Contract Professional, Inc. (CPI), one of the nation’s leading VOSB and NVBDC certified veteran owned technical solutions company, has launched an information technology recruitment division and retained the serviced of industry expert Bradley Blue to act as the Director of Business Development. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, the IT recruitment division has been meticulously designed by CPI’s President, Jim Cowper to focus on attracting and retaining the highest quality tech candidates in defense, cyber security, banking/ finance and driverless car technology.
Cowper has been laying the groundwork for the IT recruitment department since he accepted the CPI presidential position more than three years ago. The culmination of a multi year plan to become best in class with the integration of advanced recruiting technologies including JobDiva and ADP, CPI’s IT recruitment division is the next logical step for CPI. “Because almost every company in the United States is integrating technology into their day-to-day operations in some fashion; and the 25 most highly coveted and highly compensated employment opportunities in the U.S. are in the advanced technology space, data analytics has consistently supported my instincts to advance CPI’s position in the information technology vertical,” said Cowper.
CPI’s history as a veteran owned company, with a highly successful record of recruiting and employing veterans will ensure a consistent talent flow to the newly launched information technology division. “CPI brings decades of world class recruitment strategies and access to the highest quality military and civilian candidates in the country,” said General Richard Miller, Brigadier General, US Army (Ret) and National Veterans Business Development Council (NVBDC) Vice President and Board Member. “With the exploding need of cyber security IT talent, the launch of the IT division is the logical next step for the company as they rise to meet market demands.”
Utilizing the strategic alliances Cowper has been cultivating with the NVBDC and other organizations for several years, Blue and his team will focus their efforts on NVBDC Fortune 500 companies who endorse the NVBDC certification, such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, as well as current clients in the automotive and DoD sectors.
