Staffing Industry Analysts: Global Power 100 – Women in Staffing
Sue Marks, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cielo, was honored in the 2015 Global Power 100 – Women in Staffing list, compiled by Staffing Industry Analysts. The group created the list to, "change the narrative to honor those women who are affecting staffing firms and by extension, the world of work."
Excerpts from the website:
"Anecdotal evidence indicates that women dominate the staffing industry, working in branch offices. But a very small number make it to boardrooms. On average, women comprise only 6% of board seats at the 27 public staffing firms in the US, for example."
"Sue Marks is a long-time innovative leader in the RPO industry. In 2005, she launched Brookfield, Wis.- based Pinstripe, which acquired UK-based Ochre House in 2013; Marks restructured the global company to operate as the Cielo brand in May 2014. An RPO expert, Marks and her teams continue to expand the global RPO provider’s geographic footprint and product offerings. Cielo counts more than 100 clients and operates in almost 70 countries."
"Marks is president of Competitive Wisconsin Inc. She is the winner of the Marquette University College of Business Administration’s Alumni Award for Entrepreneurship and a three-time winner of both the Working Woman 500 designation and the Future 50 of Wisconsin."
