Experience is critical in understanding not only the front end of a process intended to match a qualified professional with a fitting position inside of a company, but also the long-term understanding of why a particular candidate will flourish and the company will prosper as a result. The founders of CTE Staffing & Recruiting have that experience and the success principles that accompany the experience.

Rick Fossier has served in an Executive role for a national Healthcare services and technology industry for the past 14 years, and before that he held the Vice President of Sales position for a national media company. During this time, Rick had the opportunity to meet with hundreds of Healthcare IT and services organizations, interacting closely with other senior executive teams and IT professionals. As a result, he not only has relationships with a large number of the top health care organizations across the U.S., but he acquired a deep understanding of those traits which company executives and hiring managers are seeking to not simply fill a spot but to drive success forward.

Grace Fossier has served in a leadership role for a national Healthcare company as well as sitting on the Board of Directors of a nationally-ranked sports program for the past decade. The result of Grace’s years of service is a deep understanding of the needs of top-tier organizations and the traits of talented people that will drive the success of their organization if they are appropriately employed in the right role.

Our aim and expertise is understanding what skill sets and personality types will drive the success of our client partners forward, and matching those candidates with companies that will result in the mutual long-term success for both parties in the placement equation.



Thanks, Grace. I simply can’t say enough good things about you and the candidates your sourced for us – you’ll be our go to for searches from here forward!

Jeff Loney – President/CEO, Alveo

Grace- I wanted to take a few minutes and let you know what an amazing job you and your team at CTE have done for Information Insights. At Information Insights finding and retaining great people is one of the most important aspects of our business. In a consulting business, people are the heart of what we do and how we deliver success to our clients so having a recruiting partner like CTE Staffing is vital to our success. The professionalism, effort, and enthusiasm with which your team has worked is amazing. In a very unique, niche market, you have been able to find and provide skilled, experienced candidates that we would never had made contact with. Your results have far exceeded my expectations and the results of over half a dozen other recruiting that we have used in the past. Kudos to you and your team for the tremendous work you do! We are looking forward to more success with working with you in the future.

Bill Crawford – President, Information Insights


I was working as the Chief Development Officer at a competitive company when I was contacted by Rick Fossier. After hearing about the possibilities with the private equity funded company he introduced me to, I took the new position to establish business development initiatives to drive greater growth than I could have accomplished with my previous company. Rick played a significant role in my dedication to join this new enterprise – his background in team sports had taught him how to be a reliable teammate and subsequently a solid coach in every sense of the word as I pursued the new position. He has a “can do” attitude in approaching projects and the tenacity to stay in the game until the desired results are achieved.

I was working for one of the largest entities in America but looking to make a switch to a company where I could take on a leadership position, putting my experience to work for both myself and the company I went to work for. Rick Fossier worked closely with me to gain an introduction into a sales leadership role with a market-leading healthcare company, and the position was a significant move forward in my professional career. Working through the process with Rick was not only a highly professional experience, but it was also enjoyable and informative given his knowledge of both the industry and the specific company I went to work for, and we continue to enjoy a great relationship today, years after I took the role.
