We also considered the 135 assignments he has completed. 135 times he has represented Philly Temps, Philadelphia and himself with respect and professionalism while remaining flexible and positive.

If the name Ameen P. Sounds familiar, it’s because his Father, Ameen SR, held the EOM title in December of 2014. This apple does not fall from the tree when it comes to a great work ethic, however Ameen does not live in his Father’s shadow. He has used his creativity and focus to forge his own path.
