Justin loves the water, playing guitar and colorful socks!

Kim Roneree

HR Manager

Kim joined the College Hunks family because she was inspired by the Company Culture, Mission, and Values. Being a mom of 3 boys, it was important to her to be a part of an organization that would translate to her family at home. As a born “cheerleader”, yes she was one in high school, Kim brings a youthful energy and an incredible work ethic to the College Hunks Family. She doesn’t just recruit top tier talent for a growing organization, she has adopted 100+ boys and girls to her personal family. When you see Kim in the halls of Brand Central, you can see her smiling and clapping for every great accomplishment for the day! WOOHUNK is not just a saying for her but a mentality.
