Chad's easy manner and enthusiasm makes it evident why he excels in human resources. Starting his journey with Union Bank seven years ago, Chad has been the president of Zelle - a recruiting and consulting organization developed under the direction of Chad and the marketing team at Union Bank - since its genesis three years ago.
Chad shares being entrepreneurial and liking change spurred his interest in the challenge to build and create HR solutions that would focus on client needs in performance management, and he readily took on the challenge with the swift energy of a gazelle, the company's namesake.

We understand the services Continuum offers are indispensable for human resources, but we also want to promote EAP benefits to employees as a fantastic, life enhancing benefit. We really try to make 'Continuum' a good word and brand our involvement as a positive experience."
