After graduating college from Texas A&M University, Trey found his home in Executive Search. Working in the industry, he sought to build a brand that recognizes the importance of building partnerships with both clients and candidates to establish trusting and long-lasting relationships. Out of this desire, Trey founded Genesis Resources - where he operates as the President/CEO to this day.

"Building Genesis has been a group effort. I wouldn't be here without the outstanding people I get to work with every day, clients, candidates, and employees alike."

Ryan joined the Genesis team in September 2013, as an Insurance Recruiter after working for Dallas Baptist University's baseball program - a program in which he was a part of as a student athlete. He worked on a myriad of key accounts then became the point-person on executive-level searches, particularly those that involve Underwriting Leadership. His own leadership elevated him to Senior Vice President of Insurance Recruiting and he is also a Partner in the company. He currently oversees much of the Executive Search team and also challenges himself to work on the toughest searches for Genesis' elite clients.

"I love how everybody here is willing to help, but also hungry to learn.There's no hierarchy and it doesn't matter how long you've been here at Genesis or how long you've been in the business. Everybody can learn from everybody and the entire team embraces that."

After working for a few different firms as either operations or recruiting, Yemi married the two roles and joined Genesis in 2013 as the Operations Manager. Her skills in management elevated her to Vice President of Operations in September 2018. Yemi takes on a variety of Operations projects in her new position and has helped Genesis further grow and develop.

"My favorite thing is the family atmosphere at Genesis. Everyone works together, supports each other, and learns from each other. I personally love learning from Trey and helping him grow Genesis to where he wants it to be."
