Who We Are


Business Resources one

An organization is only the sum of its people. Fortunately for us, and our clients, we’re blessed with a diverse team of passionate, dedicated, and incredibly talented individuals – who are fun to work with and easy to do business with. 

Our Mission, Vision, and Core Values below weren’t written as marketing jargon, but instead to clarify our direction and guide our decision making. You have my personal commitment and should expect nothing less; regardless if you’re doing business with us as a client, vendor, job seeker, or team member.

Business Resources One, or BR1 as our friends call us, was created as the name suggests to be a resource to business leaders. More specifically, to give business leaders an unfair competitive advantage. After 25+ years of building businesses and teams, I believe there is no greater determination of an organization’s success than being able to recruit and retain enough of the right people.

On behalf of the BR1 Team, I look forward to and welcome the opportunity to work together.
