New Tennessee Director of Client Relations


Liz Pitmon, Dir. of Client RelationsPriority Staffing Group’s Tennessee office welcomed a new Director of Client Relations, Liz Pitmon, last week. She has come on board to help manage client relationships as well as create new ones in the community for our business.

Liz grew up in Dickson, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville. She studied Elementary Education at Austin Peay State University. While in school, she worked as a Relationship Manager in the financial services industry and discovered her love for working with people. That took her career away from teaching and into brand marketing in the automotive industry for 10 years, followed by project management in the print industry for 12 years. After some time in operations management, she came to Priority Staffing Group for a job with more client focus. Liz loves helping others, which will make her an excellent Director of Client Relations for our team.


Liz is married and has a 17-year-old son. She is also a former Nashville Rollergirl and still loves to skate!

Coming from the small town of Dickson, Liz said they seem to have their own language.  Just for fun, she compiled a list of “southernisms” in a coffee table book, the Sub-Urban Dicksonary, to help all the newcomers to Nashville understand the language.  It’s the first of three and she is working on two other books with a similar concept.


We welcome Liz and her experience to Priority Staffing Group!
