Meet our Staff: Tomas Chavez

tomas-chavezI’ve been a fan of Tomas Chavez for about 8 years now, when he was pretty new at Sequoia Personnel, and I was pretty new in the county. We met as two of the founding officers of the first Humboldt chapter of Business Networking International, or BNI. Well before I came to work here at Sequoia in 2013, I tagged him as one of the county’s up and coming business leaders.

If Sequoia was a car, Tomas would be the engine. He powers and inspires the rest of us. He handles the majority of permanent placements, as well as temporary contract employees in office environments. He works passionately, and tirelessly on behalf of both sets of our clients: the employer looking for the right person and the job-seeker looking for their next, and best, job.

Tomas is involved with various community endeavors. He is a member of the Arcata Sunrise Rotary. Earlier this year, he was named Ambassador of the Year by the Eureka Chamber of Commerce, and he will chair the ambassador group for the coming year.

Tomas grew up in the high desert east of Los Angeles. Like many, he came to Humboldt to study at HSU and decided to stay. Tomas is married to Heidi Chavez. They have a son, Cruz, and live in McKinleyville.
