Amy is a geek from the early 1980s when she began her career selling software and IBM computers to smart, early adapter business owners and fortuitously to Citibank credit card executives in Sioux Falls, SD. Armed with a liberal arts education and degrees in Mathematics, Physics, and Secondary Education from Augustana College, Amy found she loved to make people’s lives better with personal computers, which were the newest, hottest innovation since sliced bread. In the early 1990s, as the credit card industry in Sioux Falls grew, Amy’s career advanced to become the IT Manager overseeing computer and phone systems, reporting to the founders of one of the first secured credit card program manager firms. Her recruiting career began in 1996, as a Credit Card Recruiter at a Management Recruiters International (MRI) franchise in Sioux Falls, where she learned what MRI does so well, kept those best practices, and found ways to make her recruiting firm even better. For Amy, recruiting has been an amazing profession since.
Over the years, Payments have evolved beyond Credit Cards and Amy and the R&P Group Team have evolved along with the Industry. For Amy and her Team, recruiting is an extremely gratifying profession. As recruiters, we change lives and help client companies become even stronger by connecting talented executives with innovative companies that make it possible to transact and facilitate commerce in today’s world and into the future.
