About Thomas Priester, Founder and President of The Sparta Group
After 20-some years in the logistics industry, I know it from the bottom up.
Starting off as a courier service messenger while a student at Hunter College in New York City, I went on to climb the corporate ladder at Yusen Logistics. During this time, I experienced firsthand the gaps and missteps in the recruitment process and approach. What was required was an intuitive understanding, appreciation, and recognition of the needs of both the organization and candidates, and yet this was distinctly absent.
In 1996, I resolved to provide this service, and founded The Sparta Group.
I have one ultimate goal: to be the facilitator who forges successful, fruitful, and lasting partnerships.
Whether you are an organization or candidate, I am dedicated to helping you move forward in meeting your aspirations.
“For over 15 years Tom Priester has been my primary recruiter for management and sales positions. Much of my success has been due to the strong management teams around me - teams that Tom helped build.”Lauren Pittelli, Global Logistics Executive, Freight Forwarding, 3PL International
