The CSS ProSearch Story

Great ideas are often born out of other great ideas, and great businesses are often born out of other successful companies. CSS ProSearch is the result of the great ideas and hard work of a core team of people driven to change lives – starting with our founder.

Contemporary Staffing Services (CSS), the parent company of CSS ProSearch was founded in 1994 by Donna Pearson. CSS began as a small business – but it didn’t stay that way for long. Under Donna’s leadership, CSS grew to a $20 million powerhouse in just six short years. As the company continued to grow, the highly successful sales recruiting division became its own entity, CSS ProSearch.

Success Built on Putting People First

To understand the success of CSS, you must understand the passion of our founder. Donna was a remarkable woman, achieving great things in life as a mother, community leader and entrepreneur. Widely respected as one of the most successful and philanthropic businesswomen in the Greater Philadelphia Area, Donna laid the foundation that would allow CSS to grow from a local staffing and recruiting agency to a firm with a national footprint at laser-fast speed. Donna is sorely missed, but her unfailing dedication to hard work, team spirit, impeccable service, honesty and fair play remain the core values of CSS today.

Donna passed away from Acute Myelogenous Leukemia in January 2001 but her memory and legacy live on every day. The CSS team took her lessons to heart and built upon her monumental successes. Donna put her employees and candidates first, rolling out the red carpet and treating everyone with respect. A masterful problem-solver and relationship-builder, she was the heartbeat of the organization and her passion and commitment were contagious.

CSS ProSearch, as a division of Contemporary Staffing, lives and breathes the values of our founder, Donna Pearson. Our business has grown exponentially over the last several years for one simple reason: we put people first. Every member of the ProSearch team mirrors Donna’s values and lessons, and our success is built upon her original vision of helping people and businesses succeed – and having a little fun while we do it.
