Dan Coombes
President and Founder

I have served in leadership roles throughout my 30+ year career.  I was privileged and honored to serve as an officer of the Marines for twenty-seven years.  During the last two-thirds of my time in uniform, I served in the Reserves and concurrently, I managed multiple programs for two large business defense contractors.  My assignments offered me the opportunity to live and work in North Carolina, Okinawa, New Orleans, and Virginia. I also completed three combat deployments, including Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm and Operation Enduring Freedom.  

After I retired from the Marine Corps, I moved back to my hometown of Chattanooga, Tennessee, and established my own recruiting firm, Connecting File, LLC.  In that role I am the East Tennessee franchisee for ResourceOne, International. Since 1998, ResourceOne and its recruiters have been leaders in the hospitality, retail, and entertainment recruiting industry.  In addition to assisting hospitality clients. locally and nationwide, Connecting File also provides recruiting services to defense contractors in need of cleared professionals. 

From our Dedicated Recruiters, to Superior Candidates and Access to Clients, we have a variety of services for both sides of the process of filling your staffing needs.
