President, Foundry Recruiter
Foundry Recruiter
Research & Administration

Right after college Greg Borchert worked for five years in technical and management capacities in an operating foundry. Though he hadn’t planned a manufacturing career, he felt at home with the complexity, challenge, work environment and people in the foundry business. In 1977 he was recruited to join a large Chicago-based search and recruiting firm as Foundry Recruiter, progressing to Director of an Industrial Division that recruited for a variety of heavy industries. Ten years later he launched Borchert Associates, returning to a purely foundry recruiting focus.

Linda joined the company full time in 1995, using her skills as a CPA and businesswoman to research and identify prospective candidates, manage an extensive database system, and to handle all business administration.

Colin became a part of the team in 2007, and has applied his own business interests and skills to effectively expanding our recruiting capabilities.
Our committed, professional, hands-on approach has proven effective for companies of all sizes, ranging from divisions of major corporations to small, family owned operations.
