[su_quote]As an entrepreneur, a true one, we are supposed to fail and fail and fail again. And apparently it is a good thing to let the world know that I do so. Guess what, I don’t have the answers and I fail miserably on a daily basis but I keep going. I work harder than anyone and I love people. I love innovators, start-ups, people, achievers, brilliance, passion and ideas. I love love love what I do. I believe I will do what it takes to get the job done and connect people to people , even when I don’t benefit from it. I fall short everyday but I won’t give up trying and I will give you every ounce of me to try to make your company the best or help you advance your career. Building culture is my main concern along with skill set. I am real and human. You will get this notion once you have a conversation with me. I have been told time and time again that I am different from other recruiters. We all have a mission in life. I believe we are in this life together so let’s make it happen and do the best we can to achieve all of our goals.[/su_quote] Brooke Dunwell

Brooke started Carbon Three in 2008. She was encouraged to do so by clients and candidates. Prior to recruiting, Brooke built sales teams as a Sales Manager and was a Corporate Account Executive working with enterprise accounts in the technology industry. Before founding Carbon Three, Brooke worked as a Practice Manager building and managing the IT and Engineering Divisions at Miller Resource Group (a recruiting firm).

I have been most impressed with Carbon Three’s ability to understand and quickly identify/match the needs of clients and candidates.  They will go to market to serve, bringing value to all parties. They’ll minimize your search time & maximize your results!

Carbon Three has been an excellent partner and has provided Highwinds with many qualified candidates matching our requirements. Carbon Three’s recruitment service is unmatched in the industry and we will continue to rely upon them as we grow our business.

Steve Miller

Founder and CEO, Highwinds Network Group, Inc.

What’s great about Carbon Three is that they take the time to understand our business and never comprise quality for quantity. But at the end of the day, what I value most about our partnership with Carbon Three is that they are always focused on helping us achieve our business goals.


Jeff Brown

Vice President of Client Services, PerfectServe, Inc.

Like many industries, we’ve found that in our space the traditional metrics don’t always identify the best candidates. Carbon Three works with us closely to understand our particular requirements, culture, position in the marketplace, and differentiators so that they can match us to the right people, not just resumes.

Carbon Three is certified as a women’s business enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s largest third-party certifier of the businesses owned and operated by women in the U.S.
