It’s not a gimmick or a line to sell our service, it’s the honest truth. WE take your business to heart by treating every placement as if it were staffing for an Action employee. We succeed when we find perfect matches for what your needs are. We won’t be happy until you are happy!
Marianne E. Moore, CPC, President
Marianne has over 30 years of experience in the staffing industry in Portland, OR. She founded Action Employment in 1999. She started in direct hire placement, and still uses those skills to train her staff in the craft of placing candidates for the long term – whether it is a temporary, temp-to-hire or direct hire position.
Kyle Travers - Recruiting Manager
Kyle was born on the beaches of Southern California and raised in the beautiful rolling hills of the Willamette Valley. Equipped with a bachelor of arts in international business and a year at Portland State studying anthropology. Kyle’s passions have lead him on a life of helping others, from swim instructor to staffing recruiter. If he is not cycling around Portland exploring new neighborhoods and eating great food, then you will find him somewhere in the forest backpacking to remote lakes, listening to one of his favorite podcasts, and taking pictures of the enchantingly beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Amelia Ralston - Recruiting Associate
Amelia is a Portland native who has returned to the stunning Pacific Northwest after living abroad in Colombia and Panama. She graduated from Boston University where she received degrees in English and American Studies and rowed crew on the Charles river. Amelia traded an oar for running shoes and when she’s not spending time with her family and friends, she can be found running around the Portland esplanade. She loves getting lost in a good book and in a foreign city, yet always seems to find herself in a coffee shop.
Tracy Pihir - Office Coordinator
Tracy came to Portland over 10 years ago and hasn't found a place she likes better in the world. She actually traveled the world on her own just to be sure! When she is not keeping the Action office organized, Tracy is spending time riding her bike, taking long walks with Bodhi and enjoying all that Portland has to offer.
