Recruiting & Business Development
Brett VonKrakau | Senior Talent Acquisition Manager
Brett is a powerhouse for the Dynamic Team with over 20 years of industry experience. The loyalty he shows to his team, and anyone he works with, have made him irreplaceable. He has been by the Presidents' side since the beginning, and has made his mark here in countless ways. His intensity and deep-rooted knowledge have helped drive the company's growth and he has played an instrumental role in the opening of new offices from Seattle to Southern California. Brett's secret weapon is his consistency, proving time and again his unwavering commitment to his clients on both sides of the search, regardless of the search level.
He differentiates himself by simply picking up the phone and having real dialogue, which today seems less than common. Connecting intentionally with his clients, colleagues and customers help Brett quickly uncover skills and personality traits needed for specific opportunities like no one else. Combine that with his ability to multitask and you have the reason his shoulder is tapped on to handle many large, and fast-moving projects. He is trusted by talented associates who return to him time after time to help them find their dream opportunities, as well as by the companies he partners with to help fill crucial roles and large projects across multiple industries nationwide. He understands the transformative power of his work, which fuels his diligence, investment, and dedication.
Brett is a trusted professional with a passion for people, but that's not all there is to him. When he's not crushing it in the staffing and recruiting world, he enjoys reading and studying history. On the weekends you'll find him listening to music, training, and spending time with his family, proving that even the busiest and most successful people make time for what matters most!
Eddie Juarez | Operations Recruitment Manager
Eddie is a true force to be reckoned with when it comes to search. His ability to quickly grasp new concepts and emerging industries is nothing short of remarkable. Thanks to his bird-dog “never give up” mindset, he's able to find solid matches in record time, shattering the mold of a typical recruiter in countless ways. Perhaps most compellingly, Eddie's flexibility and adaptability are simply unparalleled. Whether he's assessing skill sets for a senior level accounting and finance search or outlining requirements for marketing a construction estimator or project manager role, he shifts gears with ease. It's no surprise that these qualities, combined with his drive, proactive learning style, and interest in taking on more responsibility, have earned him a promotion from Talent Acquisitions Specialist to Operations Recruitment Manager at Dynamic.
Eddie's winning mindset and versatility extend beyond the workplace. As a former two-sport athlete at Sterling College, he understands the importance of teamwork and bringing out the best in everyone. He even made it all the way to the NFL Combine as a kicker! Eddie's experience on successful sports teams aids him in finding candidates who not only have the right skill set for the job, but who can also enhance the overall team dynamic.
And that's not all: Eddie also holds a master's degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Antelope Valley, where he honed his skills in tracking down information and asking the right questions. These invaluable abilities enable him to conduct successful searches and interviews with ease. When he's not busy making waves in the staffing industry, Eddie can be found playing softball, coaching, hiking, or updating his home with his girlfriend and their two adorable dogs, Winston and Toasty.
Aileen Lansang | Senior Talent Acquisition Manager
Aileen has an uncanny ability to connect with people–perhaps it is because she’s never met a stranger, and she’s unafraid to open up first! With more than 20 years combined expertise in Recruitment, Management, and Human Resources she is a true leader who has honed her skills in identifying, attracting, and retaining top talent for organizations across various industries. Although she recently just joined the team in early 2023, our leadership team has known her for almost 20 years. In fact, we got to know her because she was the hiring manager for a search we were conducting. There is no doubt that we are lucky that she knows both sides of this business firsthand and is already making a positive and dynamic impression on our customers, internal team, and the talented professionals that she represents.
When asked which celebrity she would be, Aileen answered TV personality and Michelin Rated Chef Éric Ripert. As it turns out, they have a lot in common! While Éric uses his culinary techniques to whip up 5-star meals, pairing high quality, unique and complementary ingredients for the most exquisite results, Aileen selectively pairs unique personalities, experience, skills and goals to create 5-star professional matches for both companies hiring and talented people seeking a next opportunity.
Having been raised in San Francisco, Aileen was immersed in a rich cultural heritage that she holds very dear. It’s no wonder to us why she can connect with just about anyone–she was shaped by the diverse people in the melting pot that is affectionately called “The City.” Raised by Filipino-American parents who spoke to her in Tagalog, she can read and understand Tagalog–but the biggest mystery to Aileen is why she cannot speak it! Her ability to actively listen, rapidly adjust to change, as well as build and maintain strong relationships that grow into incredible, long term partnerships, are some of her greatest strengths! She is a rock-solid, highly trusted recruiter and a natural fit on our Dynamic team!

You would think she is a veteran of our team the way she navigates planning meetings and keeping everything on her radar–and she’s just getting started.
In her role at Dynamic, Sidney takes charge of managing job boards, branding positions, running our social media accounts, writing our blog, and finding innovative marketing opportunities to expand our reach and grow our audience. Her data-driven mindset and sharp analytical skills enable her to identify key insights that drive strategy and inform decision-making.

Miranda Romo | Project Coordinator
Miranda, a talented and ambitious future 2024 graduate from the University of Arizona, first joined us as a summer intern. Initially, we were impressed by her major in Psychological Science and expected her to help with updates and QA on our internal CRM. However, Miranda's incredible skills in copywriting and project management quickly became apparent, and she has been able to drive our website and other projects to completion.
Born and raised between California and Missouri, Miranda is a true competitor. She was a varsity athlete in three sports! Her dedication and exceptional organizational skills also shone through her decade-long experience working at her family's Christmas tree lot. Miranda's ability to balance work, school, and extracurricular activities was further highlighted by her successful tenure on the Executive Board for Alpha Delta Pi, an international sorority within the National Panhellenic Conference, where she manages membership for over 375 college students.
Miranda's unique ability to help corral our fearless leader and company founder with ease kept us all laughing and on our toes. Her tenacity, drive, and organizational skills are truly remarkable, making her an invaluable member of our team. It was unanimously agreed that one summer was not enough, and we are thrilled to have Miranda continue running special projects remotely.
When not managing projects or sorority members, Miranda enjoys cycling classes with friends, shopping, and working out. With Miranda on our team, we know that the sky's the limit, and we can't wait to see all that she will accomplish.
