A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner and proud father, Oliver has learned to face any situation—no matter how tough—with discipline, flexibility, and care. He uses these same principles to smoothly move along searches until he attains the perfect hire. Add in good technique, a strong grip of each client’s situation, and his uncanny ability to understand what makes candidates tick. It would be remiss not to mention his morning routine as another secret to his success (which could have easily been designed by a Special Forces sergeant): 4:20am wake-up, 90-minutes of lifting, and guaranteed to be the first person in the office.
