Our Chairwoman Tracy Paquin launching her career as a recruiter in 1983

The Choice was founded in 1983 with the simple mission to be a “different type of staffing service.” Our leaders manage the organization to the same mission today. Our difference remains our quality. Our focus on the quality of our engagements rather than the quantity of our engagements.

The Choice has evolved through the years as our clients drove our scope of services. The Washington Metropolitan Region has served as an anchor for our service area since our start, however, as technology has made our Globe smaller, our service area has expanded to include the Washington-Baltimore-Annapolis region for our technology and leadership placements.

The Choice’s scope of work has taken us to Saudi Arabia as well—a stellar example of referrals and client needs driving our business.

Our history has been rich in culture, people, history and success. Our leadership team has remained true to our humble roots and sustained a focus on our valued associate that drives our quality and our client satisfaction. This may be historic but it is the basis of our future as well.
