Whitney Brooks


Whitney Brooks is the owner of Unmannedpower LLC, the world’s only professional recruiting and consulting firm exclusively serving the unmanned systems and robotics industry. From engineers to operators, strategic managers to technicians, Unmannedpower matches the top talent in the industry marketplace with client companies’ needs to help them exceed their unmanned goals.
With both an MBA and a CPA, Whitney has worked nearly every facet of business including finance, operations, sales, training, quality assurance, and of course, staffing. After earning her CPA, she began her career in auditing at a Big Six accounting firm. It was there that she realized that the true power of organizations lies not in the strength of their financials, but in the talents and passion of their people. When the opportunity came to move into a national recruiting firm, she jumped quickly and hasn’t looked back.
In 2012, Whitney founded Unmannedpower with a core philosophy: Unmanned systems are more than a profession – they are a passion. Our professionals are creative, technically-focused, and driven to change the world. They deserve a recruiter who understands the value of their unique talents, and who can match them with a network of organizations that will take them to the next level. Whitney has placed skilled people across a wide spectrum of specialties, with a particular emphasis on those difficult-to-source skill combinations that drive the core of our industry.
When not living and breathing unmanned systems, Whitney and her husband, Dallas, devote their time to a variety of passions, most notably keeping their creative and mischievous 4-year-old son off of the police blotter. Whitney is a retired national-level competitor in amateur ballroom and west-coast swing dancing, with multiple event championships to her credit, an avid crafter, and secretly enjoys escaping into a good young adult dystopian novel!
