Leadership Team

 

Chris Owen

Chris Owen

President and CEO

Chris brings a dream

to life with the launch of Turn2Partners.  He built one of the most prolific local DMV staffing firms from the ground-up, leading to its eventual acquisition.  His foundation of success is establishing a ground-floor culture of transparency, empathy, fun and hard-driving work ethic.  It’s a steady hand at the tiller, leading a team of seasoned vets and ambitious young professionals as they strive to grow something remarkable.  Chris wears his old-school credentials with pride, but he’s also embracing the new millennial landscape and ready to plow into the new and exciting resources available for building and expanding networks.  Just don’t snapchat him yet; even if he swears he’s heard of it.

Dave Kolesky

Dave Kolesky

Vice President, Finance and Accounting Search Services

Dave took to recruiting

like a fish to water when he started in the business nearly a decade ago.  When he reflects on the things he loves, in the following order:  his wife, the Eagles and the gym, staffing slowly but surely established itself in a whole new category.  Dave is known to his clients as a passionate and driven advocate for developing their teams.  He’s a tireless networker and if you don’t know him, there’s a chance you will soon.  When asked whether launching his first business or watching the Eagles win the Superbowl was more rewarding, Dave shrugs:  Hard call, hard call.

Chris Tynan

Chris Tynan

Vice President, Technology Search Services

Chris is the technology

backbone of Turn2Partners; a critical hire that put Turn2 firmly on the map.  Tynan is recognized throughout the marketplace for his tenacity.  He services his clients with the same fever pace and intensity that’s a hallmark of the industry.  He’s equally at home building scrappy start-ups in emerging markets as he is tackling the impossible searches of bel-weather tech firms prominent to the DMV landscape.  A life of hard work and hard fun came to a screeching halt two years ago with the birth of his daughter, Quinn.  Now he just works hard and has fun watching Quinn do her thing. He and his wife, Chrisie, have never been happier. 

Tom Whitehead

Tom Whitehead

Vice President, Finance and Accounting Search Services

Tom is one of the

seasoned vets of the team leveraging his storied background in staffing to build Turn2 into something meaningful.  He has deep networks in Finance, Accounting and Human Resources to support his growing clients and when needed, replace top talent.  The businesses he serves span a broad array of industries and have come to rely on him as measured consultant on compensation, market conditions, and shifting industry landscapes unique to the DMV.  As a father of 3 little girls, Tom also specializes in soccer practice, hip hop dance classes and exceptional boxed mac-and-cheese.   Creamy, but not too creamy.  When he’s not playing dress-up, he’s teaching his girls the finer points of his true passion and love:  Nationals baseball.
