Originally from Vancouver, Washington, Lance came to Portland to attend college at Portland State University. Before Lance became a recruiter, Orlando Williams helped Lance get his first job out of college as a lumber trader. Over the years the two kept in touch, so when Lance asked Orlando about sales opportunities in the Portland Area, Orlando asked Lance to come and work for him instead. As the original Technical Recruiter at Motus, Lance says, “I didn’t know anything about recruiting in technology, but we learned it together– Motus I.T. was born.”
Lance is a competent leader who cares about the people he encounters in this line of work. In his own words, “It’s a great feeling when you are able to help someone get their dream job. Not too many careers allow you to change people’s lives for the better.”
Lance and his wife, Molly, are about to welcome their first child this summer, and they just found out that it’s a girl! Until baby girl Lozano arrives, you can find Lance and Molly working in the garden, or pickling and canning their homegrown vegetables. He is also a huge Portland Craft beer fan, and you just might spot him sitting outside Burnside Brewing sipping a dark beer and people watching.
