Staffing Industry Analysts announced today that Tony Martin, chairman of Empresaria, will receive the 2014 Peter Yessne Staffing Leadership Award. The award will be presented on March 20 during the Staffing Industry Executive Forum in San Diego.
“I am honored to present Tony with the Peter Yessne Staffing Leadership award for his contribution to the staffing industry,” said Barry Asin, president of Staffing Industry Analysts. “Tony has been a leader and pioneer in the globalization of professional and specialty staffing businesses that has benefitted our industry and all its participants.”
Martin served as chairman and CEO of Select Appointment Holdings from 1992 to 1999. During that time he grew the company from $60 million in annual revenue to over $1.8 billion. Dutch staffing firm Vedior acquired Select and Martin was ultimately appointed chairman and CEO. Vedior was sold to Randstad in 2008. Martin is now chairman of the global staffing firm Empresaria, a publicly listed global staffing firm traded in London.
The annual Peter Yessne Staffing Leadership Award was created to honor the founder and former chairman of Staffing Industry Analysts, Peter Yessne.
