Chief Operating Officer
Tyler Crass, our Chief Operating Officer, has over 10 years of staffing industry experience plus an impressive set of qualifications and achievements. After commuting to NYC for over a year to successfully grow and manage the Wall Street branch of a large national staffing firm, he decided he was ready to stay in one place. Not one to hide his light under a bushel, Tyler researched local firms, picked out the best one, walked in, asked for Debra, told her All StarZ could benefit from his talents and that he wanted to join her team.
Since then, Tyler oversees operations and is the driving force behind All StarZ strategies. He also assists the technology department with assessing and implementing improved processes and new technologies to serve both candidates and clients. He’s well known in the staffing industry for his passion for detail, excellent customer service skills and for getting things done right. In his spare time, Tyler loves camping and off-roading. When out of town friends visit, Tyler takes them to what he considers the coolest thing to do in the city: The Underground Tour of Seattle.
