STEVE WEBER - PRINCIPAL
A lifetime New Yorker, attended Syracuse University with a degree in Finance and Marketing. He co-founded Access Staffing in 1986 with partner Mike Weinstein. Steve also works a recruiting desk while managing the Finance/Investment recruitment division. His hard work has helped connect businesses and candidates to create a stronger working economy. Weber and Weinstein are celebrating the company’s 30th anniversary this year, and in that time Access Staffing has grown to be New York's leading privately held staffing firm, providing temporary, direct hire and customized career staffing solutions nationally. "It has been a great 30 years, but we don't plan to rest on the accomplishments that have made us who we are today," said Steve. "The staffing industry has not shown any signs of slowing down, and Access Staffing hasn't either. We will continue to develop innovative and flexible staffing solutions, to help our clients obtain stronger control and gain the best talent in the market."
Graduated from Syracuse University in 1983 with a degree in Marketing. His talent as a recruiter was quickly evident after he entered the staffing world fresh out of school. In 1986, Mike teamed up with his partner, Steve Weber, and they opened Access Staffing; the original office was 1500 square feet, and there were four employees. Today, Mike still works his own desk and is recognized as one of the most successful, effective technology recruiters in the region. He leads a division of 14 other recruiters and operations staff, which are part of the larger Access Staffing. The company as a whole has over 100 dedicated professionals offering temporary, permanent and temp to perm staffing services. Since Mike is both an owner and a hands-on headhunter with years of experience in the trenches, he offers his clients the rare combination of skill and control, which are integral components to effective placements.
