Burns said, "I have enjoyed my tenure as a director for Manpower and I continue to be a big supporter of the company and its management. However, in order to be as effective as possible in all of my commitments, it is necessary to make difficult choices about where my time is invested. I will miss my time with the Manpower board and I wish them all the best," she added.
Burns was appointed to the Manpower Inc. board of directors in July of 2003.
"Manpower was built upon the philosophy of matching the right person with the right job and, in this case, her other board commitment is a nearly perfect match, so I support her decision," said Jeffrey A Joerres, chairman and CEO of Manpower Inc. "Stephanie is a very talented CEO and I appreciate her diligence and commitment to being a superior board member for Manpower. We look forward to seeing many great accomplishments from her in the coming years," he added.
