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 palate 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.
Betsie “Tenacious B” Zak is a woman of few words but of many actions. Tough, driven, laser-focused, she is the immovable force that keeps everyone performing at the peak of their abilities. With Betsie, there is never any doubt as to what she wants, which is why we think her eye for talent is impeccable.
Betsie is oft described as “a go getter”, a title that she wholeheartedly embraces. As a highly talented cook, Betsie has always been focused on the fundamental elements that produce accuracy. Always inspired by the stories of those who overcome high odds, Betsie is always moving the bar for her own performance higher. Her talents and precision in the kitchen have also fueled her passion for entertaining guests. It also helps that she can whip up a number of dishes featuring one of her favorite ingredients. Juicy, mouthwatering steak!
A great way to break the ice with Betsie is to talk to her about her love of film. Particularly, Turner Classic Movies.
Josephine “The Totally Optimistic” West is the slightly superstitious big-hearted bubbly personality that keeps everyone around her motivated. Her love of romantic films is only surpassed by her calming presence and caring heart. She’s so tender and caring for our recruits and never fails to make them feel welcomed and understood.
Josephine’s father immigrated from Italy at 20 years old where he had to learn English, along with how to make a career and a new life in a foreign territory. He was not only highly intelligent but patient and committed. All traits that Josephine brings to the table every day here at Kalos. She loves traveling, hiking, and walking with her 2 dogs Wrigley and Homer. She is a single mom of 3 teenagers so she needs those calming walks daily. As a self proclaimed good cook, she could eat pizza most days of the week and HAS to have Dunkin Donuts coffee EVERY morning.
A great way to break the ice with Josephine is to talk about Christmas ornaments. Josephine enjoys collecting them, and always adds one with every new place she travels.
Julie “The Savvy Shopper” Rezash is the pinnacle of positivity. She’s an extremely selfless, supportive woman who is always willing to go the extra mile for our clients and our team. Inspired by her husband of 32 years, she embodies the definition of “team player.” Growing up with 3 boys in baseball, Julie has learned to apply the benefits of sportsmanship into her daily operations work and her home life; building others up around her, focused on group results. This must be why our recruits love working with her.
Julie loves lazy Sundays of scouring flea markets for bargains. There’s something about acquiring items that you are passionate about, without having to pay full price. And it gives Julie a rush. Likely from her competitive spirit. Which must explain why Julie’s favorite activities are board games, books, and puzzles. One could say Julie is a bit of a paradox in her own way. Enjoying quiet mornings watching birds, and on the same night, hosting one of the best game nights you’ve ever experienced. Julie is extremely nurturing and empathic. If she could, we know she would use her magic wand to heal people’s hearts and rid the world of depression.
A great way to break the ice with Julie is to ask her about a Pub Pass. She and her husband Ron are huge fans of the magical passport, and we know she will happily talk you into it.
