Josh Brecheisen

Josh is the Owner/President of Genuine Recruiting. He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently resides in Utah. He pursued an undergraduate in Economics at BYU, where he also was a member of the BYU Men’s Volleyball team. Some consider Josh the Rudy of BYU volleyball but don't expect any movies on that. In his first interview out of college the company’s CEO pegged Josh as a recruiter. That began what has become a fulfilling career in one of the most rewarding industries, helping companies to grow and people to feed their families. Josh has worked as an in-house recruiter, 3rd party recruiter, and even a hybrid of both. In 2011 he helped start a 3rd party recruiting firm for a nation-wide group of marketing companies and then 4 years ago started Genuine Recruiting working with IT companies that have a footprint in Utah.
