Judy Chudars, President

Judy Chudars, PresidentJudy worked in the staffing industry for 17 years in major markets in cities like New York, Boston, Denver, and Washington, DC before starting CityStaff in 1997. She has fulfilled various roles within staffing, but her favorite by far was that of Staffing Associate, where she was directly involved in the service of both clients and candidates.

She is dedicated to making sure candidates and clients know that the CityStaff team takes the time to understand who they are and what they need. She created CityStaff to improve the experience of making a hire, or getting a job. "We do business in a special way. The way clients and candidates want it to be done." Controlling this unique environment which links talented candidates with terrific opportunities gives her tremendous satisfaction.

Originally from Trumbull, Connecticut, Judy received her bachelor's degree in Biology from Providence College. That career in medicine just never took off! Judy lives in Virginia and is an enthusiastic patron of the arts, enjoying performances in music, theater and galleries. She has a keen eye for design, as evidenced in the CityStaff offices. If Judy is not working, or decorating her home, she can probably be found in her other passion - shopping!

Judy is very active in the community and is a board member of the National Coalition of Cancer Survivorship, a member of the Society of Human Resources Management, the Washington, DC Board of Trade and GWSAE. Judy successfully completed the American Staffing Association’s Employment Law Accreditation course and is a Certified Staffing Professional.
