Outsource expanded its footprint in the staffing world by opening an office in Seattle, Washington earlier this year. Michael Lippert, a Business Development Manager who started with Outsource in the Denver office just over a year ago, left to open the new Outsource office in Seattle and effectively established a foothold in the Northwest. Outsource has been growing its structured cabling, electrical and building technology staffing business in Seattle for nearly four years, which was handled remotely by Sam Jarvis before the opportunity to open a new office was presented to Lippert. Not wanting to miss a great opportunity, Lippert jumped at the chance. Michael joined Outsource wanting to prove that he was an asset to the company and feels that he earned the opportunity that was presented to him. When asked about his goals in the Seattle market, Lippert said, “I want to establish a beach head, gain momentum, penetrate the market as deeply as possible, increase sales, and build the company so it is necessary to hire an additional recruiter by the end of the year.” He compared the market in Seattle to the one in Chicago. “Both are challenging in that they have a heavy union presence. Regardless, each market has huge potential for growth in our highly specialized niche.” Lippert is tasked with covering Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Canada from the new Seattle branch.
