Thank you for your interest in Joseph Chris Partners.
It’s hard to believe 2017 will be our 40th year in business! I still remember running down the hallways of the office, undoubtedly annoying my father’s employees, when I was just a little girl, full of energy! A lot of things have changed since then, but I’m pretty proud that my energy level hasn’t!
During our 40th birthday year, we’ll be looking back at the road we took to get here: one of the nation’s best recruiting companies focused on real estate development and construction. And we’ll be looking ahead to the future of our industry and our company. We hope to share things we have learned along the way and provide you with industry-specific supporting information through our social media platforms and special “V” talks from me and other team members. We also want to provide you a deeper understanding of who we are, both as individuals, and as a team. And what birthday would be complete without a party? We’ve planned an epic disco-themed party to celebrate our 40 successful years in business, and maybe we’ll even see you there!
Without question, my father was the driving force behind Joseph Chris Partners’ success for decades! He and my mother started this company in 1977 with little more than a dream and the determination to make it a reality. My father took a big risk leaving a stable position and company to build his dream, but he knew with hard work, integrity, and innovation, he could build the legacy that is Joseph Chris Partners.
My father taught me many things, but one that has become invaluable to me was that nothing replaces hard work. Nothing is given; everything must be earned. That core value drives my business today, and it got me and the Joseph Chris Partners team through one of the most challenging downturns our industry has faced.
I purchased the company from my father in 2009, and the bottom fell out of the real estate market almost before the ink was dry. So, while I was learning to run my company, and the nation buckled under the weight of the financial crisis, there were times I worried. I worried for my team, my clients, my candidates, myself. I worried about failing.
But my father’s voice pushed me to work harder, think outside the box, create value, be different. With an amazing team of professionals who were invested in the dream my father built by my side, we dedicated ourselves to supporting our industry professionals, and each other. And we made it through, together, with the Joseph Chris Partners brand intact.
Over the last 40 years, we have worked hard to build a reputation of integrity, prove our commitment to our industry, and solve problems for our clients. Because of that, our phones here ring off the hook, and that is truly a blessing we will never take for granted. And because of who we are, who I am, and the values Joseph Chris Partners was founded on, we will never take you for granted, either.
I would love to share more about our company with you. I am very proud to continue my father’s legacy through my steadfast leadership and the contributions, loyalty, and perseverance of my team. I look forward to Joseph Chris Partners’ next 40 years, and I hope you will be a part of the next chapter of our story.
–Veronica Ramirez, C.E.O. and President of Joseph Chris Partners
