Cincinnati, Ohio—Prolink, one of the largest talent acquisition and workforce management organizations in the country as ranked by Staffing Industry Analysts, announced new roles for four operational leaders: Abby Zimmerman, Brent Wallace, Joby Myers and Matt Frankey. Each will serve in the newly created role of Area Vice Presidents (AVP) and are tasked with leading various departmental teams and geographic territories for key Prolink brands, including Prolink, Prolink and Prolink. These positions will allow the organization to drive and sustain new growth as the staffing industry reckons with a post-pandemic market.
“We have an incredible group of experienced and highly strategic leaders throughout the country. Their appointments to this new and critical Area Vice President role are directly attributed to their many contributions to the Prolink Family. We look forward to continuing to drive professional development at all levels of the organization as our industry and country begin to define the new “normal” in a post-pandemic world,” Tony Munafo, Prolink CEO and cofounder said. “I look forward to working together as we continue to evolve as a world class staffing enterprise.”
Brief summaries of each AVP’s professional background and new territories are listed below:
Ms. Zimmerman joined Prolink in 2013 as a recruiter and quickly advanced through several levels of the organization throughout her tenure. She spearheaded the growth of several key clients and markets, with particular focus on Prolink’s direct placement services. Her territories and teams include Cincinnati (Prolink), Direct Placement, Phoenix, Columbia, Tampa, Nashville, Cleveland and Dallas.
