DeAnne Brooks will join the Depo International family as the Director of Business Development for the Minneapolis, Las Vegas and Houston regional offices, effective October 17, 2016.
As Director of Business Development at Depo International, DeAnne will focus her efforts on maintaining and fostering client relationships, ensuring the organization learns and grows with the needs of clients, as well as play a strategic role in developing new business avenues.
DeAnne brings with her a vast knowledge of the legal industry. Graduating with a paralegal degree from North Hennepin Community College, DeAnne began her career as a Paralegal in insurance defense and workers compensation. It was working in these areas that DeAnne discovered her passion for people. After 11 years working as a Paralegal, and as DeAnne sought out more personal connections, she made a tough decision to move into recruiting. Over the next 12 years, DeAnne would help to place top talent in large and mid-size law firms around the Minneapolis metro area as well as in corporate offices.
DeAnne, having worked for Patricia Carl, (CEO of Depo International) previously at Pat Carl & Associates, views her return as a homecoming: “I love the positive atmosphere of the company and the message Pat is portraying with excellent service, positivity, and appreciation”. While DeAnne admits she will miss aspects of recruiting, she looks forward to the next chapter and: “re-connecting with paralegals, legal secretaries and attorneys I’ve met in the past and hopefully building a brand new kind of business relationship”.
