Fred’s vision was to change the impersonal approach that was associated with the “employment agencies” has stayed with us into the millennium. This philosophy has allowed his firm to become one of the more respected and successful agencies in New York City and the surrounding area. Over the years Merit has applied its resources in developing a full service organization that provides superior temporary services including background checking and applicant vetting. Merit Personnel and Consulting still provides the old-fashioned virtues that made the firm a valuable asset to its clients; and to their candidates. We provide true assessing so that we are confident that they are the right “fit” for our clients and our candidates. He has transformed the traditional and impersonal “employment recruiting service” into a more personal and professional Human Resources Partner with both clients and candidates. Prior to establishing Merit, Fred spent his first five years developing a division of what once was one of NYC’s pre-eminent agencies, Stanton Personnel. Fred is a graduate of Fairleigh Dickinson University, 1977, with a dual major of Psychology and Business Management. He continued his education with the Cornell Baruch School of Labor Relations where he pursued a MBA in Industrial Psychology while establishing a career in the Staffing Industry.
