Jody Moore

Founding Partner

The son of a US Naval Officer and the oldest of six, Jody traveled extensively across the U.S. and lived overseas in Puerto Rico for most of his teenage years. Jody Moore was an All-American Swimmer and graduated from the Hill School in Pennsylvania and later from Tulane University on an athletic scholarship. After partnering with Peer Snoep in 1998, they created MSI Recruiting. Since that time, the business has expanded from a Permanent Placement Agency specializing in Accounting and Financial Placement to offering Consulting, Temporary, and Temp-to-Perm services in the disciplines of Human Resources, Marketing, Sales, Operations and IT.


Peer Snoep

Founding Partner

Born and raised in South Africa, Peer completed his education in the US after his love of travel took him abroad to finish his final semester in England. In 1998, he partnered with Jody Moore to form MSI Recruiting, after a successful career with an international recruiting firm.

Peer’s responsibilities include the day-to-day business operations of MSI, including strategic planning, budgeting, and business development.


Kellen Smith

Managing Partner

Now, more than a decade into his recruiting career, Kellen executes the role of Managing Partner for both MSI Recruiting and MSI Blue. Kellen’s background in business development and his degree in Communications have set him up well to succeed in this role.

Kellen is originally from NJ and was an Academic All American in soccer at Richard Stockton University. Asked the number one thing that makes someone successful in recruiting, Kellen’s response is, “the ability to manage someone’s expectations effectively.”


Success Stories

I had nothing but a rewarding and incredible experience working with Danielle, and with her expertise, perseverance and coaching I was able to hone my interviewing skills to perfection and land the position I have been looking forward to the most.

It's people like Danielle who really make companies like yours shine, her communication skills are top notch. She didn’t leave any suspense and she put her all in to get me hired, and didn’t disappoint.

I am sure you know what a wonderful employee she is and how far above and beyond she goes to help, but I definitely wanted to share my experience with you.

Thank you MSI Recruiting and especially Danielle for helping to make this happen, my family and I are extremely grateful.

Devin Giddens, Spare Parts Account Assistant, ALMACO Group

I have worked with recruiting agencies all my professional career. I can honestly say, working with MSI recruiting has been the most rewarding experience yet. I worked with Christina and Kellen and shortly after, I was hired at an awesome job. Their professional and friendly demeanor made the process as pleasant of an experience as possible.They helped me not only with the initial contact with my new employer, but they were with me every step on the way.  Constantly following up and offering KNOWLEDGEABLE suggestions on how to improve.  They gave me positive and negative feedback when needed and helped me assess my qualifications and skills better than any other recruiting firm has. It truly felt as though they were a part of team Nicole. I highly recommend this firm.
Nicole Naylor, Senior Staff Accountant

I want to thank Stefani for all she did for me earlier this year in guiding me and helping place me at my current job. Working at MSI's client's company these past nine months has allowed me to step up to the plate and learn so much; it has truly been life-changing. I am enjoying working for a company that genuinely cares for their employees and love working with a group of fun and pleasant people. I have found my little niche here and fit right in.

Amanda Rivera, Graphic Designer

I had the most positive experience working with Alan!  In a matter of days he presented my data to my future employer, and got me an assignment where I could demonstrate my best qualities and get the best compensation available. Alan is a good listener who has excellent communication skills. He has the ability to frankly communicate with candidates without being authoritative. I definitely would recommend Alan to the both, candidates and employers.

Tatiana Haase, Accounts Receivable Clerk

I was contacted by Kellen in 2012 for a job opportunity. He called me with a job offer that matched my resume, and placed me in my current job, which turned into a career. I have been at that same job for 6 years now all thanks to Kellen and his knowledge in job placement. He is easy to work with and always keeps you up to date with every step. He also polishes you so that you are ready to meet your future career.

Dania Martinez, Customer Account Manager


An employee of ours gave her notice right before our busy season. She was with us for six years and had extensive experience. I reached out to Alan Forbes at MSI, the following day. Alan asked questions, and listened carefully to what we needed. Within two days, he came up with two very qualified candidates. We chose one, and were never sorry about our decision.

She is a good fit for our company, and is enjoying her job. I commend MSI for finding such dedicated professional employees. MSI reacts very quickly and achieves great results.

Richard Annello, Director Credit and Collections

Unlike many recruiters we’ve used, MSI really digs in to find and pre-screen the best candidates. They don’t just rely on job boards, but instead use their significant network to bring top candidates to the process.

We’ve had great success with MSI, and have found that their candidates have become some of our most valued and long-serving employees.

The MSI team really digs in to understand the position for which they’re recruiting, as well as the company and its culture, to make sure there is the best fit between their candidates and the positions they’re filling.
MSI is always my first call when recruiting for a new position!

Christopher Leonard, President

MSI has been very successful helping us recruit hard to find, very specific skill-set finance/accounting professionals.  It is also a pleasure working with Jody and team…they are always professional and responsive.

Matt Beekhuizen, Chief Pricing Officer

MSI Recruiting found us our Controller, who is probably the best employee that we ever hired. Their service and follow up to see the deal through was fantastic. She was a person who was going to be in high demand and not only did they find the right person, but they sold her on the value of our company over other opportunities that she had. I am not sure that if we have found
her through other means whether we “closed the deal” as well as MSI did.

Mark McCormick, President

It is with great pleasure that I endorse the services of MSI Recruiting. I have worked with MSI as both a candidate as well as a customer for over 5 years and they are truly leaders in the recruitment industry. MSI Recruiting has Recruiters who focus on relationship building. Whether it is staying in contact with a high potential candidate until the right client comes along, or maintaining client relations to fully understand their culture and real needs, they have developed a formula that ensures consistent and seamless customer service. MSI’s approach to working with clients and the candidates they refer is impeccable. I have seen how they vet candidates fully through in-depth interviews before presenting them to a customer. They will not move a candidate through the process that they don’t firmly believe in. At the same time, they search the labor market to find unique candidates that are hard to source. As a customer, we have been hard pressed to turn down a candidate sent to us by MSI. When we have decided to do our own sourcing without any luck, MSi has been there to support us and to save the day.

If you are looking for an agency recruiter that will take the headache out of sourcing the right candidate, look no further than MSI Recruiting.

Mauricio Martinez, Head of HR

With our significant growth in the past few years, MSI has become an integral part of our HR staffing team and I feel as if they are an extension of our organization. They consistently provide us with quality candidates in a number of roles whether permanent or temp to hire. They work hard to find a solution to our needs, no matter how unique our requirement is. I have worked with recruiters in the past that would inundate us with candidates that did not meet our requirements, MSI is different.
