ALBERT M. TROWBRIDGE
RECRUITING CONSULTANT PRESIDENT: MATHESON COMPANY SOUTH INC.
HUMAN RESOURCES BUSINESS: 9/71 to current 3/78 - current THE MATHESON COMPANY SOUTH INC.
(Founder and President). Chief duties are Recruiting Consultant in the Packaging and Point of Purchase Industries as well as development of the in house computer system. From 3/78 thru 3/94, was located in Riverwoods IL Office and relocated to the Hendersonville NC Office 3/94.
2/75 - 3/78 UNITED RECRUITERS, INC.: Rosemont IL
Founder and Executive (at least I thought so). First entrance into forming a recruiting firm and all the thrills of learning about CPAs, Lawyers, Lease Agreements, Banks, Federal taxes, FICA and the flow of nonessential paper work becoming essential to stay in business as it were. The company actually grew to 2 offices, Chicago and Detroit, and became on the surface quite successful. To make a long story shorter, turned over my stock to my "partners" and left to form Matheson to have complete control and direction, dedicated to Recruiting Consulting for the Packaging Industry. As a final note, United Recruiters went down 'the tubes' six months later (which rather delighted me at the time).
9/73 - 2/75 INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC: Des Plaines IL
Employee: This was an interesting experience into the variety of people engaged in the business. The company consisted of one owner, a general manager, and me (it later on added and deleted 'staff'). Further, it was stated as a Recruiting Firm.
9/71 - 9/73 SALESWORLD, INC: Rosemont IL
Employee: A real bonafide Employment Agency specialized in 'placing' sales 'applicants'. Two years here was eighteen months too long. I had never been exposed to business techniques and people management equal to this. After my overtly indicating to management and employees the results of my 'investigative research' and other gadfly activities I was explicitly requested to exit.
CHEMICAL INDUSTRY: 6/66 - 9/71
Began as a sales trainee with Dow Chemical Co: Midland MI (66-68), after the "training program" was transferred to Staff Assistant in the Product Management area, Chemicals Group. Six months later transferred to the Production and Inventory Control Group. All experience at the Corporate Offices. Accepted job offer from Allied Chemical to move to Chicago IL offices to become a Field Sales Rep, Midwest Area Multi-State territory. In 1970 went to work for Vulcan Materials - Chemical Division, Oak Brook IL Regional Office covering essentially the same territory as with Allied. Sales and experience basically in the tank car and truck load quantities to distributors and direct large customer spot and bid business. In the sales function did a lot of overnight travel and did the corporate game (but not very well). The Matheson Company South, Inc. Cont'd Albert M. Trowbridge
MUSIC BUSINESS: 1/60 - 6/66
After the Air Force, the next four years were in the Detroit MI area at GAIL AND RICE INC.: Detroit MI downtown area. The company was the largest Midwest booking agency for music and acts sold to private and industrial clients for private functions. Also, I attended a local College and worked nights as an active musician during this time. The last two years, 1964-66 while attending MSU, I taught music at a local studio off campus. Actually, entrance to the music business began in the Air Force as during basic training some power(s) found out I could read and was put in the Lackland AFB Drum and Bugle Corp made up of recruits. As the 4th 'Flight' Corps we distinguished ourselves in setting records as recruits: slowest in base history on obstacle course completion, worst in base history on firing range, worst score in drill (marching), highest written test scores ever for the base.
9/10/55 - 8/7/59 US Air Force
After basic training in Texas, I was stationed in Arizona one year, then balance of service in Okinawa. Job: Musician in Field Bands.
