Gulf Stream Marine & Link Staffing Services Putting Houston to Work

East End Chamber of Commerce Members Collaborating to Hire New Talent

HOUSTON, TEXAS – September 15, 2014(MarketWired) - Gulf Stream Marine selects Link Staffing Services as the contingent workforce solutions provider for their marine distribution terminals at the Port of Houston. The Gulf Stream Marine - Link Staffing Services agreement opens the door for eligible candidates to Inavero's 2014 Best of Staffing® Client and 2014 Best of Staffing® Talent List.

The event that kick-started the agreement began in the heart of the Houston business community at the East End Chamber of Commerce (EECOC) May 2014 Breakfast Exchange. This is where EECOC members, Fabian Galvan of Gulf Stream Marine, and Pilar Fanaselle of Link Staffing Services, presented their "60-second Commercial" about their businesses to more than 40 prospective customers.

Proving the power of customer-centered selling and networking, the final agreement was reached by the end of July and the first wave of industrial field staff were assigned to work at the Gulf Stream Marine terminals in August. New candidates are accepted and assigned upon passing a diligent screening process by the Link Staffing Services Houston East office team.

Pilar Fanaselle, Account Manager at Link Staffing Houston East said, "After hearing Fabian's 60-second pitch at the Breakfast Exchange and later when receiving his request to fill a large emergent workforce need, I believed it was critical to create and maintain Gulf Stream Marine as a key account. Because we value our field staff as the reason we are in business, their safety is our number one concern and the impeccable safety standards at Gulf Stream Marine made this a mutually beneficial relationship." She explained how the Link Staffing team communicates daily to ensure that their current and incoming field staff are integrated within the Gulf Stream Marine family and that they are exceeding expectations with the goal of providing a World-Class contingent workforce for a World-Class company.

All of Link Staffing Services locations offer the same high level of service to their candidates and clients. Candidates looking for a job or companies seeking employees can visit for more information.
