    Tom Wirts owns the Express Employment office in Charleston, West Virginia. His goal was, and continues to be, to create the best staffing service in West Virginia. Tom graduated from the University of Dayton with a bachelor’s degree in Management and then continued his education at The Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University where he earned an MBA in Human Resources and Consulting. He is certified as a Certified Staffing Professional (CSP), and a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR).  Tom was also the founding President of the WV Chapter of the American Staffing Association. 

    Tom supports the local community in a variety of ways.  The Express office is proud to support the Fund for the Arts, the West Virginia Symphony, the United Way of Central West Virginia, the Kanawha Charleston Humane Association, the Charleston Sternwheel Regatta, and the Thomas Health Foundation.  The Express office has also sponsored many events through both the South Charleston Chamber of Commerce as well as the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce.  For many years, Express has provided a world-class leadership seminar for business leaders throughout the Charleston area.  Express also participates in food drives for Union Mission and continually raises funds for Children’s Miracle Network.

    Tom’s Express office has been recognized as a Circle of Excellence office for the last nineteen years, including achieving multiple Bronze, Silver, and Gold-level Circle awards and has twice been selected for the ‘Board of Directors’ award.  Tom believes the office’s success is attributable to the Team that works in his office.  Combined, they have over 100 years of experience putting people to work. Since opening in 1999, Express has placed over 14,000 people in jobs. “I truly enjoy working in my hometown of Charleston – it has been a privilege to be part of an organization that helps good people find jobs, as well as helps good companies find qualified employees.”
