Our Team

Andrew Taylor


Hi, my name is Andrew Taylor, Principal and Founder of Focus Search LLC.

You can usually find me outside enjoying nature with my wife and kids or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. “Cooking” means me chopping vegetables and being the official taste tester. When I have a bit of free time, I love to play the piano or read a good book.

My passion is people and business. I’m at the intersection of the economy and the people that move it forward every day. It’s inspiring to be a part of many storied organizations that are so integral to our communities – whether a 5th generation lumber products manufacturer, a start-up software provider, or a local non-profit.

I love bringing together clients and candidates. Let’s get connected!

Kristin McBride

Executive Coordinator

Hi, my name is Kristin McBride, Executive Coordinator at Focus Search.

I live in the Santiam Canyon with my husband and two boys. Helping people connect with new opportunities, answering their questions and helping facilitate the entire process is what really drives me. My hope is that I can provide personalized attention to each client and candidate and that they always feel like we took care of them.

I bring over 30 years of experience to Focus Search and helping organize your needs. I have a wealth of knowledge throughout my career spanning many industries including Architecture, Aviation, Health Care and Construction.  I enjoy the hustle and the challenge of meeting both our clients’ requirements and our candidate’s needs. I enjoy meeting new people and learning more about all the industries that Focus Search has introduced to me.

Colden Garro


Hi, my name is Colden Garro and I'm a Recruiter with Focus Search.

I grew up in Oregon and I love living In the PNW. During my weekends here I spend as much time as I can outdoors. From chasing Elk in September to wading in coastal rivers searching for Winter Steelhead, I love taking in all this state has to offer. During the week I spend most of my free time at the gym or catching up on my reading list.

I came on here after graduating from Oregon State with a degree in Education not knowing anything about the world of recruiting, but since I’ve learned so much and have loved getting to connect with people and help them reach their career goals! For me, recruiting is a people-first business and I love being able to help clients fill roles and candidates find roles.

I am passionate about doing my best to help people. Whether you have a specific opportunity in mind or have questions about the job market, I would love to chat. Let’s get connected!
