ATLANTA, 06.12.12 – Randstad, the second largest HR services and staffing company in the world, is pleased to announce the appointment of Kristin Kelley and Jay Ferguson to lead the organization’s U.S. marketing and legal functions, respectively. These key leadership appointments underscore Randstad’s commitment to continued growth and success in the U.S. marketplace.
The recent acquisition of SFN Group creates a unique opportunity for Randstad to lead the U.S. market through the combined strength of its people, resources, experience, recruiting ability, local and industry knowledge, and customer understanding.
To help support its growth objectives, Randstad has appointed Kristin Kelley, previously vice president of marketing for Randstad US, Professionals, to executive vice president of marketing for Randstad US. Kelley brings more than a decade of experience in the staffing industry to this leadership position, where she will oversee the comprehensive marketing function for both Randstad general staffing and professionals businesses in the U.S.
Randstad has also appointed Jay Ferguson as chief legal officer. With in-depth knowledge of the regulatory environment, he will be responsible for coordinating the company’s overall U.S. legal strategy for general staffing and professionals. Ferguson, who has been with Randstad for almost three years, was previously a partner with Duane Morris LLP. He also served as outside counsel to Randstad for nine years.
“Kristin and Jay offer unique expertise and vision to further enhance the strategic development and execution of our marketing and legal initiatives within the U.S.,” said Linda Galipeau, CEO, North America, at Randstad. “We are confident that they, along with the other members of our leadership team, will create a significantly stronger, more distinct voice when speaking to our candidates and clients—ultimately strengthening our leadership position in the world’s largest staffing market. These appointments are further evidence of our commitment to invest in and build upon our U.S. brand. As we establish the company as the North American market leader, we believe our clients expect to see more sophisticated, value-added workforce solutions and a broader suite of offerings to support their business objectives. With our newly combined resources and the experience of our leadership team, we are well-positioned to deliver on those expectations with unmatched service and solutions for our diverse client base.”
