Brittany Ritchie, President and Founder

Brittany excels in establishing relationships with companies who are looking to an outside source to realize their unique staffing needs. Recruiting for chemical companies who need to hire professionals with a very specialized skill set and expertise is a challenge. She enjoys connecting people with companies where there is a mutually beneficial relationship, and takes pride by doing so quickly. Finding that right person for a company opening is a welome challenge as Higher Recruitment strives for providing quality candidates.

Brittany's experience in the military serves her well in this regard, as it was up to her to consistently decide which soldiers were right for which job. Looking back she recognizes this was also her first experience in the world of recruitment.

"I take pride in this company and my work, and I will always follow through with the perfect hire."
