President Elect: Ian Weide is a Sr. Business Development Partner with SEEK Careers/Staffing and hold a CSP certification. He studied at Cochise College in the flight program where he obtained his pilot’s license and was finishing up his commercial license when September 11th, 2001 happened. That event turned him in a new direction. After school, he entered the service industry and worked the next ten plus years in restaurants going through each level of management and managing up to 130 people. This gave him great respect for the HR aspect of things as he was hiring, firing, coaching, counseling, and everything in between. After leaving the restaurant industry, Ian started his sales career at Pacific Seafood where he managed teams of merchandisers and a personal book of business of over 25 million. Ian moved his family back to Wisconsin about four years ago from the Seattle area because they wanted to be closer to family. He feels that his experience working for SEEK has made him uniquely suited for this role due to his sales experience and his connections across so many industries in the area. He truly believes that the SHRM community provides many great partnerships, and he would love to be a part of helping them all succeed.
