About Us – The Eastside’s Staffing Experts
IT Network was established in 1997 and is headquartered in Redmond, WA. Our goal is to provide expertise and personnel that meet and exceed the demands and challenges of this ever-evolving information technology marketplace. IT Network’s mission is to help our clients locate and manage their technical workforce, but not just by providing talent. We also seek to act as a strategic and trusted partner.
Our company attributes its success to our recruiters’ technical knowledge, quality of work, people skills, and significant staffing experience as well as the hard-working contractors who make our business possible. We have a diverse client base in a variety of industries, from heavy industrial facilities to software development and medical equipment.
Technical recruiting talent is a valuable resource. IT Network’s recruiters understand that generic searches yield generic results. We consistently connect the client with the human resources they need because our team has the depth, the experience, and the training to attract the best and brightest talent available. Getting the right person for your project is critical. We have the tools to get you the talent you’re looking for.
Our Recruiting Team
IT Network’s dedicated staff of technical recruiters makes our company particularly well qualified to suit your needs. Our size allows us to respond quickly and flexibly to our clients’ needs while avoiding the bureaucratic gridlock of larger organizations. In addition to our permanent office staff, we work with several consultants that keep us current on hiring trends and needs outside of our area.
Sally Kernan is IT Network’s President and Sr. Technical Recruiter. Ms. Kernan began her recruiting career in 1979 with one of the largest contract-engineering firms in Seattle. She worked as the NW regional manager of a major technical recruiting firm in Bellevue for ten years before launching IT Network in 1997. Sally is responsible for contract analysis, negotiation and administration of employee salary and client fee schedules. She also maintains the company’s ethical employment practices and HR legal compliance. Our team stays current with industry trends and labor laws by active participation in industry organizations.
Peggy Hausmann has over twenty years of staffing and recruiting experience for both contract and direct hire. She’s spent the last four years with IT Network as a full-cycle Sr. Technical Recruiter. Peggy has an uncanny ability to combine traditional recruiting methods with a talent for reading people. Her duties include on-going account management and administration. Ms. Hausmann maintains contacts with our clients and contract employees. She’s also active in the recruitment of new employees.
Brian Kernan, our Legal Counsel and Labor Law compliance officer, first joined our team as a technical recruiter in 2010, and has since been an extremely valuable resource to our recruiting operations. During his time as a recruiter with IT Network Brian utilized his charismatic networking skills to fill difficult positions and create trustworthy relationships with clients. Now with his law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School Brian is once again a proud member of our team.
