(NYSE: MAN) today announced that Darryl Green, age 46, has been named Executive Vice President for Manpower Inc. and President of the company's Asia and Pacific operations, effective today. He succeeds Iain Herbertson, who served five years in this position and is retiring back to his home country of England where he served for 14 years in several management roles, including three years as Managing Director of Manpower UK.
"Darryl's previous experience as a CEO at both Indian and Japanese companies reveals a stellar record of delivering growth in market share, revenues and earnings.

Previously, Green was CEO of Vodafone Japan, a publicly listed mobile services provider, where earnings more than doubled and revenues grew to US$15 billion during his three years at the helm.
