In IT staffing services, leadership defines delivery.
The service and the quality of a staffing company is only as sound as the quality of the people behind those services. The leadership at Adaptive Solutions Group saw an opportunity in 2002 to raise the level of service available to businesses in the St. Louis, Kansas City, and Denver areas and have been doing it ever since.
That excellence is founded on the bedrock of longtime experience in solving personnel challenges and intimately understanding the real needs of IT reliant “companies.”

'Our clients are always looking for ways to reduce costs within their IT organizations, but still improve mission-critical systems that IT supports. Combine that with the constant evolution of technology, and we're seeing a trend where many clients continue to increase the percentage of contingent IT workforce over full-time, which allows more flexibility in an unstable global economy. With this shift, our clients can quickly add critical technical skillsets and knowledge.'
ASG, Brent points out, was founded on the principle of 'prioritizing people' with an emphasis on personal relationships with both its clients and consultants. 'We believe in treating people as people and not as commodities.' As competition in the IT staffing industry increases, along with ever-growing restrictions imposed by vendor management systems, the ability to truly develop strong relationships and deliver exceptional service becomes more important than ever. 'We strive to make our consultants feel as though they're part of a company that truly values their efforts and cares about the direction of their careers.'
'From the back office support staff to the frontline Technical Recruiters and Account Managers, our team is the reason for our success,' he says. 'Each of them understands the importance of personal relationships and treating each other with respect.' That accounts for ASG's low attrition rate over the years. An environment that allows employees to grow professionally and personally has given Brent a lot of satisfaction over the years.
Brent graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 1995 with a B.S. in Environmental Biology before starting work as an IT Recruiter in Los Angeles. While in L.A. he advanced through a variety of roles in the IT Recruiting arena prior to starting ASG with Brad Wood and Matt Twyman.
Brent has a 'wonderful' family which includes his wife, Amy and three young children: Hudson, Max and Grant. Brent recently completed his first half-marathon, which he ran with Amy; he also truly enjoys golf, a pastime he hopes to enjoy with his boys in the future, and pursues photography and acoustic guitar playing too.
Matt holds a highly coveted Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Missouri, Columbia and has served as a Guest Professor for the Trulaske College of Business on several occasions.
He enjoys spending time with his family during his free time. His hobbies include running, snow skiing, playing guitar and fishing. Matt hopes to be a tournament fisherman post retirement. As a native of Kansas City, Matt has enjoyed watching the city evolve and grow over the years while maintaining a small town vibe.
