Owner | Charles Drake
In 1992, Charles purchased a
franchise from Snelling & Snelling and opened an office in West Des Moines,
Iowa. In 1997, he moved the office within Des Moines feeling that a central
location was more suited to servicing the metro area for Contract Labor and
During his time as a franchisee of Snelling & Snelling Charles was
elected to serve on the National Franchisee Advisory Board, which provided
advice to Snelling and acted as liaison with the franchisees. From this
experience, Charles gained a large number of contacts on a national basis that
he utilizes for advice and information.
In August 2003, Charles purchased a building at 3810 Ingersoll and moved the
staffing firm in January of 2004. In October of 2006 he came to an agreement
with Snelling & Snelling, which allowed him to buy out the franchise
agreement while maintaining the staffing company.
Today, the company is proudly known as Drake Staffing & Search Groups. A
full service staffing firm offering Contract Labor, Trial-To-Hire and Executive
Recruiting. Charles prefers to think of the service his company provides as an
extension of the client businesses being served.
