Randstad appointed Rebecca Henderson to lead global businesses and Karen Fichuk as CEO of North American operations; both will join the firm’s executive board. Shareholders formally adopted the proposed appointments at today’s annual general meeting.
In January, Linda Galipeau, who previously led Randstad’s North American business, announced plans to step down on March 26 to pursue her career outside the company.
Henderson, currently CEO of Randstad Sourceright, will be responsible for global businesses, which include Randstad Sourceright, Monster, RiseSmart and Global Client Solutions.
Fichuk will become CEO of Randstad’s North American business. She is an American national with more than 25 years of experience as a leader at The Nielsen Co., most recently as president of developed markets and strategic initiatives, responsible for North America, Western Europe, and Australia/New Zealand.
Randstad’s executive board now comprises six people, and its percentage of women has increased to 33%.
