FEB. 6, 2019 – Gerard Stewart, an international leader in executive search, today announced the successful completion of the search for Sandy Mazur’s replacement as Spherion President. Mazur, who is scheduled to retire in March after over 20 years with the company, will be succeeded by Rebecca Rogers Tijerino.

Rogers Tijerino, who has both experience as an entrepreneur and as an executive for some of the largest staffing companies in the world, including The Adecco Group and Kelly Services, will be responsible for operations and growth strategies for Spherion and its franchises.

“I’m excited to lead Spherion to its next phase of growth and continue the great work that Sandy has put in place,” said Rogers Tijerino, who, prior to joining Spherion, was the CEO of The Intersect Group. “Having been in the staffing industry for many years, I know that Spherion has a great reputation for quality, professionalism and customer experience, which are all things that attracted me to the brand. To me, staffing is not just about making a hire – it’s about improving people’s lives and propelling businesses and communities forward.”

Lisa Maxwell, who led the search, said Rogers Tijerino’s prior experience in executive leadership positions in local, regional and global firms is a great match for Spherion’s model and growth goals.

“Rebecca’s breadth of experience in professional and general staffing, executive recruitment, MSP/VMS, RPO and consulting aligns perfectly with Spherion and its plans to expand,” said Maxwell. “She is also a great cultural fit for the company. She’s going to be the leader Spherion needs but also the leader the individual franchisees will be able to turn to for sound operational advice and strategy.”

In a press release sent out last week, Mazur said this of the successful search:

“In our business we talk about making the perfect match for companies, and Rebecca is a perfect match for us to lead the company forward,” said Mazur.
