Tim Chapman is the Founder and CEO of TangoAlpha3.  

Under Tim’s leadership, TA3 is the evolution and successor to NorCal Staffing Group which was established in Silicon Valley in 2015.  Created to streamline the talent acquisition process and emphasize the value of the contingent workforce on the individual level, NCSG employed innovative technology solutions that enabled a higher degree of interaction between the candidate/employee and staffing firm resulting in an elevated engagement model, location agnostic deployment process and quicker time to fill periods for clients.  TA3 is a culmination of years of experience in delivering talent acquisition services in three primary strategies:  Traditional Staffing, Managed Services and Recruitment Process Outsourcing.

Tim began his career as a recruiter in 1997 and prior to starting NorCal Staffing Group served as an executive in the talent acquisition industry since 2009.  He has managed teams supporting all functions within the staffing/recruiting industry and led successful programs creating exponential growth and employee satisfaction.

In his spare time, Tim enjoys tennis, golfing, fishing, and spending time with his wife, Mary, and their sons, Jack and Michael in Austin, TX.
