“Searchforce was founded on an ideology fortified with integrity that will last for many years to come.” – Jared Rogers, President, Searchforce
The success of Searchforce is directly connected to several basic philosophies deeply engrained in the culture of the firm. Those who know the founder and have worked with him readily acknowledge that his ideas and ethics have been responsible for both securing and strengthening the company’s grasp on recruiting services in the logistics industry. These attributes include:
- a belief that hiring exceptional talent is essential to make a company successful
- unique search approaches that differentiate this recruiting firm from the competition
- the ability to anticipate the needs of the marketplace and be alert and agile enough to accommodate them
- a focus on exceeding expectations in the delivery of candidates and hiring solutions
- a willingness to take risks based on careful forethought, sound decision-making, and a confidence to execute as deemed appropriate for both the business and the market, despite the conventional wisdom and thinking of industry peers and competitors
Our accomplishments, credentials, and standards have enabled us to develop a reputation for delivering high quality services. It is what has set us apart from our competitors and has caused many to take notice of our abilities. We at Searchforce are proud of our achievements and continue to set our sights high to provide vision and deliver excellence to our clients.

Shelley has over 20 years’ experience in finding creative ways to get things done, mostly because she is a Texan and grew up with ceaseless admonitions to “get ‘er done.” Aside from big hair and ten-gallon hats, her Texas roots brought forth a penchant for big dreams and led her into sales. While attending Austin Peay State University, she earned her Real Estate license and kicked off two decades of home acquisitions, sales, and rental property endeavors. Marriage brought a welcome partnership and exciting shifts in career focus, culminating in her co-founding and behind-the-scenes administrative and operations contributions at Searchforce. Shelley is the proudly exhausted co-creator of two daughters, now aged fifteen and thirteen. She shares her husband’s interests in furry beasts that meow, and she voraciously consumes audiobooks. For fun, she carefully coaxes her teens to excel and her seeds to sprout under the blazing Arizona sun.
