Irvine, CA – KORE1, a leading provider of IT, creative, and engineering staffing solutions nationwide, has achieved monumental success through their direct hire division. Started in the fall of 2013 and led by Devin Hornick, the direct hire team has grown over the past five years to place nearly 550 individuals at a combined $55 million in salaries.

“The team’s support and deep tech knowledge have allowed us to expertly source and place candidates more quickly and at more competitive rates than our competition,” shared Hornick. “Our clients continue returning to our services and referring us to their peers because of our high-quality candidates and true understanding of their needs.”

“The direct hire division has made a massive impact on KORE1’s ability to grow, expand into new locations, and enter new markets,” said Brian Hunt, Senior Partner of KORE1. “We have built five new offices since starting the direct hire practice, and their stellar overall performance is a significant factor in the organization’s past and future success.”

The division provides both direct hire solutions and executive search services across IT, product, and marketing positions. Success in these roles is driven by a full understanding of what type of professional will not only fulfill the job requirements but will add value to their team and their company’s culture. This diligent and meticulous approach to understanding each role gives KORE1 the ability to locate the right candidates and fill clients’ positions with strong professionals who truly integrate into their new organizations.

“It’s rare in the business to find success for retained executive search, contingent direct hire, and contingent contract-to-hire out of the same organization,” stated Steve Quarles, Senior Partner of KORE1. “This division has leveraged KORE1’s industry expertise, furthering our stellar reputation and helping us serve our local communities.”

In addition to the hundreds of professionals the direct hire team has placed, Hornick has provided pro bono services to help more than 1,000 individuals secure new jobs in the past 11 years. He is also the President of Orange County Technology Professionals (OCTP), which provides a venue for more than 900 area tech pros to discuss trending IT topics, share tips and advice, and network with others in their field, and is the Co-Founder of Visionary Executives Network (VEN) in Orange County, which offers networking events while raising funds for local charities, including Charity On Wheels, Ronald McDonald House, and others. This heavy community involvement demonstrates Hornick’s commitment to KORE1, the community, and the professionals who live and work in the area.
