LEAD Marine Jacksonville draws on life lessons to help them be successful.
“We choose to focus on staffing a specific number of positions that we know inside and out, rather than over-promising with an across-the-board approach that often can’t live up to its promise,” said Alan Biliti, LEAD Marine San Diego’s Account Manager, “And this has allowed us to build relationships with client’s where when they come to us, they know they’re getting a worker who has been hired by LEAD with a specific intention in mind.”
