SNELLING has been Bay County's only full service employment agency since the early 1970's. Larry and Ruth Burton have been helping the area's leading businesses with their employment needs for well over 20 of those years. Their creed is, "SNELLING doesn't have customers. We have partners that we share success with." So whether you a job seeker or a business looking for their most important asset, a great employee, they urge you to become part of the success of SNELLING STAFFING SERVICES.
Larry has a varied background that has seen him work many different jobs since leaving the University of Alabama with majors in Advertising and Public Relations. And all those different jobs has helped Larry understand all the different types of businesses and their needs that he works with today.
Larry has been the driving force for SNELLING locally for over 20 years and has now turned it over to Ruth to run for the next 20. Larry works with employers to find ways to cut costs in worker's comp insurance and by hiring a more productive workforce.
When he's not busy at SNELLING, Larry is also a professional writer who covers college football for the University of Alabama mostly as it is his first love. Larry is a nationally syndicated writer whose work may be seen all over the internet like CBSSports.com, FoxSports.com, BleacherReport.com and Touchdown Alabama magazine.
He has been married to Ruth for over 23 years and travels the world with her. He enjoys scuba diving, boating and sports. They have one son John who is 22 and a dog that doesn't know he's a dog, Bacardi, a six year old pug.
Ruth Burton is by training, a great artist for both commercial art and painting. She is a graduate of the nation's top art college, Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida, but was persuaded by her husband to help him run SNELLING.
Ruth uses her creativity to help employers find the perfect person to blend in with that company just like an artist uses the right colors and texture to make a fine piece of art.
Ruth works with people to streamline their payroll and accounting functions as well. Since SNELLING is a trusted government partner, Ruth can help your business get in on those contracts as well.
Ruth is an avid traveler and adventurer, loves scuba diving and island hopping. She loves entertaining and traveling with friends.
She and Larry have one son, John, who is 22 and a Master Scuba Dive Instructor and Boat Captain at the Florida Keys Dive Center in Tavinier, Florida. They also have one dog, Bacardi.
