Auburn Hills, MI – Walt Disney was a big believer in curiosity and persistence. His “greatest legacy was his mindset that you could look at the world and impose your will on it,” said Neal Gabler, author of the biography “Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination.” In the same way that Walt Disney influenced the world with innovation, Reliance One team members are influencing the community with passion and dedication.
Reliance One strongly believes in thinking outside the box and impacting change. This is driven by curiosity and the ambition to succeed. In the spirit of change, Reliance One is proud to announce the recent promotions of John Martinez, Mike Loll, Josh Cobleigh, Sean Hill, and Lelia Cotton. Since their promotions, the five have been breaking ground in their new roles.
John Martinez was recently promoted from Technical Recruiter to Account Manager. John is from Auburn Hills, MI and attended Michigan State University where he graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Advertising. While at MSU, he played college baseball and his senior year, he was named captain. After graduation, he was referred to Reliance One by his twin brother, Jimmy, who is an Account Manager in our Chicago office. John has been part of the Reliance One team since August of 2014 and in January 2016 he was promoted to Account Manager.
Mike Loll was recently promoted from Technical Recruiter to IT Account Manager. Mike is from Davison, MI and attended Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH where he was all conference football and basketball. After college he worked in the Retirement Planning and Insurance field before making the shift to recruiting. He has been with Reliance One since August of 2014 and in January of 2016 he was promoted to IT Account Manager
Josh Cobleigh was recently promoted from Technical Recruiter to Account Manager and made the move to our office in Lisle, IL. Josh is from Flushing, MI and attended Central Michigan University where he majored in Entrepreneurial Studies and minored in Marketing & Professional Sales. He started his career in the Mortgage Industry and also helped to open a Hibachi Steakhouse & Sushi restaurant. He made the switch to recruiting when a current employee and childhood friend told him about Reliance One. Josh started at Reliance One in December of 2014 and in January of 2016 he was promoted to Account Manager.
Lelia Cotton started as our HR Intern in September of 2015. Her internship was completed in early January but Reliance One executives knew that they wanted her to join our team permanently, so they decided to expand the Talent Acquisition team. The team consisted of just one Talent Acquisition Specialist but with the immense growth that Reliance One has been undergoing and will be undergoing in the future, they decided to increase the size of the team. Lelia was offered the Talent Acquisition role in January and has been making waves ever since. Rob Wicker, VP of Recruitment and Operations said “she has been going above and beyond to think outside of the box and utilize resources and connections that have never been explored.”
Sean Hill joined Reliance One in December of 2011 as a Technical Recruiter and has climbed his way up the ladder since. He was promoted to a Sr. Technical Recruiter in February of 2014 and has made an effort to make an impact on the people around him and help them grow and develop professionally. All of his hard work paid off and he was promoted again to Talent Acquisition Manager, a new position that was developed to keep up with the growing industry. Jeff Gardner, President, said “we knew that in order to keep up with the growing demand for talent we would have to grow our internal Talent Acquisition Team. Sean has been with the company through thick and thin and has made a huge impact on every person in the company in one way or another”.
Reliance One is excited about all of the changes taking place and is looking forward to what this year will bring.
