Executive Search Firm Gerard Stewart Recruits Vince Verna as CEO of Counsel on Call

Atlanta, January 12, 2015 – International executive search firm Gerard Stewart announced it has placed Vince Verna as Chief Executive Officer of Counsel on Call, a legal services company that provides experienced legal talent working on an on-demand basis. The search and placement was led by Gerard Stewart Founder and Managing Partner Lisa Maxwell.

Verna most recently worked with Experis, a division of ManpowerGroup and global leader in professional resourcing and project-based workforce solutions. As Vice President of Strategic Accounts and Solutions Sales for the company, he drove year-over-year growth of 10 percent with revenues exceeding $700M. Prior to this role, he served as VP of Managed Solutions for Comsys and Chief Operating Officer of Acumen Solutions, where he was responsible for a profitable $40M P&L.

Verna’s placement reflects what many companies are now searching for in their executive leadership quests: Transferable expertise from a different sector that offers relevance and value for another area of professional services.

“Securing Counsel on Call’s next CEO is a proud moment for us,” said Maxwell. “Counsel on Call was looking for a leader who could bring best practices in the IT and managed services spaces. Vince has the right combination of managed services, business development, and technology expertise. He is exactly who Counsel on Call needs.”
