Gary Michael Kaufman


I am living the dream and loving what I do. I have been blessed in many ways; I am a single Dad to an an incredible daughter who is an Airman in the US Air force, 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 15 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!
