MARTY RASTELLI

Founder and CEO

After nearly two decades working in various roles in the travel nurse staffing industry, the company Marty Rastelli recruited for before founding Pinnacle Travel Staffing, eliminated the Psychiatric and Correctional division. While some would be devastated over their employer’s decision but remain complacent with it, Marty capitalized on his own epiphany. With over 20 years of industry experience as a Travel Nurse Recruiter and Director of Recruitment, he realized that the need to fill jobs in this area wouldn’t vanish simply because his current employer would no longer service this forgotten niche. In fact, he immediately recognized that there was, and remains a tremendous call to fill positions for Psychiatric and Correctional nurses. He left and launched Pinnacle Travel Staffing in 2017, where he proudly sits at the helm, supporting an energetic staff with a mission to build relationships and support for every single one of their clients.

You’ll often hear Marty repeat that “Pinnacle wants to work with their nurses for 13 years, not just 13 weeks.” In order to do so, he prides his business model on nurturing each individual relationship first. “It’s most important – the good relationships that we have. And we preach it,” he says. With faith and family as his founding principles, he manages and promotes a positive work environment that translates into successful careers for Pinnacle clients.

He totes this faith and family, sometimes literally, into his office every day. Born last into a larger-than-life Italian family of seven, Marty learned from a tender age how to stand out and survive. Often times, his family would pack their van and go, cramming all seven into one hotel room. Being the youngest sibling, Marty jokes about always being the one to sleep on the floor. While his family didn’t live lavishly, they loved hard and made the most of every moment. “It made us close and able to deal not only with each other, but with hard circumstances.” He and his siblings, two of whom also work alongside him at Pinnacle, carry tremendous respect for their late parents, who instilled appreciation and decency down into their bones. “My Dad used to say, ‘If you don’t lie, you never have to remember what you said,” and that sentiment is not only what Marty teaches his staff but has cemented as a building block for his business legacy. “We are never going to do the wrong thing when people aren’t looking. We continuously do the right thing.”

Pinnacle’s steady growth each year and constant daily bustle since breaking into the nurse staffing scene, proves Marty and his team are setting themselves apart from the competition because they know what they know and they know it well. As the company leader, every client can be comfortable knowing that Marty and all of his recruiters understand the wants and needs of nurses and what they go through, providing ease and trust during every step of the process; and to provide additional support, Marty is available 24/7, willing to speak with any and all of his employees as needed.

When he isn’t at work or spending time with his family, you will find him coaching judo, wrestling, baseball and football. And don’t be surprised by his stature, Marty comes from a family of judo champions and is 3rd degree black belt! But at the end of the day, he is happiest at home with his wife, Stacy and their three sons: Landen, Nicolas and Cooper.

“This isn’t about me. I have a lot of people counting on me. I pride myself on accomplishing what we can control while helping thousands of people. Through extension of our employees both in the office and in the field, we are helping patients throughout the country. And that is a good feeling and something we can all be proud of. The rest is up to God.”
