About you


  • Candidate should come from staffing world, but must have senior mgt experience, an excellent/winning track record and have managed a P & L larger than $25mm

  • Winning candidate must truly have the DNA of an entrepreneur and candidates that have previously worked at only large companies will most likely not be considered.
