Steve Giusto

President & CEO

I started my career at Touche Ross which was one of the then Big 8 accounting firms. I had no intention of ever really becoming an accountant, yet I ended up staying long enough to become a partner. Yet during my thirteen years at Deloitte, I never had the same job for more than a year or two. With a group of others, I was a founder of my first entrepreneurial venture, Resources Connection, while at Deloitte. After spinning it out and taking it public, I was most proud of the fact that most of its employees felt it was the best place they’d ever worked. As we build Purposely, my passion is to create that sort of feeling for as many people as possible. Connecting education, the foundation of advancement, with careers, the journey of advancement, will be a game changer. The world is a better place when people feel that they have a purpose in their life.

Aaron Bare

Founder & Chief Innovation Officer

I found myself building a resume for the last 20 years, bouncing from one industry to another, searching for skills. I have been in Investment Banking, Management Consulting, Internet Startups to Public Speaking. In doing so, I learned that I needed to focus on purpose and my passions, that another job or career would not help me find myself. So I started asking the deeper questions and ultimately ended up building a few companies in the career space, now bring it together with Purposely. I'm excited to spend the rest of my life enabling others to find their purpose.
