Systems Integrator VEAPS, Inc. Launches New Division and Adds Recruiting Executive Shawn Petty

VEAPS, Inc., an Indiana-based systems integrator, is pleased to announce the launch of VEAPS Technical Staffing and the hire of recruiting executive Shawn Petty. For nearly a decade, VEAPS has been collaborating with life science, food and beverage, and automotive clients on industrial automation and validation projects. With the groundbreaking addition of recruitment services VEAPS will connect manufacturers with Engineering, Engineering Support and Information Technology professionals to process control, factory automation and software development jobs throughout the Midwest.

“As we continue to develop processes that enhance the overall experience of our manufacturing clients, adding VEAPS Technical Staffing was a natural fit,” said Brad VanPelt, president and founder of VEAPS, Inc. “We are excited to have Shawn join the VEAPS’ team. His proven track record and unique methodology of identifying, attracting and placing quality engineering talent will be a great asset to our company and clients for years to come.”

Petty, a goal-driven recruiting professional, is a graduate of Purdue University. He brings over five years of corporate staffing experience and employs a unique data mining methodology with a focus on human connection. In his role with VEAPS, Petty will work closely with clients to grow their businesses through the placement of ideal IT and engineering candidates for direct hire or contract staffing.

VEAPS Technical Staffing employs a modern approach to the recruitment and hiring process with a focus on quickly and efficiently extracting key data from a variety of sources, including social media outlets and professional networking sites. To identify quality candidates, VEAPS also employs the use of digital technology which aids in finding candidates who may not be actively searching for a new role.

“Finding new talent is huge for today’s organizations. They can’t go about it the same way they have been for the past 20 years,” said Petty. “VEAPS Technical Staffing’s unique approach expands their talent pool, fills a void and changes the market. Additionally, it makes a tremendous difference for Indiana in keeping and bringing talent back in to the state.”
