Executive Search Leader Lisa Maxwell Named to SIA’s 2018 Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing List

November 29, 2018 – For the fourth consecutive year, Lisa Maxwell, Gerard Stewart founder and managing partner, was named to Staffing Industry Analysts’ Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing list.

This year’s list includes 100 influential women in the Americas — twice as many as past lists — and 50 more from around the world. Maxwell has made the list since its inception in 2015.

“It continues to be essential that we recognize female leadership and call out the immensely important roles these women play in developing, driving and delivering solutions, work models and value for the industry. It is exciting to see the list grow this year to include more of the executives who are making things happen across the workforce solutions ecosystem,” said Subadhra Sriram, editor and publisher, media products at SIA.

Under Maxwell’s leadership, Gerard Stewart’s CEO practice has continued to expand. Over the last two years alone, the firm has placed dozens of high-profile staffing executives, including recently placing the new CEO of ettain group. Maxwell’s hyper-focus on the human capital management and talent acquisition ecosystem has made her an authority in the leadership needs and demands of today’s staffing, RPO, MSP, HR outsourcing and HR technology firms.

Throughout her career, Maxwell has been recognized with multiple industry awards, including being named five times to SIA’s “Staffing 100,” a list of the top 100 most influential people in the staffing industry. She has established herself as the go-to expert for C- and Board-level placements in the human capital space.
