OUR COMPANY

OUR HISTORY

With over 25 years of combined recruiting experience, co-owners Dan Farina and Gina Cicconetti created PSS RECRUITING with the belief there was a better way to help clients fill their hiring needs with qualified employees. As innovative and forward-thinking individuals, they take a process-oriented approach in order to provide top talent to their customers. The initial step in this process is to understand the clients’ needs and company culture in order to lay the foundation for a long-term relationship. Working with honesty and integrity, they realize placing experienced individuals that bring success to the customer is more important than just filling an open position. Dan and Gina are committed to providing value-added services to their clients, their candidates, and their company.

Dan Farina

President


Dan Farina founded Permanent Solution Staffing with his business partners in 2007 after spending the first 11 years of his career with Avery Dennison. During his time at Avery Dennison, Dan was an extremely decorated Sales Executive that was promoted into larger opportunities within the company’s Marketing and Innovation Functions towards the second half of his tenure. After 5 years of focus on building the Permanent Solution Staffing brand, Dan felt that there was definitely a need for the company to offer Executive Recruiting Services to an already robust customer base. In 2012, PSS Recruiting was created to be a stand-alone business that could not only assist the company’s growing NE Ohio customer base, but also similar companies across North America. Dan has a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Youngstown State University and an International MBA from Baldwin-Wallace College.
