Bonney Staffing Center is pleased to announce two new additions to our team of professionals! As Branch Managers working within their local Maine and New Hampshire communities, the new members of the Bonney team will lend their expertise in bringing job seekers and employers together. They will also help maintain the high standards of strong leadership that Bonney is known for. Welcome!
Kelly Collins, Branch Manager, Portsmouth, New Hampshire
Kelly Collins has joined the Portsmouth, New Hampshire Office of Bonney Staffing Center as Branch Manager.
Originally from Auburn, Maine, Collins spent four years on active duty in the US Army; 2 years stateside and 2 years in Panama, Central America.
Upon returning to Maine after the Army, Collins moved to Portland and helped launch the The Portland Phoenix arts and entertainment newspaper. She has worked for the mortgage company Beneficial HSBC, and has held positions in sales, sales management, and training for major media corporations. Collins has over 20 years of sales experience in areas of advertising, mortgage and finance, banking, multimedia, and SEO/SEM.
On a lighter note, when Collins was in the Army, she began a side business as a DJ, working in dance clubs and on the radio. Following her military service, she continued to DJ weddings for about 10 years before retiring her microphone in 2005.
Collins said her journey with Bonney began in August when she visited the Biddeford Office for an interview. A few weeks later, she began what she calls her dream job with BONNEY in Portsmouth. “I feel like I have become a member of a wonderful family and am looking forward to a bright future!” she said.
Westley Tucker, Branch Manager, Biddeford, Maine
Westley Tucker has joined the Biddeford, Maine Office of Bonney Staffing Center as Branch Manager.
Tucker grew up in Portland, Maine where he attended school and became interested in business and technology. “Specifically intriguing to me were the challenges that organizations face to remain competitive and profitable, especially in today’s fast-paced, ever-evolving global theater,” he said. This passion for business prompted him to attend the University of Maine, Orono where he completed a B.A. in Business Management.
Following graduation, Tucker worked at Hertz in Portland, where he worked his way up to Operations Manager. He became interested in exploring work at a smaller company, and was attracted to Bonney because of its positive culture. “The staffing industry is, without question, unique, and the people at BONNEY Staffing are so full of passion and pride for what they do. It is clearly represented in their work and their care for both the employee and the client,” said Tucker. He praised the wonderful team at the Biddeford Office where he now serves as Manager and said he looks forward to the exciting opportunities ahead.
Tucker was married this June, and he and his wife live in Portland.
