    After a 30 and 15 year career at a large local corporation, Jerry and Jean Phelps took the leap of faith and opened the doors to the Valparaiso Express Employment Professionals office in 1997. While Jerry actively recruited top talent, Jean hit the pavement knocking on the doors of local businesses offering best in class staffing services and solutions. For 20 straight years, the NWI Express Team has built and maintained an award winning office committed to helping local families and businesses find success and hope. We are proud to be serving the hard working Northwest Indiana community and look forward to continuing to provide a pathway to local career opportunities!
