Cielo leaders Sue Marks, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, and Sally Hunter, Executive Vice President – EMEA Client Services, have been named among the top 150 female leaders in the recruitment industry by Staffing Industry Analysts on their 2020 Global Power 150 list. The annual list highlights women who have made significant contributions to the success of their companies and the ecosystem.

Of first-time honoree Sally Hunter, SIA writes:

With a focus on client relationship management, service innovation and operational excellence based on her strategic insight into talent acquisition, Cielo Executive VP Sally Hunter oversaw 35% growth in 12 months from 2018 to 2019 and 18% growth in 2019 across her EMEA recruitment process outsourcing client base, comprising 30-plus organizations from across healthcare, life sciences, professional services and high-tech industries. Hunter scaled her operations to deliver this growth through launching a proactive “high potential” program, promoting internal succession planning and celebrating internal mobility — which was itself enabled through a focus on diversity, equality and inclusion, mentoring, and learning and development.
