Reliance One, Inc. Supplier of the Year
James “Jim” Beath
Chairman & Co-Founder
Reliance One, Inc.
James “Jim” Beath has been in the staffing industry since 1995. Starting off as a recruiter, Jim
continued to work hard and persevere to bigger and better positions, giving him an in-depth understanding of how the staffing world works as well as what it takes to make it in the industry. A true entrepreneur, his dream was to own his own company and he made it a reality when he cofounded Reliance One, Inc. in December of 1998. Rather than following the same format his previous employers used, Jim created a niche in the market by placing his company’s focus on the clients’ needs. This approach has proved to be successful and has produced many long-standing relationships and partnerships, resulting in continued growth at Reliance One.
As Reliance One continues to expand, Jim puts a lot of emphasis on mentoring others to help them
achieve their professional goals. He has a “whatever it takes” attitude and encourages his employees to
adopt that mentality as well. Jim is very passionate about the opportunities at Reliance One and fosters a very competitive atmosphere, which encourages the initiative and desire to succeed.
In his spare time, Jim enjoys spending time with family and friends, especially while vacationing. He is also an avid golfer and sports enthusiast and attends football games regularly.
