A native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Joe Goddard spent most of his childhood in southwest Missouri. He graduated from Webb City High School as a celebrated athlete, having competed on state-ranked wrestling and football teams. He received his undergraduate degree in Business from Missouri State University and subsequently relocated to Alabama, where he entered the sales industry. Two years later, a friend took notice of his interpersonal skills and keen business acumen, and advised Mr. Goddard to enter the recruiting industry.
Mr. Goddard joined Horizon Healthcare in 1993; after only two years, he became the youngest Vice President in company history. Capitalizing on his talent and early success, he founded his first company in 1996. Known as Goddard Healthcare, the company provided healthcare staffing solutions. Two years later, he created the nurse recruiting firm RNSTAT, while two years after that, the Nurse Advanced Practice Database became his third company.
In 2006, after selling his original set of companies, Joe Goddard returned to his native Arkansas. There, he began The Cardinal Group, and recently added Bronko Technology Consulting, Inc., under its umbrella in 2012. Mr. Goddard continues to manage placement activities and corporate development. A husband and father of two, a ten-year-old son and an eight-year-old daughter, he combines his professional responsibilities with an active family life.
