The Nelson Family of Companies, a staffing provider based in Sonoma, Calif., appointed Donna Farrugia as CEO effective Sept. 9. Farrugia previously was executive director of The Creative Group, the marketing/creative staffing division of Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE: RHI). Before that, she was the global services marketing manager for 3M.
Farrugia has more than 30 years of marketing, business development and management experience.
“When we undertook the search for a new CEO, we had high expectations and requirements for the role,” said Craig Nelson, former CEO. “It quickly became obvious that Ms. Farrugia would meet and exceed them. We have the utmost confidence in her abilities and look forward to the many ways in which Nelson — and our clients and staff — will benefit from her leadership.”
Nelson had taken over the CEO role in January 2012 after the company sold a majority stake in its WorkforceLogic unit to ZeroChaos. Nelson is leaving the company to pursue other endeavors but will remain on the board of directors. He is the son of company founder Gary Nelson.
Nelson was founded in 1970 and provides office/clerical, information technology, industrial, legal, human resources, finance/accounting, engineering, wine and beverage and other staffing services.
