Matthew & Tina Schubert have been the owners of two staffing companies over the past 25 years.
Matt joined the staffing industry as a franchisee of Tandem Staffing in 1992. His first office in Aurora, IL grew quickly and allowed him to expand to Joliet, IL in 1994. He opened 3 more franchises (Elkhart, IN, Fort Wayne, IN and Grand Rapids, MI) before selling his franchises back to the franchisor in 1997.
Matt and his wife Tina started Paramount Staffing in 1998 and opened their first office in Memphis, TN. Paramount’s exclusive focus on the industrial sector allowed them to become a dominant player in the market within 3 years. The company began expanding in Illinois as 7 additional offices were opened over the next 7 years including 1 in Urbana. During this time Paramount Staffing was ranked as the 6th Fastest Growing Privately Held Staffing Company in the US (2006), Ranked as the 11th Best Company to work for in Illinois (2007), and was recognized as the 20st Best Small Company to work for in the US twice in the last 8 years.
Today, Paramount Staffing is a $130 million company with 15 branches throughout the US and 4 divisions all focusing on the industrial sector: Paramount Professional (Perm Placement), Paramount Search (Skilled Industrial Staffing), Paramount Solutions (Light Industrial Temporary), Paramount on Premises (On Premises Staffing) and Paramount CFT (OSHA Certified Forklift Training).
Anthony (Tony) has built a career in B2B sales, sales leadership and marketing over more than 30-years working for companies from early stage start-ups to global market leaders.
