    Renee Carson


    Aloha, I am Renee Carson, and I am the proud Owner of the Pueblo and Cañon City offices.  I started my career with Express in 1988 as a temp, then soon after was hired as an internal staff member where eventually I found myself with the amazing opportunity to become partner, then majority owner.  The key to my business success has been an attitude of servitude.  I surround myself with the smartest and most giving people, this is a central component of my life.  I am well known for my positive outlook, helpful nature and love of Pueblo.

    Since I believe that if you do the right thing, good things happen I have had many accomplishments that bring me pride, I have volunteered with numerous organizations throughout the years, including the Latino and Greater Pueblo Chambers of commerce, Goodwill, Pueblo Community College Foundation and Colorado State University-Pueblo Career advisory board.  In 2019 I was inducted into the Pueblo Hall of Fame.

    Derrick Martinez


    For those of you who may not know me,  I am Derrick Martinez and I am the Branch Manager and Franchise Partner for the Pueblo/Cañon City locations.  I grew up in the business but started my official career with Express in 2005 where I worked my way up from the front desk, recruiting desk, outside sales and management.  I am proud to share that I successfully executed several temporary assignments and completed one temp to hire opportunity prior to working inside the office.  Anyone who works with me may first share that I am the guy with the contagious laugh, but so you understand I truly love what I do and the team that I work with.

    I have had the pleasure of serving on many boards throughout the community, presently I am on the board for the Pueblo Chamber and Colorado State University of Pueblo School of Business Advisory.  When I am not in the office or on the golf course, I can be found spending time with my beautiful wife and four daughters… I know... four daughters!  All kidding aside, I enjoy helping people and I know that Express is the best resource available for our community.

I am a straight shooter… a sure bet.  I encourage anyone searching for a good job or a great employee to put our team to the test!
