TableRedChairNexGoal has placed Michael Kordel, former Ohio State University swimmer, as a sales representative with the recently-formed O’Neal Flat Rolled Metals in Cleveland, Ohio.

In January 2012, TAD Metals and Metalwest “combined forces to to bring their customers a greater experience in carbon and non-ferrous flat rolled products” to form O’Neal Flat Rolled Metals. Taking pride in providing their customers expertise, speed, efficiency, and value played into Kordel’s competitive and professional background.

An All-American and All-Ohio swimmer at St. Edward High School, Kordel joined The Ohio State University men’s swimming and diving team. A scholar athlete, he was a Big Ten Conference finalist in the 400-yd freestyle relay and was a U.S. National qualifier in the 100-yd. freestyle event.

After completing his degree in four years, Kordel spent several years working in advertising sales before working as a technical recruiter. Familiar with the process, he entrusted Angela Berardinelli’s experience as a fellow former collegiate athlete and recruiter.

“NexGoal helped me to find a new career path right when I needed it most,” said Kordel. “Their staff prepared me for each interview and gave me the upper hand that helped me to further my professional career with a well-respected and well-known company. I would highly recommend their services to any former athlete looking for a leg up on the competition.”
