MEPatWORK Rings in 10th Year With New President

DES MOINES, Iowa - John von Harz is joining the online job Website MEPatWORK as president/COO. The announcement comes as the company celebrates 10 years providing career and hiring solutions for the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and general construction industries.

MEPatWORK noted that von Harz brings extensive experience in customer-centric technology solutions, including Web-based content, applications, and network operations. Along with having overall operational responsibility, von Harz will lead corporate strategy and shareholder governance.

von Harz plans to accelerate the MEPatWORK business plan while capitalizing on the company’s existing reputation. “Customers come first,” said von Harz. “The MEPatWORK team has positioned this company as the leading online recruitment organization in the construction industry. We will continue to grow through capitalizing on their hard work and expertise, and by delivering excessive value to our customers.”

Growth will be achieved through scaling the company’s proven direct sales and servicing model, expanding the awareness of the company’s brands, and layering in new value-added services. von Harz believes this will solidify the job board’s position within the construction industry, as well as open doors to other markets.

“Human capital is, in most cases, the first or second highest expense for a business, and clearly the most significant driver towards their success,” said von Harz. “In the construction industry, where skilled labor is at a premium, successful recruitment and staffing strategies are absolutely essential.”
