Gary Michael Kaufman


I am living the dream and loving what I do. I have been blessed in many ways; an incredible teenage daughter (I am a single dad), great friends, good health, and the opportunity to help others while running my own business.

Since 1999, I have been involved in recruiting, managing recruiting teams and developing recruiting strategies and processes for a number of companies. From 2005-2012 I was with Office Depot, progressing through a number of roles, lastly as a manager of recruiting for North America field operations. For the next two years I was a member of the recruiting team at KPIT, the premier Oracle consulting organization and platinum partner serving companies that manufacture, design, and distribute products world-wide.

In addition to my corporate career, I created MEGGA, Inc. in 2008 where I have been using my recruiting & HR experience in a number of ways; consulting with individuals in their jobs search (coaching, resume preparation and networking skills), helping companies connect with candidates that fit their skill and cultural needs as a free-lance recruiter and as a recruiting process consultant.

In late 2013, I changed the name of my corporation to ExcelliSearch. I am now the founder and managing director of this specialty recruiting practice on a full-time basis. ExcelliSearch delivers excellence in finding highly qualified candidates for full-time, temporary and project-based needs. Our focus is in the Information Technology area, specifically Oracle E-Business & JD Edwards. With more than 14 years of experience and a wide network, ExcelliSearch is also a valuable partner in a number of other areas. We provide human capital for companies and consulting firms ranging from the Fortune500’s to SMB’s across the USA. I am passionate about finding top talent for great companies and matching people to opportunities!
