Ken Peters, Principal

Ken Peters co-founded The Connors Group in June, 2001 and has been responsible for building the foundation of this premier IT Staffing Organization that serves clients in the areas of Executive Search, Staff Placements and Consulting Services. Ken has over 23 years experience in Information Technology and IT Recruiting.

Prior to founding The Connors Group, Ken was a partner at Arkay Computer Consultants, which provided AS400 project based solutions, along with Staff Augmentation.

Ken started his career with Liz Claiborne as a Computer Operator in the 1980’s, and via hard work (and some odd shifts) earned an opportunity in the programming department. From there Ken became a solid AS400 RPG programmer, and then embraced the AS400 programming development tool “Synon”. Ken was later promoted to technical manager at Liz Claiborne, overseeing the development of many Retail systems, across numerous departments.

Ken’s IT background gives him a unique prospective to what an employer is looking for in an IT professional, as well as what’s important to a prospective candidate.

“IT professionals are motivated by different things, and are very unique to other industries” states Ken.

Handling the operations side of The Connors Group, Ken is always looking to leverage technology to create a world class infrastructure. Implementing this technology gives Connors a competitive edge, and adds tremendous value to our clients, and candidates.

Ken is a husband and father, and strives to be his best 9-5 and 5-9. He is a huge sports fan (Mets and Giants), and has not missed  NY Giants game in 20 years (Even on his honeymoon) He loves to Ski and Snowboard, and cannot wait to teach his son how to do this someday.

Over the long haul Ken feels an ethical approach and hard work will sustain any organization.
