manager. Outsource has truly given me the opportunity not only to grow as a professional within the company, but also personally within life itself. My passion is building relationships and developing business, and this is something I get to do every day I come to work. I have watched this company grow exponentially year after year, and every week is exciting because we are growing so quickly. With growth brings challenges and obstacles, but most of all excitement. I am blessed to be able work with such a talented group of individuals who all share the same passion.

About Me: I’m originally a Phoenix native, I moved to Los Angeles thirteen years ago to pursue a career in film production. After a few years of working in the industry, I realized it wasn’t my true passion. I was then given the opportunity at Outsource, and haven’t looked back since. When I’m not at the office, I like to spend my time outdoors, playing golf, going to live music, hanging with my dog and wife, and following professional sports.
