LaSalle Network Names Vice President of Sales and Director of Human Resources
Chicago, IL, March 2, 2009 – LaSalle Network, a $30 million Chicago-based professional services firm specializing in staffing and recruiting, today announced it has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of Maureen Brown as Vice President of Sales and Sirmara Campbell as Director of Human Resources.
“With 600 percent growth from 2001 to 2008, promoting these two dedicated and talented women to undertake more strategic and developmental internal and external responsibilities will be the key to our company’s future success,” said Tom Gimbel, founder and chief executive officer. “We have a long standing tradition of promoting from within, so I am pleased to add two people with such passion, talent and vision to the senior ranks.” Both individuals are part of the organization’s Executive Management Team.
LaSalle Network started in 1998 by then 26-year-old Tom Gimbel and has amassed three offices and nearly 100 employees in only 10 short years. LaSalle boasts just under $30 million in revenue with business practices in Accounting, Finance, Technology, Human Resources, Administrative and Call Center/Customer Service.
Brown joined LaSalle in 2003 as a business development manager. By securing and growing more than $6 million in annual revenue in her sales territory, Brown rose to the ranks of managing director, before her most recent promotion to vice president. Her success in growing key accounts for herself, as well as her staff, is a vital element of the company’s continued growth.
Campbell, who started her career at LaSalle in 1999, held the title of human resources manager, prior to her recent promotion. Campbell’s extensive experience includes operations, quality assurance, project management, marketing and sales. Campbell recently spearheaded a plan to provide health insurance coverage to over 600 temporary employees.
LaSalle Network plans to open two more offices in 2009 and is currently hiring more recruiters to meet the demands of their clients.
