WE BELIEVE HAPPY EMPLOYEES CREATES HAPPY CUSTOMERS

Established in 2009, TargetCW has been voted “Best Place to Work in San Diego” for 6 years running.  TargetCW’s culture has played a big role in the success of our company. Offering company retreats, pool parties, happy hours and ping pong, our goal has always been to maintain a small company atmosphere even as we grow and expand. If you visit our corporate headquarters you will see smiles, hear laughs, and watch four-legged friends run around. It is clear that we sincerely care about the happiness of our employees and clients before everything else.

TargetCW is a strength-based organization, investing significant time and money building a team of highly trained and happy employees. Our low turnover rate of less than 5% means we can invest in building and training our workforce instead of replacing them. This strategy has resulted in 40% annual growth and client retention of over 97%. Our track record says it all.

Meet our Leadership Team

Samer Khouli

Samer Khouli - President and CEO

( Ideation, Communication, WOO, Positivity, & Activator )

Before the internet was commonplace, Samer started his business career selling snacks he bought from Price Club to his friends in high school. He then had a small business selling POGS and putting on POG tournaments. For Samer, there is no limit to the amount of knowledge one can achieve and the variety of experiences one can try. When he became frustrated with workers compensation, he went out and got his insurance brokers license, so he could speak directly with carriers, MGA’s, claims reps, etc. With a passion for innovation, desire for efficiency and with over 20 years of experience in the HR, staffing, and technology, Samer has built TargetCW into a state-of-the-art home for the biggest contingent workforce geeks. He loves leadership and wants TargetCW to be an example for other companies in terms of ethics, passion for the task and love for the people.

Quote"The best is yet to come."

Fun FactHe was president of the chess club in high school... don't be jealous.

Alice Parenti

Alice Parenti - Chief Operations Officer

( Arranger, Strategic, Positivity, Responsibility, Individualization )

Alice is a perfect fit for this role bringing an impressive resume of responsibilities and skills from various industries, with the attitude and spirit that fits with TargetCW. Alice’s strong ethics, values, focus, and leadership will help ensure that TargetCW’s culture isn’t forgotten as the company grows.

Alice has a clear, authentic, strategic leadership style that encourages everyone to instantly hop on board. She drives simple yet effective solutions that ensure we deliver memorable service today and are constantly striving to adapt and excel through change. Alice loves people, soccer, dogs and having a lasting positive impact on all those she meets.

Quote“May your choices reflect your hope not your fears.” Nelson Mandela

Fun FactWhen not at TargetCW, Alice is your typical Mom that can be found several days a week at Target in her yoga pants (she has not been to yoga in 5 years).

Ryan Anning

Ryan Anning - Chief Financial Officer

( Achiever, Discipline, Focus, Learner, & Relator)

For a lot of “normal” people, balancing a personal checkbook can be a real struggle. Most would find it incomprehensible to manage a business’ budget, revenue, risk, planning, etc., let alone paychecks for tens of thousands of global workers annually. It takes a special breed to manage corporate financials, which is why TargetCW’s CFO is so stinkin' awesome. With decades of experience yet the youthfulness of a 20-year old, Ryan developed and streamlined our finance and accounting department’s best practices. Ryan competently oversees the finances, accounting, risk and future financial needs of the organization. He provides the team with the data, analytics, and insights to help all the leaders do their jobs effectively and profitably, but always remembering the mission of our organization.

Quote“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to work hard.”

Fun FactRyan’s guilty pleasure is collecting Christmas decorations. His goal is to out decorate Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation. No, but really.

Robyn Ise

Robyn Ise - Chief Technology Officer

(Futuristic, Positivity, Strategic, Achiever, Input)

Robyn joined TargetCW in 2017 as our CTO. She has the amazing ability to navigate the most complex technology issue from a technical to a macro perspective while communicating and leading with clarity, vision and remembering the humanity and joy in people. Security, perfection, teamwork, and excellence are all uncompromising in her philosophy and vision as a CTO. Her broad base of experience from Fortune 100 corporations to small startups gives TargetCW its edge to mobilize while being a strong, compliant, effective technology-driven organization.
Robyn is also a proud wife and mother and enjoys hanging at the beach when she's not at work.

Quote“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." - Dalai Lama

Fun FactAlthough she pretends she is not a nerd, Robyn secretly loves checking out the latest tech gadgets, discussing her favorite Star Trek and Star Wars characters, and the beauty of the Fibonacci sequence. (Nerd alert!)

Dave Bakkeby

Dave Bakkeby - SVP Business Development

( Activator, Competition, Focus, Command, & Learner)

Dave started his career in business development before he was commissioned in the Marine Corps, which eventually brought him to San Diego. Post military, he spent a number of years with a national recruiting firm helping clients to hire transitioning military, establish military talent programs and build Recruiting Process Outsourcing (RPO) programs. At TargetCW, Dave is thrilled to have the opportunity to build a sales team that always puts clients first and understands the importance of delivering on their promises.

Quote“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  - Maya Angelou

Fun FactDave was a college cheerleader and his partner ended up becoming his wife.

Andy Waggoner

Andy Waggoner - VP of Infrastructure and Facilities

( Restorative, Individualization, Developer, Learner, & Analytical )

Originally from Nampa, Idaho and loving his hay day of being a tennis pro, Andy found his transition to San Diego a bit eye-opening. He spent much of his college years learning about crazy California culture and building a strong work ethic while working toward his degree in Organizational Leadership. Fast forward 15 years and you couldn’t tell he was anything but an expert California native, that loves to create places and programs to help people succeed and be effective. Andy is responsible for designing and creating an operable space for our employees to conduct and flourish in business and meeting our business goal. Everything from designing and installing workspaces to managing the expansion of a growing business, Andy is at the helm of TargetCW’s long-term infrastructure plan. Andy has an awesome, fashion-forward wife, a bunch of great kids, a lot of dogs, 2 guinea pigs and loves to spend time old and new friends alike.

Quote“Never before in history has innovation offered promise of so much to so many in so short a time." - Bill Gates

Fun FactAndy has 5 kids and never, ever, turns down a good burger.

Rachel Altman

Rachel Altman - Director of People Happiness

( Ideation, Maximizer, WOO, Positivity, & Strategic )

Rachel began her career with TargetCW on the Human Resources team before stepping into a role as a senior recruiter. Since those early days of TargetCW, our current genetic make-up has been hand-crafted at her desk. An amazing amount of trust and reliability falls on her shoulders as she hires the best of the best and speaks to candidates about the wonderful people, culture, and mission of TargetCW. Her knowledge of industries includes: BioTech, pharmaceuticals, financial services, mortgage, defense and IT which has undoubtedly proven beneficial for TargetCW. Her experience in HR and Staffing is pivotal to her role as Director of People Happiness as she continues to define, refine, and manage our culture. All those accolades aside, Rachel is a genuine, transparent, and mission-driven leader who is also a wonderful mom and wife who can make anyone laugh.

Quote"Don't find fault. Find remedy. Anyone can complain." - Henry Ford

Fun FactRachel wants to write a female version of Lord of the Flies. She tells short stories long and long stories longer. She has an irrational fear of sharks, slipping through pool drains, and is horrible at quoting movies.

Cooper

Cooper - Director of Snacks n' Wiggles

( Positivity, Context, WOO, Harmony, & Belief)

Cooper joined the TargetCW team in October 2016 during a visit to some of our Texas clients. We adopted her at 8 weeks old! She is filling the paws of Charlie who faithfully served TargetCW since day one. Cooper loves everyone but plays hard-to-get on occasion. If she sees a closed door, it must be opened (we actually had to change some of our door knobs) because a meeting without Cooper just isn’t a meeting. You’ll find signs of Cooper's love and everyone’s love of Cooper all across the organization - you see this across much of the marketing and even notice a pup's touch in our employee benefits.

Quote"Ain't no business like show business." - The Fresh Prince

Fun FactCooper considers herself a down to earth “southern bell” from Paris, Texas.

Giving Back - TargetCW

Giving Back

Making a difference is at the heart of what we do at TargetCW. With that being said, each year we pledge to donate a large portion of our profits every quarter to various non-profit organizations such as American Red Cross, San Diego Rescue Mission, CURE, Eastern Pacific Hawksbill Initiative, Children of the Nations, Project Safe House, and many more. Also, TargetCW always encourages our workers to make charitable donations and we support their efforts by matching contributions to all certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Together, we can make a difference!
