We are Thankful

President and CEO, Bill Emerson, announces Denise Tocco, Director of the Administrative Division, is retiring after more than three decades with Emerson Group.  “Denise has been an integral part in the growth of Emerson Group since she started back in 1992.  To say we will miss Denise, her infectious laugh and incredible work ethic, is an understatement.  Our tag line is Recruiting to Culture, and having a team member stay with us for almost 32 years is a wonderful testament to that and her compassion for her job.”

Together, Denise and Emerson Group have experienced tremendous growth and success.  Even through recessions they have persevered and come out stronger than ever. The thousands of candidates and hundreds of companies Denise has helped over the years is truly remarkable!

Bill continued, “I can honestly say I’m humbled and grateful to have worked with Denise all these years and we truly would not be who we are today without her.”

Although Denise will be sorely missed, the Administrative Division, which includes Judey Napoli, Sue Whelan and Loretta Bruno, will continue to serve both candidates and clients in the same honest, friendly and compassionate way as Denise did for 32 years and Emerson has for 52 years.

The Beginning

Denise interviewed with founding owner Annette Emerson, in 1992 when the firm was still a Dunhill Franchise.  As a mother of two young children, Denise wanted to work part time but Annette didn’t have anything that would fit her schedule.   A day later, liking Denise so much, Annette called her back to be their bookkeeper and worked around Denise’s availability.  Denise said, “I have fond memories of working with Annette and Skip Emerson. They were the heart of the company, and I learned so much those first few years.”

Denise quickly moved up to Production Assistant, and after two years she moved on to Service Coordinator before developing into her eventual role of Recruiter, which has been her true passion.  She will miss her work at Emerson, but even more so, she will miss her Emerson Team family.

Denise’s Last Day

Denise’s official last day will be Friday, May 5th.  “It’s bittersweet leaving Emerson,” Denise said. “I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family, grandchildren and traveling, but I will miss the team here, and our wonderful clients and candidates. It’s become generational to me now. I’m getting calls from adult children of the parents I’ve helped place. It’s been a very rewarding career and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
