Super power: Pushing to his limits, then pushing through his limits
Alex has been in the trenches in financial services. He started in the mortgage industry and has now been in the business development and executive recruiting business for nearly three years. He completely understands what it takes to flourish in a fast-paced environment.
Alex doesn’t scare easily. He served in the U.S. Army and deployed multiple times as an Airborne Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment, a lethal, agile and flexible force conducting many complex joint special operations missions. Alex is also a personal trainer, helping athletes at all levels push past their physical limits to achieve their fitness goals.

Tina brings a wide variety of diverse business experience and razor-sharp wit to the CSI Financial team. She also brings a ferocious work ethic, built while working 60 hours a week putting herself through college at Jacksonville’s University of North Florida. Tina is a strong team-player and strategically forms partnerships with C-level executives across the country.
Tina is quick to form connections – “That’s the easy part. The hard part is building a lasting relationship.” She believes in fast starts and strong finishes.

Super power: Empathy
James is based in Tampa and has 24 years of retained executive level search experience. He’s also owned a consulting practice specializing in personality assessments. He’s a headhunter who is intrigued by understanding the unique qualities that drive an individual from both a personal and professional viewpoint. “You’ve got to learn to speak the candidate’s language, to learn what is really important to him or her,” he says.
He has a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Professional Communications from The University of South Florida, and he understands how critical good communication is. James knows that a good match is about more than skills; it’s also about putting someone in the right setting so they can thrive.
