Kate Mckenzie 

Sr. Recruiting Manager – Team Lead

Mau Cleofe

Recruiting Coordinator

Kate joined Build Staffing as a recruiting coordinator, but as business needs changed, moved into a full-time recruiter for Build’s contract/temp-to-perm client and has since pivoted onto the contingent team where she is now a Senior Recruiting Manager and Build’s Recruiting Team Lead. Having zero recruiting experience when she joined, Kate says she loves the work so much, she wishes she had discovered recruiting much earlier in her career. When she’s not working, you can probably find her on some adventure with her son, Will.


Superpower of choice: teleportation. 

Maureen “Mau” Cleofe has been working for Build as their recruiting coordinator for 6 months now. Mau worked in a staffing agency for 5 years and it made her realize that helping people in their journey to find their dream job is her passion that’s why working for Build now is a dream come true for her. She is also a Mom of two – and having the opportunity given by Build for her to work from home is a blessing. She can now spend a lot of time with her kids while fulfilling her professional goals.  


Superpower of choice: time travel. 

Jordan Casto

Senior Recruiting Manager

Mackenzie Leckey

Executive Assistant

Jordan has 10 years of experience working directly with clients and individuals, ranging from small start-ups to government organizations. She has a proven track record of constantly exceeding quota and loves doing it all with a smile. Jordan earned her Business Economics degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is a beach girl at heart. In her spare time, you can find her reading, trying out any brunch spot, and exploring with her husband and dog, Guinness.

Superpower of choice: eat/drink whatever she wants and still stay in-shape. 

A self-proclaimed organizational connoisseur, Mackenzie is the Executive Assistant to Build’s Founder & CEO. Mackenzie is committed to creating seamless processes, problem solving, and color coding anything she can get her hands on. For Mackenzie, the draw to join Build was the team atmosphere and core values, specifically “Knowledge is Power.” She believes that you can learn a great deal from other people and to have the opportunity to learn and grow in a team environment excites her! When she is not working, you can find her at the beach with her rescue dog, Finley, at the gym lifting weights, or on the couch watching movies with her fiancé.

Alyssa Hinshaw

Recruiting Manager

Kinkaid Grady 

Recruiting Manager

For Alyssa, it was Build’s values and “people first” mentality that ultimately determined her career shift from Full-Service Marketing to full-time Recruiting. Coming from a professional background that required an aptitude for client management and relationship building, Alyssa is extremely excited to continue to help quality businesses grow while also assisting people with finding their dream jobs – the best of both worlds! Outside of work, you have a great chance of catching Alyssa in a SoulCycle class or exploring new dog parks and trails with her husband, Paxton, and their two dogs, Koda and Sage.
