Co-founder and CEO of HiredMYway.com in Birmingham. HiredMYway.com is a web-based startup that provides a hybrid approach in resume, recruiting, and job board services in the online job search industry. The company utilizes what most closely resembles a dating-service-style model by matching the needs of employers with the appropriate skills of job seekers. The company recently announced funding from Detroit Venture Partners and plans to increase its staff. At 29, Mosher has more than 14 years of experience in strategic management and business startups. In addition to hiredMYway.com, he is the founder and CEO of two successful landscape and maintenance businesses: Mosher & Associates, where he achieved more than $3 million in sales before the age of 25, and Mosher Professional Properties. Mosher is also a founding member of Mitch Albom's Haiti mission, where he is actively involved in the hands-on rebuilding of an orphanage. He also frequently volunteers for Habitat for Humanity and the Detroit Rescue Mission. In 2007 Crain's Detroit Business chose him as one of the "20 in their 20s," and in 2008 Corp! magazine named him an Entrepreneur of Distinction. Mosher received his bachelor's degree in finance from the University of Dayton.
