Certified by the National Minority Supplier Council, WBENC, and the state of New Jersey as an MBE/WBE/SBE, Rueben Cooley Inc. (RCI) is a full-service Staffing & Recruiting company founded on the principles set forth by two gentlemen of the highest caliber and work ethic: Reuben Phillips and Jesse Cooley.
Phillips and Cooley were men of integrity. The one thing they cared for the most was the well-being of those around them, those they met, and those they were going to meet. They were known throughout their communities, work groups, and social circles as fair, respected, and successful businessmen who consistently went out of their way to ensure the success of others.
In the spirit of their meaningful lives and the legacy they left behind, Reuben Cooley Inc. was founded as a constant beacon of hope and hard work. We partner with some of the world’s largest firms to offer career opportunities to those around us, those we meet, and those we look forward to meeting too.
CEO / President
Following in the footsteps of her late grandfathers Reuben Phillips and Jesse Cooley, Larcinia devoted herself to working tirelessly toward helping others build their companies and fulfill their career goals. She knew the best way to do this was by making sure she was the best version of herself possible. So, immediately after obtaining a bachelor’s degree in 1997, she jumped into the workforce to gain as much experience as possible. Her goal was to get the widest view of not only different businesses but of people too. That’s exactly what she did.
None of it was a chore for her either. Every day was a new adventure. If you ask her, Larcinia will go on forever about the privilege it was to work in the telecommunications, engineering, social services, and government industries. Now, her intent is singular: To utilize her experience and grow Reuben Cooley Inc. into a source of assistance for its clients to fill their important positions and an avenue for its consultants to find their dream jobs.
When she’s not helping others—Which is very rare—she is somewhere outdoors. Nothing refocuses and centers Larcinia more than walking near rivers, reading a vast variety of books, and meditating.
Chief Growth Officer
Before joining the Reuben Cooley team in 2019 as Chief Growth Officer, Maurice spent more than twenty years in the telecommunications and construction industries, where he faithfully dedicated both time and effort to his projects to manage contracts and other staff augmentation needs. It was clear he put his Bachelor of Science in Marketing to good use. And it’s clear he still does with us today.
As our CGO, he has dedicated that same energy and enthusiasm to ensure we are not only over-exceeding our current clients’ needs but also planning and implementing strategies for the organic growth of our own company. But don’t let this other-worldly work ethic frighten you.
Maurice is one of the most down-to-earth individuals you’ll ever meet. Just like he stops at nothing to get the job done, he never stops talking about his long walks with the family dog or what social event he went to last weekend with old family and friends.
I have over 12 years of experience as a staffing professional, working in Healthcare, Banking Engineering and IT industry and working with direct and MSP/VMS based clients. Currently working as Recruitment Head with Reuben Cooley Inc since 2021. Possess excellent knowledge of recruiting and hiring processes including sourcing, interviewing, reference checking, tracking, salary negotiations, and closing. Holds a Bachelor of Science degree major in Information Technology.
I enjoy going on hikes, and planning for the next adventure with family and friends.
