Meet the Team

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.

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.

Ryan Velez

Ryan Velez

Director, Finance and Accounting Search Services

Ryan thrives on

the shot of adrenaline that comes with the close of a deal – when he knows he has helped someone with a pivotal step in their career. He never planned on a career in the staffing industry, but now that he’s here he can’t imagine himself in a job where he wasn’t making connections all day. Ryan has established himself as a change maker for top-market professionals ready to navigate that next step. He specializes in Finance, Accounting and HR candidates. His background defines his professional drive; as a son of a Cuban immigrant Ryan believes nothing can be truly earned without the dint of hard work.   He will readily engage in political banter, but beware; in a city not short on opinions Ryan is an expert at political repartee.

David McIntyre

David McIntyre

Director, Finance and Accounting Search Services

David is a machine

always at work for his network of candidates, and the batteries never seem to fade.  He prides himself on a deep reservoir of local knowledge of the shifting job landscape, invaluable to those he represents who are looking for that next big leap.  He’s placed countless executives, managers and staff across the DMV in the Finance, Accounting and HR professional disciplines.   When David occasionally unplugs, you’ll see him on the golf course, even when it’s cold and wet.  He’ll readily admit it’s an addiction, even if he’s not all that good at it.

Matt Brooks

Matt Brooks

Associate, Finance and Accounting Search Services

Matt has a passion

for staffing. Sure, everyone says that, but how many of Matt’s peers can claim that they learned the finer points of staffing around the breakfast table? Matt comes from a family of talent acquisition professionals and was taught early on about the importance of a firm dedication to your network: understand your candidates and understand the market. If you are searching for a new opportunity within Finance & Accounting, Matt is your guy. Matt is also your guy if you need a partner for Sports Trivia – he is a fiend for DC franchises: Caps, Redskins, and everything in between. 

Tyler Pratt

Tyler Pratt

Associate, Finance and Accounting Search Services

After deployment in

the Middle East, Accounting and Finance search services seem like a walk in the park … on most days, anyway. Tyler spent four years in the US Marines Corps, stationed at bases all around the world. These days his roots are planted in Northern Virginia, and is tackling a whole new set of challenges. He navigates the job market for his candidates, continues his schooling in the evenings, roots for his Redskins, and still manages to get in his two-a-days whenever he can. Bring it on!
