Our Story

Serving those who served since 1982.

Paving the Way for Success

Contract Professionals, Inc. was founded by Steve York, a service-disabled Air Force veteran, with the goal of putting fellow military veterans to work. He was helping military veterans find jobs before it became a trend in the USA. He created an award-winning veteran recruitment process, defining and documenting the steps necessary to assist military veterans in finding employment based on their military operation codes.

Our Journey Continues

From that successful beginning, CPI has since moved on to include the growing mobility sector. Our success is driven by our core values and commitment to providing reliable talent solutions for contract engineering companies. At the heart of CPI is a team of dedicated, experienced professionals who continually raise the bar for the staffing industry. From defense and aerospace engineering staffing to cutting-edge mobility industry recruitment, CPI helps job seekers find rewarding opportunities and employers find talented people.

Partnering With Employers and Professionals

As a dedicated partner for employers, our extensive talent pool and defense industry and mobility recruiters provide unmatched staffing solutions to agencies and organizations across diverse sectors. Our goal is to connect talented professionals with employers looking to hire the best in the industry. From contract-based work to full-time roles, our services extend across various branches and sectors.  Our defense industry talent scouts are leaders in identifying talent.

Award-Winning Service

CPI has received multiple awards for our exceptional service to military veterans, including several from the 101 Best and Brightest Place to Work for Committee, Local, Elite and National.
