Talener CEO, Michael Dsupin, announced today that Talener has hired Austin Douglas as Regional Sales Director in California.  Douglas, who rejoins Talener after founding Flighter Technology Staffing in 2016, will oversee Talener’s San Francisco and Los Angeles sales operations.  In bringing on Douglas into this Regional Director role, Talener has agreed to acquire Flighter Technology Staffing.

Douglas, a graduate of Colgate University, was hired by Talener in 2011 as an entry-level Relationship Manager.  Douglas began his career with Talener recruiting for technical product and project management professionals. In 2014, Douglas became the Los Angeles Sales Director. He connected with the Los Angeles technology community – creating strong relationships while helping to build out Talener in LA. Douglas oversaw several specialized technology teams including: JavaScript & Mobile, PHP & Python, Java & .NET, Project / Product Management, and DevOps & Infrastructure.

As Regional Sales Director, Douglas will continue to build the Talener brand in California’s two largest Metros by utilizing his years of experience in technology staffing as well as his ability to generate meaningful business relationships. As a veteran of Talener, Austin rejoins the organization with a core understanding of the business and brings outside experience that he can share with Talener.

“I look forward to working with Austin in our Los Angeles and San Francisco offices. His commitment to creating the best opportunities for our clients and candidates is unparalleled,” says Talener SVP of Sales, Justin Cottrell.

“I am excited to rejoin Talener in a role that will be focused on developing the internal staff and growing our customer base on the west coast,” states Douglas. “I’ve spent the first six years of my career at Talener, and it’s great to be home.  Michael Dsupin and Justin Cottrell have extended this opportunity to me, and I can’t wait to help build upon the amazing work that they’ve been doing here in California.”
