About Me

Pouria Bidhendi is an expert in professional recruiting with over half a decade of experience from Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies and 2 decades of experience in placing high-level Architects, Engineers, and Construction professionals. Pouria is an environmentalist with a passion for sustainability and prides himself in being a Career Consultant and Company Catalyst for ENR Top 500 firms. Pouria graduated from the University of Florida with honors, started off as a Financial Advisor for North Western Mutual, a 160-year-old Fortune 100 company, worked for Robert Half International, a 70-year-old Fortune 500 firm and one of the largest recruiting firms in the world. Pouria fell in love with helping professionals with career growth and promotions or getting them back on their feet after a layoff, and after interviewing friends and family in the Architecture & Engineering industry, decided to open AE Concepts. AE Concepts was founded in 1999 and started in a “small, humble, unattractive office with a couple of telephones, a fax machine, and one computer.” Since then, Pouria and his team have developed AE Concepts into the premier national recruiting firm for the placement of talented Architects & Engineers, and AE Concepts recently earned the honor of being ranked #2 in the Orlando Business Journal’s Top 20 Best places to work.
