Manpower Inc. (NYSE: MAN) today announced that Barbara J. Beck, 41, has been named Executive Vice President - U.S. and Canadian Operations. She will begin her new role at Manpower on the 28th of January 2002.
Beck previously served as an Area Vice President/General Manager of United States - West for Sprint, a $23 billion global communications company. Her 15-year tenure at Sprint included management of technical sales and application engineering, business development, opportunity management, operations, technical support and program management. She has a proven ability to tackle complex challenges and execute the appropriate strategies to drive profitability and customer satisfaction.
"Barbara brings to Manpower a strong and consistent record of success in management across a wide array of functional operations, and I am confident that she will be an excellent addition to Manpower's U.S. and Canadian operations," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, Chairman and CEO of Manpower Inc.
Beck will be filling part of the role that is being vacated by the retirement of Terry A. Hueneke, 59, Executive Vice President of the Americas and Asia Pacific. Hueneke is retiring after a career spanning 28 years at Manpower in a variety of management and executive positions.
