Susan comes to McKinley from On Assignment-Lab Support where she managed 11 markets throughout the Northeast and Southwest. She performed training on scientific recruiting and business development strategies with staffing consultants and senior staffing consultants. While managing a team that represented 25 percent of the divisional revenue line, Susan also managed contract negotiations with existing and target clients within various scientific industries.

McKinley’s largest focus on staff hiring this year has been on its Business Development team. Joining the team to direct business development in Virginia and Dallas is Quincie Rivers, a staffing industry veteran. Quincie comes to McKinley from Adecco where she managed a twelve branch network, equaling annual revenue of $29 million. She developed a market plan which directly impacted the re-building of the Baltimore Region.
