Alexander Mann Solutions, the global leader in talent acquisition and management solutions, has appointed Michael Wachholz as President of the Americas and the Global Head of Contingent Workforce Solutions.
This leadership appointment reflects the firm’s ambition to continue on its impressive growth trajectory in the US and further expand its total talent workforce offering. It also comes just a week after the business celebrated its number one spot on the annual HRO Today Baker’s Dozen RPO rankings.
Michael will bring his extensive industry knowledge and global expertise in talent acquisition and contingent workforce solutions to lead Alexander Mann Solution’s expansion in the US and contingent workforce solutions globally. Michael started his career as a lawyer and he has also worked in investment banking; since moving into the talent acquisition industry he has been recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts as one of the 100 most influential figures in the world of contingent work, listed in the 2016 European Staffing 100; both the 2016 & 2017 North America Staffing 100; as well as by HRO Today in 2014, 2015 & 2016 as an HR “Superstar”.
Commenting on his move, Michael explained:
“Having spent the last decade of my career delivering talent acquisition solutions to the world’s most admired companies, I have learned that the key to success comes down to one thing: people. Alexander Mann Solutions has earned a reputation for being the leader at engaging, motivating and retaining the best talent for not only its clients, but also itself. Successful talent acquisition solutions must start with putting the interests of customers and candidates first – something many of the largest staffing and recruiting firms simply don’t do. Alexander Mann Solution’s position as an independent and agile global firm that embraces innovative technologies and delivery models means that it is a true leader in the industry. Partnering with clients to explore new ideas and deliver creative solutions to accelerate their people strategy is at the heart of what makes the company the global leader it is today – and is at the heart of what I believe in as an executive.”
Rosaleen Blair, CBE, Founder & CEO of Alexander Mann Solutions, adds:
“As Alexander Mann Solutions continues to go from strength-to-strength, we are constantly looking at expanding our executive team of expert talent in order to deliver the best possible solutions to our global client base. Michael’s proven industry experience, deep understanding of the market and superior leadership qualities mean he is a perfect fit to lead our expansion in North America and the global growth of our CWS business and we have no doubt that his appointment will add significant value to our business, our clients and the team.”
