Zurich/Lausanne 20 June 2016 – Staff Finder is bringing Michael Agoras on board. The former CEO of personnel services provider Adecco Switzerland knows the employment market and recruitment sector better than anyone. As an additional member of the Board of Directors, he will support the start-up in its growth strategy from July.
After a professional break, Michael Agoras is joining the Board of Directors at Staff Finder, the first marketplace for flexible work. He worked at Adecco, the leading global personnel services provider, for more than 25 years, the last 13 as CEO Adecco Switzerland. In this function, he positioned the company as a holistic personnel services provider. Agoras wants to use his expertise to help Staff Finder internationalise its on-demand marketplace for flexible work. “In future, a company’s planning will not exist in the same form as it does today. That Is why we need flexible management on all levels – including human resources. Staff Finder has the potential to revolutionise recruitment around the globe – the market should adapt to this,” says Agoras on his new assignment.
As a former Country Manager at Adecco, Michael Agoras can draw on excellent strategic and operative tools. “With the planned expansion underway, Staff Finder is ready to take the next big step. We look forward to working together with Michael Agoras, who will help to take us further with his extensive network and experience in business development”, says Viktor Calabrò, Founder and Owner of Staff Finder. Michael Agoras is now the third established industry expert to join Staff Finder recently, after Gianni Valeri (Country Manager) and Mark Sandmeier (Business Consultant for strategy and partnership development).
