Patty has always enjoyed people, she is social by nature so it’s no surprise she quickly became successful upon entering the staffing and recruiting world in 1992. With only a computer, a phone book, and a Tampa Bay Business Journal, Patty opened up a new Tampa branch for ARC, a small recruiting firm headquarted in Rosemont, Ill. Over the next ten years, Patty and her team grew ARC Tampa from a small company to one of the top IPO’s of its time. During those years Patty had the privilege of working for and with some of the most dynamic executives in the industry.
Patty then became blessed with two beautiful daughters and decided to stay home to raise them, all the while her passion for working with top executives sprouted and developed into an idea. The result is Porter Staffing Professionals, an ultra-boutique executive staffing firm focused on helping its client partners successfully identify, hire and retain top talent.
Today, Patty enjoys life with Preston, her college sweetheart and husband of over 26 years, and their two amazing daughters, Elizabeth and Mary Paige.
