“We’re very excited to start expanding our team in Buffalo and Syracuse,” says Patrick Walsh, CEO and co-founder of EagleHawk. “We are growing rapidly, which means that we are looking to hire key talent to meet a number of operational and strategic goals. We are fortunate to have access to an already deep pool of talented candidates in Upstate and Western New York, and we are confident that the social and lifestyle perks of living in these great areas will be a great recruiting tool for outside candidates looking to relocate here.”
