Brandon “Magic Man” Hayes can often be seen running in multiple directions at the same time. He wears a lot of hats as he runs the tight ship known as Kalos Consulting. Brandon wanted to be a magician as a kid, but we think he really might be one as he creates magic here every day. Brandon has his hands full with wife Valerie, 2 young daughters Arielle and Lucy, and Toby the Spaniel. But no matter how much he’s juggling, he keeps his magical powers focused on business.
Brandon is a true lover of the outdoors and will take every opportunity to get a little dirty. He loves hunting, fishing, camping, and being in the sun. That must be why he can eat so much at those Brazilian steakhouses he loves so much. Brandon says the key to his heart is an adventure, but we know it’s really fresh brewed iced tea. Shaken, not stirred. When he isn’t making magic happen around the office, he’s laughing, telling jokes, and making people smile. He’s really a giant cuddly, sweet kid at heart but don’t tell him we said that.
A great way to break the ice with Brandon is to ask him about his voice impersonations. He does a lot of them and is quite talented at it.
Anthony “Rugged Teddy Bear” Coltman has an eye for talent, that’s why he’s so effective as our senior recruiter. We think it’s because he’s great at noticing the unsaid details. Likely, considering his role as loving husband to Evelyn and attentive father to Addy & Sierra. Despite being a giant teddy bear and super easy to work with, Anthony is truly a rugged fella’. He loves to be barefoot and his favorite mornings are those where nature, mainly birds, is responsible for waking him up.
Anthony collects high-dollar lumber pieces to craft into timeless furniture for his family. He loves to be outside and enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, nature photography, and spending time by the ocean. But don’t let that fool you, Anthony also writes poetry, laughs at his own jokes, and is inspired by Nicolai Tesla. Consumed with learning, Anthony is a big fan of taking risks and using your faults as a catalyst for growth. He’s known for having a large pallet and a genuine love for flavors. To get on his good side, it’s a sure bet to offer him eggs benedict on potato pancakes (assuming you’ve heard of such things.)
A great way to break the ice with Anthony is to ask him about his dream Toyota Land Cruiser 70 series, equipped with a tented roof and fully functioning fridge.
Sandra “Sweet as Pie” Ensign (no, we didn’t give her that nickname but we agree it suits her) is the glue that holds our organization together. We think it may be due to her OCD-like organizational obsession. Like organizing her closet by colors and season. Whatever the case may be, we’re lucky to have her on top of every project. You’ll get to know Sandra in working with us and like us, we know you’ll love her.
Sandra has lived all over the sunny parts of the US and Germany. She loves her husband Patrick, her doggo Hailey, and Reese’s candy. If you’re looking to bribe her, we suggest Filet Mignon and Oreos, prepared separately, of course. As a recent resident of Phoenix, AZ, Sandra enjoys hiking, running, swimming, and nature walks with Hailey. Her dream would be to own a huge dog resort where her and Hailey can spoil and love (formerly) homeless dogs until their hearts are content.
A great way to break the ice with Sandra is to talk about music, as she was once a DJ and radio broadcaster.
Abbie “Artsy Mom” Fisher works hard to help our team recruit and manage talent. Abbie’s family-first attitude is why she’s so patient and compassionate in her duties here at Kalos. When she’s not working, she’s constantly spending time with her 2 kids Alayna and Cullen, and Mike, her college sweetheart. Abbie and her children love arts and crafts, scrapbooking, and poetry.
Abbie collects anything related to dolphins as well as writing children’s books in her free time. Her creativity and love for arts are only surpassed by her love for dogs. She also loves to give to her community, finding as many ways as possible to contribute to her church, and her children’s school. As a kid, her career goals were to be a successful author, as well as design advertisements that will run during the Super Bowl.
A great way to break the ice with Abbie is to talk about her collection of Disney items. We’ll warn you though, it’s a pretty big collection.
Jonathan “Family First” Valdez is a man who always has his eyes on the prize in clear focus. He prioritizes family and has an extremely close relationship with his parents. We think that’s why he’s so good at walking through our talent and hiring processes with our clients. His patience, understanding, and listening skills are super attuned to their needs. When he isn’t helping others, Jonathan is spending time with Daisy, his miniature boxer fur baby. And eating Mexican, he loves Mexican food! If you want to get on his good side, we suggest starting there.
Jonathan is a sports lover. As a former athlete, he loves to watch and participate in sports as often as possible. As a youngster, his dream was to be a professional athlete. He has always been recognized by his peers for his athleticism and talent for sports. In between sports, you can find Jonathan at his church where he spends time with his fellow church members or ‘extended family’. They will all tell you that he is the first one to offer help, support, and guidance. Jonathan is a fun, outgoing guy who’s really talkative and always described as being full of joy.
A great way to break the ice with Jonathan is to share with him a good ‘rags to riches’ story. They are his favorite and he loves to learn about as many of them as possible.
