Pete Boothby joined Peters Personnel in 2016 and brings with him valuable business acumen having grown up within the framework of a family business and through 15+ years of banking and financial services experience. Most recently as a leader with TS Banking Group, Pete played a significant role in the development of a hiring methodology that has supported that company’s growth from 25 employees to 175+ over the past ten years. He believes the key to talent placement success is providing the employer and employee with the tools and counsel necessary to identify and match qualified skills with a passion for the work. Pete has held board and leadership positions within several organizations including the American Red Cross and Rotary Club of Council Bluffs. In addition he has been an active volunteer within Underwood, Iowa’s athletic programs having coached high school baseball as well as youth baseball, basketball and football.


Vanessa Keenan, the newest addition to the Peters Personnel staff, just joined in 2017. Vanessa’s interest in recruiting was sparked during her undergraduate career at the University of Northern Iowa where she helped the Office of Admissions recruit prospective students through calling campaigns, social media platforms, campus tours and by mailing personalized letters/post cards. Upon graduating from UNI in 2013, Vanessa taught Talented and Gifted students in Kindergarten through eighth grade before leaving education to pursue a career in banking and mortgage lending. The knowledge and skills Vanessa has gained from her past roles and her passion for helping others has helped her to assume the role as the Recruitment Coordinator for Peters Personnel.
