Craig Boren is a Principal and Co-Founder of iBridge Solutions. He has 25 years of professional service, with 18 years of experience in the IT Staffing Industry. Craig has a Big Six CPA background specializing in Audit and a BS in Accounting from Millikin University. He grew up in a strong farming family which instilled in him the values of hard work, community, and integrity.
Craig is most closely compared to a better version of Rex Ryan. His passion for great defense has motivated his 6th grade football players on the field and in life. Craig has transposed his defensive schemes into his everyday life: successfully rearing three children, building a successful business and persuading people to be the best version of themselves. Craig once convinced a homeless man to follow his dreams, that man is now the Chicago Bulls Mascot. He can single-handedly solve a Rubix-Cube in less than 3 days and is a practicing semi-professional outdoorsman on the weekends.

Most people have 6 degrees of separation, John has only 4. John created the concept for MTV cribs while mowing his lawn. DC Comics has also reached out to John to build a modern day superhero character about him, as more of a self-made Bruce Wayne.

Meg Duba is a Senior Technical Recruiter and has been with iBridge Solutions since 2011. She has over 6 years of Staffing Industry experience focused in St. Louis. She began her recruiting career in accounting and finance, and knew early on that she needed something more exciting. Once she stumbled into IT recruiting, she knew she had found her home. Since she has self-diagnosed, adult-onset ADHD, mixed with severe STS (shiny thing syndrome…SQUIRREL!) she needed a career that was constantly evolving. Meg enjoys doing this work because of the excitement IT professionals have for their skill. That excitement is contagious, and they’re always gracious enough to help her understand.
Not many people know it, but Meg was a Storm Trooper in a film about the Star Wars trilogy. This experience led to a love of fantasy/science fiction. Shortly thereafter, Meg began being consumed with serving the Horde while battling the Alliance as a level 58 Warlock on the second expansion. However, it got to the point where her Felguard was doing most of the work, so she decided a change was needed. Enter the realm of Recruiting, she did, yes!
