Our Leadership

Samer Khouli - President and CEO

Back in the days of dial-up internet, Samer started his HR track record with his family owned payrolling business. For Samer there is no limit to the amount of knowledge one can achieve. 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 and Staffing industry, 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.

Personal Quote
"The best is yet to come."

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

Ryan Anning - CFO

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 thousands of workers. It takes a special breed to manage corporate financials, which is why TargetCW’s CFO is so special. With over 15 years of experience, Ryan developed and streamlined our finance and accounting department’s best practices, and because of him, TargetCW has NEVER failed NOR adjusted a financial audit…EVER.

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

Fun Fact
Ryan’s guilty pleasure is collecting Christmas decorations. His goal is to out decorate Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation.

Andy Waggoner - CTO

Originally from potato country, sheltered and very shy, Andy found his transition to San Diego a bit eye-opening. He spent much of his college years learning about “social skills” and playing video games while working toward his degree in Organizational Leadership. Fast forward 15 years and you couldn’t tell he was anything but a chatty So Cal kid. Andy is responsible for designing and creating an operable space for our employees to conduct business. Everything from designing and installing workspaces to managing the expansion of a growing business, Andy is at the helm of TargetCW’s long-term technology vision.

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

Fun Fact
Andy has 5 kids and never turns down a good burger.

Brian Smith - Sr. VP of Business Development

A true entrepreneur creates something out of nothing. To build a staffing enterprise from the concept stage is a feat few have been able to accomplish. Brian Smith joins TargetCW with a wealth of experience placing top level talent for companies in a wide range of industries. As the senior vice president of business development, Brian will help build and improve our staffing department to become a catalyst for connecting quality talent.

Personal Quote
“If you do not invest very much, then defeat does not hurt very much and winning is not very exciting.”

Fun Fact
Brian loves to travel and has been to over 15 countries, including Venice, Italy where he attended a Carnival costume party that was hosted by a friend from Seattle, WA.

Richelle Arnold - VP of Operations

If you’re looking for a leader to build long lasting relationships with clients, then look no further. Richelle has over 25 years of experience connecting clients with top shelf solution care, which is why TargetCW has adopted its philosophy of “Old Fashioned Customer Service.” Richelle has also used her connectivity skills to build our unique culture, centered on family. With her many years of customer service and HR experience, Richelle truly has what it takes to lead human interaction.

Personal Quote
"Enjoy your moments."

Fun Fact
Richelle loves all things social media, bargain shopping at local thrift stores and is an incredible baker (her gooey butter bars are insane). She also has amassed an unbelievable shoe collection with over 50 pair.

Rachel Altman - Director of People Happiness

It’s hard to consider the identity of TargetCW without including Rachel. She began as an HR rep helping in the benefits department before stepping into a role as a recruiter. Since then (over 3 years ago), 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. Her knowledge of industries including: BioTech, Pharmaceuticals, financial services, mortgage, defense, IT etc. has proven beneficial for TargetCW, and for outsourcing jobs to our clients as well. 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.

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

Fun Fact
Rachel 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.

Charlie - Director of Security and Snacks

Charlie is the beloved boxer of TargetCW. She's been here since day one and greets every employee, client and vendor that steps foot into TargetCW. Her happy bounce is only overshadowed by her unstoppable wiggle for treats and affection.

Personal Quote
"Treats first, petting second."

Fun Fact
Charlie thinks she's a lap dog, and her owner Samer treats her like a lap dog.
