St. Paul, MN, July 28, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Avionté, a provider of staffing industry technology solutions, announced today the addition of Ken Marshall as Regional Sales Vice President. Marshall will be responsible for sales operations and growth across the West Coast of the US, bringing innovative solutions that result in increased business efficiencies to staffing firms of all sizes.
Ken Marshall has more than ten years of versatile and hands-on experience in the staffing industry. He most recently held the position of Central Regional Vice President with Ajilon Professional Staffing (a division of Adecco) where he managed 125 employees. Marshall also retained the position of Managing Director at Digital People (a division of ProStaff), and was responsible for 25 staffing professionals. In his previous industry roles, Ken played an integral role in driving new business opportunities and advancing the growth of numerous Fortune 500 businesses.
John Long, CEO of Avionté remarked, “As a highly proficient staffing industry professional with hands-on experience of the challenges staffing firms are facing, bringing Ken to Avionté was an easy decision. While building our sales team, we looked for an individual who had walked in the shoes of a staffing professional and who truly understands the business. His experience in building businesses and relationships, while working with new technology, will play an important role in connecting staffing firms with a solution genuinely designed for their industry.”
With a background in management and business development in the staffing industry, Marshall was taken with the company’s vision to understand the talent needed to best serve its clients. “Avionté understands that you can’t just hire people with technology experience, but that you also need people experienced in using the technology,” stated Marshall. “When I initially saw the Avionté solution, my first impression was that it was the only one of its kind that actually molded to a staffing firm’s operations, instead of making the business mold to the technology, as I’ve seen from many other providers’ products.”
Avionté also hired staffing industry veteran, Matt Gallagher, in the role of Regional Sales Vice President of the Eastern US. Supplementing an already strong sales team with two executive-level sales professionals will further communicate the benefits of the Avionté solution, and the company’s well-rounded leadership.
In addition to the new Executive Sales staff, Avionté has experienced strong growth across the company. Early last month, Avionté relocated to a larger office space which more than tripled its previous space and made way for the increase in personnel. Avionté has experienced more than 100 percent growth in staff over the past six months and signed over 500 new users last quarter. Avionté continues to ramp up its support, implementation and development teams to accommodate the rapid increase in sales.
