George Vandekas is a Partner with Recruiting in Motion. He started his career in the recruitment industry in 1997 and specializes in placing Finance and Accounting professionals in both permanent and contract positions.
George’s recruiting career began with a multinational staffing firm where he quickly established a keen ability to tune into clients’ needs and identify top candidate talent. Throughout his tenure, George was consistently recognized as a high producer.
The key to George’s success lies in his ability to make and maintain strong interpersonal relationships with both his candidates and clients. His honesty and integrity have been integral to his ongoing success.
George’s enthusiasm for his career comes from a history of soccer; playing, coaching and mentoring. As a player, he performed and played to the semi-pro ranks and continues to be an active contributor of grass-roots soccer throughout the community.
- George has a massive passion for cars. He is easily engaged when the subject is brought up. This passion leads him to frequenting many motorsports events and he recently experienced traveling at speeds upwards of 170 miles an hour along the Gardiner Expressway as a passenger in an open-wheeled Indy car. People call guys like him…”speed junkies”, we just call him crazy.
- What keeps George moving, besides his passion for cars, involves the sport of putting on cleats and chasing a ball while the opposition attempts to limit his soccer life. George still reminisces about the time, in his early years, scoring while he performed a bicycle kick that helped lift his club to the championship. Over time, the story has varied from the goal being scored with a bicycle kick to it accidentally hitting the back of George’s head into the net, but either way we are very proud.
