In August of 2017, she was brought on to start LINK Professional Group providing Financial, IT, HR and Sales & Marketing solutions to clients. They provide consulting, contract and direct hire search services. From 2017 to 2018 they experienced 100% YOY growth and were profitable in a state where the unemployment rate is less than the national average. They are also positioned to double their business this year with locations in Houston, Dallas, and now The Woodlands office which they recently opened in the winter of 2018.

In addition to driving sales for Dallas, Mimi has also developed a sales training program for LINK, and have been training/mentoring sales professionals in both the light industrial space as well as those sales professionals dedicated to the professional team.
