Albert Simmons joins Magellan Search & Staffing
Magellan Search & Staffing has appointed Albert K. Simmons to its executive leadership team as chief operating officer.
Simmons will be driving “Best in Class” business processes, marketing strategies and account management to facilitate the Philadelphia based company’s continued growth. He will also focus on defining emerging markets and identifying promising areas for corporate expansion.
Simmons has more than twenty years of information technology management experience, most recently serving as chief business development officer for a $115 million systems integration firm based in Wayne, Philadelphia. In addition, Simmons was partner and CEO at a major New York based IT services company, increasing the company’s income from $18 million to $50 million in just over two years.
Simmons said, “In today’s business climate, customers today are looking to consolidate their business partners by doing more business with fewer suppliers. Over the past 11 years, Magellan has been building its service capabilities to meet current and ongoing demands.”
The company’s president, Mathew Kenefic, commented, “Coming on the heels of once again being named to the Inc. 500|5000 list, the addition of Albert to our executive team is another leap forward in our aggressive growth strategy. He has a proven track record of championing change and growth and we couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.”
In recent years, Magellan has won a number of awards, including being named to the 2013 Best of Staffing Lists for Clients and Talent, 2012 and 2013 Inc. 500|5000 list, the 2012 Philadelphia 100 List, and the 2013 Top Executive Recruiters list.
