Kingsmill is a former partner at a leading London law firm and has held a series of high-profile non-executive director and advisory roles in the private sector, including at British Airways, Laing O'Rourke, Royal Bank of Scotland and Telewest Communications.

Shaheen was formerly the CEO of Siebel Systems Inc., a customer relationship management software company, and CEO and Global Managing Partner at Andersen Consulting, which later became Accenture.

The company plans to introduce its expanded service line under the SourceRight Solutions brand in November.

Callahan joined Spherion in 2003 as vice president of the assessment group. Since early 2008, however, she has led Spherion's RPO business.
