Founder & CEO
Meet Andy Hawkins!
Andy’s mission is to build strong, long-lasting relationships and to connect professionals at the right time. This is also the vision of Concentric Corporation. He is able to add value by understanding what is important to the people he serves. The success the companies he partners with & the professionals he represents, is his end goal in every scenario.

Meet David Hannam!
“People are interesting. Personalities are fun. Relationships are fulfilling. That is why I do what I do.”
David has been working in “relationship-focused businesses” for over 22 years! He has enjoyed a career in recruiting, business development, and leadership for multiple organizations and industries (college/university, public relations, capital development, and professional/technology staffing and consulting). The best part of every role that he has had was the ability to develop and cultivate long-lasting relationships on a professional and personal level with both colleagues and clients.
He enjoys building collaborative, productive teams of professionals that are motivated by common goals and results. David enjoys using his knowledge and experience to be a mentor to the teams that he work with and continually develop new ways to bring a relationship-based approach to business, rather than a traditional transactional approach.
David believes that business constantly evolves, and as a result, the needs and desires of our clients and employees also change. Businesses need to be continually innovative in order to constantly provide the highest level of service to the clients and people that we serve, and he is always exploring new ways of conducting business by creating efficiencies through intelligent workflows, processes, policies, and technology, while still maintaining a focus on the positive effects to the relationships of all people involved.

Business Development Manager
Meet Bailey Schollmeyer!
Bailey is what some would call a “professional people person”. She wants to be in YOUR corner, cheering you on and seeing you do well. Put her in a room with 500 strangers and she will be at home. This isn’t an overstatement either-building relationships are the launch pad for so many wonderful opportunities.
Her people-first approach is centric to my work as an IT talent acquisitionist and business development manager. Bailey gets to know you and your career needs as a business or professional–and then goes to find it! She doesn’t believe in lateral movement or “making something work” when it comes to helping the people she represents.
When Bailey’s not acting as a career catalyst; you can find her hanging out with her 2 spoiled dogs, coming up with new recipes, playing rec league sand volleyball, and spending time with her family and friends.
