Frequent appearances on-air and contributions to print media have led business writers and reporters to dub Michael D. Hayes, owner of Momentum Specialized Staffing, the “jobs expert.” Featured in local and national media, including Phoenix Business Journal, KTAR.com, and Yahoo.com, Hayes is committed to strong, straightforward and frank career advice and finding jobs for his vast clientele.
An Arizona native, he graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and received his Masters in International Marketing from Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management.
He spent 14 years gaining professional experience in the securities industry, advising banks, mutual funds and individuals on various types of investments before determining his experiences could benefit a wide spectrum of employers and (potential) employees. In 2003, Hayes purchased Momentum. At that time, the company’s primary business line focused on recruiting for logistics companies. Since then, he has transformed the company into a successful, full-service boutique staffing provider.
Besides leading Momentum, Hayes is a member of the Executives’ Association of Greater Phoenix (EAGP), 100 Club of Arizona, Men’s Art Council, volunteer instructor at St. Joseph the Worker, Biltmore Toastmasters and the Arizona Trucking Association.
Mike Hayes provides tough, candid comments and advice on how to find jobs and recruit the right people in the new economy. He is a vigorous, energetic speaker for groups, and a strong, thought-provoking source for media.
