Meet James and Vania Matthews

  • James Matthews

    James is the prominent owner of our Express office here in Stafford. Taking ownership back in 2008, he has been able to build and grow this business into a leading provider for the staffing industry. James can be described as driven, compassionate, and truly devoted to helping others. He places a bulk of his attention on guiding and assisting others to reach their goals, a trait exhibited in James' day-to-day efforts.

    James is originally from Los Angeles, California, and moved to Utah in the early 1970's to obtain a degree from the University of Utah. Before joining Express, he was the HR Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office and prior to that, the HR Director of the Office of Inspector General for General Services Administration. He's also spent a majority of his career working for the Department of Air Force, serving as the Chief of Staffing, Classification , and Employee Relations at Aviano Air Base in Italy. Since becoming an owner, his most rewarding part of working for Express is helping people find suitable employment opportunities and solving challenges for clients.

    In his spare time, James is an integral member of Big Brothers and Sisters and the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce. He loves to travel and read books on leadership and self-help and also enjoys being a fitness fanatic; running, bike-riding, and cross-training to stay in great shape. When he's not traveling, reading, or indulging in exercise, James can be found spending quality time with his family and grandchildren.

    Vania Matthews

    Vania, in partnership with James, is the dedicated owner and office manager of our Express office here in Stafford. Since joining James and opening our office in August 2011, she has used her vast experience gained from nursing and health management to help others in need of employment solutions. With the ultimate task of management, Vania focuses heavily on overseeing the day to day functions of Express Stafford and ensuring that payroll is handled properly.

    Vania is a native of Salt Lake City, Utah, but has traveled all over the United States and abroad. She and James share an enthusiastic zest for travel and after residing in Aviano, Italy, for three years, they decided to move to Virginia where they have lived since 1995. Before joining Express, Vania worked as a registered nurse medical underwriter for one of the major health insurance companies in the country. She looks at herself as being a support person and a coach and possesses an innate mindset to work hard and care for others daily.

    In her spare moments, Vania enjoys spending time with her family and grandchildren, working in her garden, biking, and of course, traveling. She anticipates the day when she'll be able to get back to her hobbies of serving in her church as a Sunday school teacher and giving back to the community. We cannot thank Vania enough for her achievements in our office and firmly believe that she will continue to do wonders for Express Stafford!
