With this award, Mahony will be recognized as one of the top COOs in the Central Florida business community.
“I feel so grateful to be a C Level Award recipient,” Mahony said. “Being acknowledged as a leader in the business industry is an incredible honor. I strive to find new ways to motivate my staff at Kavaliro and will continue to challenge them.”
With more than 14 years of experience in the technical services, engineering, telecommunications, information technology, manufacturing and government contracting industries, Mahony partnered with Mark Moore to establish the Orlando and Charlotte offices of Kavaliro.
As COO, Mahony has pushed Kavaliro to become a major player in the nationwide staffing industry. He believes in focusing not only on results, but incentivizing employees to focus on the tasks and duties that are required on the front end that leads to future success.
Mahony is a big believer in mixing it up with positive reinforcement as well as tough love when needed. It is important for him to understand every member of his staff. He knows some thrive on being challenged and continuously want to know where they are falling short. Others react much better to feedback with more of a positive spin.
Mahony not only educates his employees on how to make money, but also to be responsible with that money. He uses conversation to open up the door where they feel comfortable to approach him for an opinion or advice.
Mahony has previously been honored with many awards during his career. These include, the 2010 Charlotte Mover and Shaker, 2010 Orlando Business Journal Top 10 Businessmen to Watch, 2008 Orlando Business Journal 40 Under 40 award winner, Top Performer awards (for 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004), 2006 Governor’s Entrepreneurship Award in the Mega Category, Three President’s Club awards (in 2001, 1999 and 1998), Top Recruiter of the Southeast Division award in 1999 and Top Salesperson of the Southeast Division award in 1999.Read More...
According to the Labor Department, April was a one-month low with jobless claims falling 27,000 to 365,000 – the most in more than three months.
“I think these numbers prove to provide a hopeful message for tomorrow’s jobs report,” said Kavaliro Managing Partner Bill Peppler. “These numbers are consistent with what Kavaliro is currently seeing in our current client landscape. The numbers for highly skilled and specialized skill sets such as finance and technology continue to have much lower unemployment numbers than the general population.”
Last month the rise in applications for unemployment benefits was a surprise after several months of steady decline. Many were concerned that hiring slowed down and worried that the market was worsening. But, according to economists interviewed by the AP, the spring holidays’ temporary layoffs may have boosted benefit applications.
“Applications are a measure of the pace of layoffs,” according to the Associated Press. “When they fall below 375,000, it generally suggests that hiring will be strong enough to lower the unemployment rate.”

Tuesday former President Bill Clinton published his book “Back to Work”- focusing on his views on how to revitalize the American job market. It makes the case for why government matters and explains the president’s ideas on energy, job creation and financial responsibility, his publisher said on Thursday.
“Back to Work” explains that Americans need to reinstate their competitive drive and instill an ethic that employees and costumers count too.
The day before his book hit shelves, Clinton stopped in our home town Orlando to promote his book. He called Orlando a city of success and boasted of the city’s job growth and sustainability.
“One community in America that is doing great is Orlando, Fla.,” Mr. Clinton said. “It has over 100 computer simulator companies, Disney, Universal, Global Entertainment Arts Video Game division and $5 billion a year coming in from the Defense Department and NASA for more computer simulators. Not to mention the University of Central Florida with 53,000 students that can change the curriculum to train people to do those jobs.”
Clinton continued his book tour all over the country stopping in New York to speak on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart the next day. He again applauded Orlando and its efforts to sustain job growth over the worst economic times since the depression.
Yet many financial analysts continue to use Florida as an example as one of the worst economies in the country. According to Workforce of Central Florida, Orange County’s unemployment rate dropped nearly 12 percent from August of last year. But, here at Kavaliro we are busier than we have been in the last 15 years. We are actually seeing jobs being delayed by a lack of available talent. Perhaps Central Florida is breaking a trend that analysts have insisted on over the past few years.Read More...
Florida residents are anxious. Recent college graduates are woeful. Americans are rallying up.
More than 9 percent of the nation and 10.7 percent of Floridians are unemployed in this double-dip recession, and it feels like it will never end.
While many economists say a bounce back isn’t coming any time soon, we say the country has always come back from hard times. Why would this be any different?
Kavaliro has already seen a progressive rise of project/temporary staffing positions in this last quarter. (We are actually busier than ever!) We believe supporting this type of employment can lead to full-time jobs and overall reduction of the unemployment rate. This is an idea the President and Kavaliro share in common: putting people back to work is of the up most importance.
President Obama’s three-day bus tour through the southern states promoted his jobs plan, and he pledged to veterans and military spouses to put 2,500 of them back to work by 2013.
According to projections released by the White House, $7.52 billion could be spent in Florida and used to save 63,000 jobs ranging from teachers to construction workers through the American Job Plan.
The $447 billion plan also includes payroll tax cuts for 410,000 Florida companies that could cut costs and save revenue.
Teachers, firefighters and police will see $1.7 billion set aside to prevent layoff. The plan allows $1.6 billion to spend on roads introducing 20,500 jobs.
Obama’s plan was killed in the Senate, forcing him to split up the plan into separate initiatives. Paid for by raising taxes on the wealthy, the seven Republican presidential candidates on the stage during the CNN debate in Las Vegas on Tuesday, opposed the plan vivaciously. Republicans have opposed the plan because they say it is too expensive and will not work. Obama says he only plans to increase taxes on people earning $1 million or more annually.
But it’s not just Republicans who are blocking Obama’s plan. Some Senate Democrats instead propose 5.6 percent surtax on annual income of more than $1 million.
President Obama believes that millionaires and billionaires should pay “their fair share” in taxes. He said that billionaires should pay at least as much of their income to the Internal Revenue Service as middle-class taxpayers do.
A survey conducted by the Washington Post says 75 percent of people polled support raising taxes on millionaires, including 57 percent of Republicans.
Democrats continue to focus support for Obama’s jobs plan. But the party’s main drive is to clarify Democrats economic agenda heading into next year’s election.
“The next hot career is here.
Recent college graduates are earning up to $100,000 a year. And the profession shows signs of getting hotter, since graduates are in demand.
Businesses, industry and communications increasingly depend on the Internet, and companies are moving more and more of their operations online. That means they need software to make it all work.
Automobiles, watches, airplanes, and everything from digital thermometers to coffeemakers depend on software. For example, a cell phone, which we know can do much more than place a call, uses up to a million lines of software code for its different applications.
So, with the necessity for companies to have smartphone apps and tablet apps, as well as business software, the engineers and developers who design this stuff are essential. Colleges are ready to train them, but university officials say that high school students are not encouraged to enter the field….
The shorgage of software developers could slow the operation of some businesses.
“We’ve had customers say, ‘We have to increase our (software development) staff or we’re going to miss deadlines,’ ” Bill Peppler, managing partner of Orlando’s Kavaliro Staffing Services, which covers Central Florida, said.
Businesses likely will face a long period of competing for software development talent, and, in the worst scenario, the talent shortage could slow the U.S. economy.
“We could accelerate business development in the country if we had more people in computer science,” Gary Leavens, interim chair in the electrical engineering and computer science departments at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. “Businesses are able to get productive gains from software.”” Click here to read entire article.Read More...

Kavaliro also has made a significant impact in its communities, with their quarterly “Fueling the Community” Food Drives and other community involvements.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this quarter’s “Fueling the Community” Food Drive, it was a great success! Working with dozens of participants in Central Florida, we were able to collect: 884 boxes of Mac & Cheese, 567 individual servings of Mac & Cheese, 262 containers of sauce, 437 boxes of pasta, and 403 miscellaneous items to help our communities most needful families as another school year begins.
Our Charlotte office raised money, which Kavaliro matched, to donate $185 to Eagles Nest Summer Camp to support our troops with nutritional and toiletry items!
