Learning New Tricks from an Old Dog

Chattanooga, TN will-brennan-oldest-intern

Flexicrew Staffing today hired a 73-year old intern who has decades of business experience in other industries.  This isn’t the first time Flexicrew has given employment opportunity to under-represented workforce sub-groups.

According to Bill Brennan, Flexicrew CEO, “We hired an older intern because we knew he would bring the experience, confidence, reliability and loyalty we look for in all our employees.  His generation has a different outlook on work that we felt would bring new life to our existing team.”

We are in the staffing business and we wanted to set an example of how our clients and others can benefit by hiring members of an older generation.  They bring experience that just can’t be found in other work groups,” said  Amy Michael, President of Flexicrew Staffing.

Our intern, William P. Brennan, will be located in our Chattanooga, TN office and also work in our Gainesville, GA and Mobile, AL locations to better understand client needs and support customer satisfaction initiatives.

William has over 40-years experience in small business and large corporations and an MBA in Finance.
