He impressed his interviewers and was hired by a leading advisory firm as an IT recruiter in the financial services industry. This is where he met Doug Klares, President & CEO of ICS. From 1996 to 1999, he served as the manager of the tri-state area’s IT staffing practice and still spends much of his time implementing initiatives to further grow this offering.
Walden held several leadership roles and managed additional staffing practice areas, including the legal & compliance, accounting & finance, and sales & marketing practices.
