About Tri State Domestic

Tri State Domestic was the brainchild of Thomas Rybak (1951-2010), an industry insider of the domestic world. He attended Gannon College in Erie, PA, and began his career as a chef learning and working in the Italian restaurants of Erie. Later, Tom became a private chef to billionaire tobacco heiress Doris Duke. After working with Duke, Tom worked as a private chef for many of the most influential investment advisors on Wall Street. From there, Tom used his experiences and relationships in the financial world & the domestic staffing industry to start Tri State Domestic.

Knowing he would need help & craving a business partner he trusted, Tom enlisted Mark Seasholtz to become a partner in the burgeoning agency. Mark quickly blended his years of experience as a union business agent for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, along with Tom’s domestic staffing expertise. Consequently, with domestic staffing & labor experience in place the partnership quickly flourished.

When Tom was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Tom & Mark recruited Matthew Contreras to join the team. Matthew’s education & background was instrumental in bringing Tri State Domestic, Inc. into the digital age of staffing. Matthew is a former U.S. Naval communications officer, former coordinator of technology for State University of New York in New York City, and former director/project manager for several national technology companies.

The partners continued on after Tom’s passing always remembering his legacy. Tom believed that you make miracles happen by praying, working hard, and helping others. Mark & Matthew continue the tradition of outstanding service to clients & applicants with that philosophy in mind. We encourage anyone with questions to call and seek our guidance. Tri State Domestic enjoys helping families find quality applicants, and candidates find outstanding positions. Please let us know how we can accommodate you today!
