Director of Talent Acquisition

Describe your family: My Mom and Dad both still live in Toledo, Ohio…born and bred. I have an identical twin brother who I’m very close with. We typically talk 2-3 times a day. I’m actually older by 1 minute, so clearly more awesome. My brother Nick actually just recently became a Dad and he currently is a Firefighter/Paramedic in Toledo.

Who's your hero and why? Richard Branson. He is an Investor and Philanthropist, but also because he is not afraid to take on new challenges. And the fact that he is 66 and still climbing mountains... Rock On!

Tell us about your pets: I have a Golden Doodle named Lola. She is pretty much a Giant Black Bear who goes everywhere with me. She has taken on a new challenge which is watching over my 2-year-old niece, Charlotte.

Tell us about your prized possessions: My passport, a Japanese Flag that my Grandpa brought home from World War II, my Road Bike and all of the pictures of places I’ve traveled.

John Demos
Director of Business Development

Tell us about your pets: Jemma is a black and white terrier mix that is as smart as they come. She is an excellent no leasher until a squirrel, rabbit or skunk shows up. Lou is a big orange calico that rules the neighborhood, Sallie is a tortoise shell that guards the deck and Dixie is a one year old white tiger stripe who lives to pounce anything she can’t' eat....and may eat what she pounces. The furry gang is the heart beat of our house.

Hobbies?  I spend most of my free time writing, recording and performing music (bass guitar) with a local Alt / Indie Rock band, The Magnumb Opus. I was a collegiate soccer player and have played at least once a week for as long as I can remember. In between, I'm into cycling, kick-boxing and anything that has to do with the ocean!

Describe your family: My wife Kelly is my light, inspiration and center. My son Jack attends Dublin Coffman HS. He is an accomplished chamber and orchestra violin player (CMC, CYSO, Coffman Chamber).  My daughter Madeline attends Dublin Karrer MS. She is a piano player and company dancer (ballet, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, modern, team) for the Columbus Dance Arts Academy. It's really impossible for me to be more proud of them.

Tell us about your prized possessions: My most prized possessions are the memories I have created with my family, friends, teammates and band mates. I look back on all the things we have experienced and accomplished together and count myself fortunate. I live for opportunities to create more of them.

 
Michelle Galligan
Managing Director

Who’s your hero and why? My sister. Best mom ever to 3 kids, climbing the corporate ladder as a Social Worker for UC Health, and somehow always has time for me. She’s my best friend in the world.

What’s your favorite part of your job? Getting thank you cards from clients telling me I made their lives easier.

Prized possessions? My very carefully curated group of friends, my family, the cookbook my mom and I created when I was a kid, my dive log, bits and pieces I’ve picked up traveling the world, my Salvador Dali clock.

Do you have a favorite quote that you feel describes you? "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - Calvin Coolidge
