ATLANTA, GA, October 15, 2015 – Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) has released its inaugural “Global Power 100 – Women in Staffing” list, naming Lisa Maxwell to the prestigious roster of 100 women across the globe for their contributions to the staffing industry. SIA’s Global Power 100 features an array of women across different industry segments – policymakers, businesspersons, technologists, crusaders, leaders – all devoted to promoting and shaping talent.
As Founder and Managing Partner at Gerard Stewart, an international leader in executive search firm focused on the c-suite, Maxwell advises corporations on succession planning and talent strategy for professional services, human capital, talent management and staffing executives across the U.S. and Europe.
A 15-year human capital industry veteran based in Atlanta, Maxwell was named to the “North America 50” category of the list. Throughout Maxwell’s career, she’s been recognized with multiple industry awards, including SIA’s “Staffing Industry 100,” a list of the 100 most influential people in the staffing industry for two consecutive years, in 2013 and 2014.
“During my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many talented women in staffing, talent management and executive search. I couldn’t be more honored to be counted among this list of accomplished women,” said Maxwell. “It has been rewarding to see so many women excel in their careers, and many rise to the c-suite in this industry. The next step is the board room. I applaud Staffing Industry Analysts for creating this list of women leaders in staffing.”
“By showcasing these women, we hope to draw attention to the gender gap that exists in staffing, albeit less than in some other industries— and introduce talking points that lead the industry forward,” said Sudadhra Siriam, editor and publisher of media products, SIA. “Regardless of titles, these women are game changers, people who have taken their operations to a whole new level.”
