Matt Spanke, COO

Matt Spanke serves as Chief Operating Officer for the Staffing Resource Group. With more than 15 years of experience in the recruiting and management fields, Spanke directs business operations focused on clients in niche industries such as the Department of Defense and engineering.

The breadth and depth of Spanke’s career has always been building recruiting companies in the technical services space. Prior to partnering with Todd K. Hall and Britt Massing to create SRG, Spanke founded a technical recruiting company. Under Spanke’s leadership, the company grew from the original Tampa Bay area to 34 states and three countries, as well as saw revenue grow to $11M annually. Spanke was also instrumental in obtaining a Department of Defense Secret Clearance, therefore increasing sales by 18%. Prior to that, Spanke served as a Senior Account Manager at Aerotek, where he developed and managed a brand new division tailored specifically to technical recruiting in Central Florida.

Along with Hall and Massing, Spanke has helped position SRG for continued success, with goals of meeting or exceeding financial and strategic growth objectives. The company currently has offices in five major cities in the southeast and has plans to continue growing. In 2011, The Tampa Bay Business Journal ranked SRG one of the 50 Fastest Growing Companies in Tampa Bay. Their final rank was the 7th fastest growing company with a three year growth of over 280%.

Spanke received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He lives with his wife, two daughters and son in Tampa.
