Dave Grace

Account Manager

Dave Grace joined Adaptive Solutions Group in 2012 as an Account Manager. He has been in the staffing and technology space in the Kansas City market since 1995. Dave's experience dates back to the days of recruiting from a handful of resumes and tracking information in a three ring binder. 'This industry has seen countless number of changes throughout the years. The one constant has been the people. Whether it is candidates or clients, people have to know you hear them, that you are working to support them and that you will provide direct and honest information.'

A graduate from Kansas State University with a B.S. in Business Administration, Dave returns to Manhattan as much as possible to support the Wildcats. Other interests outside of the office include, working on home improvement projects with his wife, and spending time with family and friends usually watching some type of sporting event.

As an account manager with Adaptive Solutions Group, Kevin puts that work ethic to the test and is only satisfied when his clients are.

In his free time, Kevin enjoys spending time with his wife Libby, daughters Ila and Lena, son Oliver, and dog Penny.

Mallory Wheaton

Account Manager

While growing up, Mallory and her family moved around the U.S. a lot, finally settling down in Kansas City in 1999. As a child moving so often, she became very comfortable talking to perfect strangers and developing friendships from the start; in turn, this developed the perfect personality for the recruiting & staffing industry. She went to college at the University of Missouri (M-I-Z!), graduating with a degree in Communications & Business, and the main goal of finding a job where she could always work with people and help them achieve their goals.

Professionally, her top 3 priorities are customer service, being the best, and having fun with whatever she does. Personally, she is obsessed with the Chiefs, Mizzou, the Royals, Sporting KC, her family and two cats - Crash & Ozzie (affectionately referred to as 'the Boys'). In her spare time, she enjoys to work on projects around her house and cooking new recipes.

Joe Ahmadian

Technical Recruiter

Joe joined the Adaptive Solutions Group team in early 2017. Originally from the Dallas, TX area, Joe migrated north to Kansas to attend Baker University. While there he was a member of the men’s tennis team and earned a B.S. in Mass Media. Joe later returned to Baker for six additional years as the Head Coach of the men’s and women’s tennis teams. As a coach, Joe enjoyed the process of recruiting talented men and woman to attend a university where he felt they would be happy and successful. He genuinely finds great joy in getting to know people and helping them. Joe came to ASG to continue this passion by helping talented people find opportunities that align with their career goals and aspirations.

Spencer Edman

Technical Recruiter

Spencer joined Adaptive Solutions Group in 2017 with over a decade of sales and hospitality experience. It's safe to say that he knows what it means to prioritize people, and not treat them as commodities. He truly cares about people and enjoys helping them maximize their full potential. He's excited to be on a team that is like-minded and shares the same values. When asked what traits about himself he is most proud of, he responded, 'being dependable and hard-working.'

Spencer was born and raised in the Kansas City area and has a passion for all sports in his hometown. During his free time, he enjoys exploring new coffee shops, playing in his softball league, and spending time with friends/family.

Josie Ruggeri

Technical Recruiter

Josie joined Adaptive Solutions Group in 2018. Having graduated from Rockhurst University in 2016 with a degree in psychology, Josie left Kansas City to spend 3 months at Cambridge University managing their annual conference for young psychologists. Once she returned, Josie continued her work in the event planning space at Kicking Cow Promotions. This led to her love of meeting and working with new people to help them achieve their goals.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Josie is a die-hard Cardinals and Blues fan. Her passions include bargain shopping, trying the soup of the day, and watching Netflix while telling herself she will go to the gym...eventually.

Abby Tryon

Office Administrator

Abby joined Adaptive Solutions Group in 2015 as an Office Administrator. Prior to ASG, she managed a small office supply business where her main goal was prioritizing people. This is exactly why she loves working at ASG. 'Being able to work with a great group of professionals that are dedicated to helping people achieve their career goals makes the job exciting and just adds to the great atmosphere!'

Abby graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science. She enjoys watching football, especially the Wildcats and her Green Bay Packers!
