    Carmen Carpio

    Sales Manager

    Carmen Carpio's amazing 10-year journey with us earned her the title of Sales Manager.  With many talents, she has owned her own business, is a certified paralegal, is a certified massage therapist and is a writer.  Not only is she the enthusiasm, the mentor and the endless supplier of donuts to this office, but she is a valuable member of her community.


    Carmen comes from a loving home where her dad, a retired county official and her mom, who migrated from Spain, encouraged her to pursue her dreams.  Their devotion influenced her into giving every associate a chance to prove themselves, regardless of where they got started in life.  Carmen believes in giving equal opportunity to succeed and that fairness is a human right.  For clients, she goes above and beyond meeting demands and deadlines. If we could enclose all other duties and roles she plays in the office, we would have to write a novel.


    Carmen volunteers and donates to charities, and started her own initiative to make the roads safer in her local community.  She wants to ensure that the future is safe for all community members, especially children.  Her resilience, determination and perseverance make her a force to be reckoned with.

    Cristian Ramirez

    Manager & Employment Specialist

    Cristian Ramirez has been with us since March 2017.  He came in as a Front Office Coordinator and has earned his current position as our Employment Specialist.  His rapid growth through Express is no surprise because the value of hard work and commitment to excellence were imprinted early in his life.


    Coming from a family of immigrants, Cristian worked at a young age alongside his father who was a contractor.  Just like he helped his father build and remodel homes, Cristian knows how to help build a business from the ground up.  It was that determination that earned him a State Award in high school and allowed him to be the first one from his family to attend college.


    Cristian has used other employment agencies to find work, and he understands both the associate's and client's perspectives.  His goal for our associates is to help genuine people find work so that they can provide for themselves and their own families.  His desire for his clients is to find them the talent they need for their businesses to strive.  Cristian is humble, honest, sincere and you would want him batting for your team.  While he is not being a valuable Express employee, he enjoys artwork such as drawing and painting.
