UK recruiter Impellam (IPEL:LSE) today announced that Julia Robertson has been appointed as group chief executive officer with immediate effect. Before joining the staffing business, Ms Robertson was chief executive of the Institute of Employment Consultants, the forerunner of the Recruitment Employment Confederation. She also founded her own recruitment business, Tate, which was sold to Impellam’s Carlisle business division in 2000.
Impellam Group was formed in 2008 after the Corporate Services Group and Carlisle Group merged their operations to create one of the largest staffing firms in the UK. Following the 2008 Impellam merger, Ms Robertson was appointed as the divisional CEO of Impellam's UK Staffing businesses which represent 63% of the company’s revenues.
Chairman Andrew Wilson welcomed the appointment of Ms Robertson. “Her knowledge of the group and extensive insight into the industry will be invaluable in moving Impellam forward through a mixture of organic growth and selective market expansion building on the platform efficiencies that have already been established.”
In February, Impellam (IPEL:LSE) posted a +7% increase in revenue for its 2012 financial year, helped by growth in its domestic market and North America. Revenue amounted to £1,210.8 million in the year.
