About Wendy:

I get business, and I get the challenges that come with it. If you take pride in what you do and you put in an honest day's work, half the battle has already been won.

Wendy Longstreet joined the Goodwin team in the summer of 2021.

She spent more than 30 years in the restaurant/bar industry; several of those years were spent in a sales capacity. She has trained and educated restauranteurs and waitstaff on bourbon and single malt scotch so they could increase sales and provide a five-star experience to their guests. Each restaurant was unique, and so were the trainings that Wendy created and executed for them.

As a liquor representative, Wendy created a program called "Welcome to Philadelphia." When a new restaurant opened in Philadelphia, she gathered owners, managers, bartenders, and waitstaff from different establishments and took them to dinner at the new establishment to show support. Everyone could order what they wanted, but no one was allowed to keep their plate - they would pass plates around to allow everyone to sample different dishes. So many relationships were formed from those experiences, and some still exist to this day!

In between her restaurant years, Wendy was in the sign manufacturing industry. She owned and operated a small sign company, focusing only on local small businesses. Wendy also spent several years as an outside sales representative for a sign manufacturer whose responsibility was to help medium to large business owners market their brand with custom-designed and built outdoor signage—again, creating a customized solution to fit the client's need to help them grow their business.

Wendy has spent her entire life connecting with people and connecting those people to other people who build their own congruent relationships. Watching the circle continue to grow is very rewarding.

Wendy doesn't consider herself to be just an HR recruiter--she looks at what she does on a daily basis and thinks she's more of a relationship maker--some of these business relations actually turn into friendships. Wendy's clients trust her to have their company's best interest at the forefront, and her candidates know she's diligent in introducing them only to the people that will take the best care of them. Wendy's not just looking for clients and candidates--she's looking for people who want to work together with her to build a better future.

Wendy has three fabulous grown children, whom she raised mostly on her own and is very proud of. Away from the office, you will find Wendy in her garage, working on wood projects. She loves being creative and building décor for her home and her friends' homes, especially for the holidays. Living near the beach, you'll find Wendy somewhere along the coastline when the weather allows.
