Gerard Stewart Places Dynamic, Experienced CFO With Global Employment Solutions

FEB. 28, 2019 – Gerard Stewart has placed former Pontoon executive Klaus Geiser with Global Employment Solutions as the Chief Financial Officer.

Headquartered in Littleton, CO, Global Employment Solutions has offices throughout the United States.

They also provide specialized IT staffing and consulting solutions through their IT division, Fahrenheit IT.

Global Employment Solutions is privately owned. They are ranked no. 81 on Staffing Industry Analysts’ list of largest staffing firms in the U.S.

“The role of the CFO has changed a lot over the years,” said Lisa Maxwell, Gerard Stewart Founder and Managing Partner. “Companies today want someone with industry experience who can hit the ground running. They’re looking for a strategic partner in their CFO, someone who can provide vision and guidance. This is exactly what Global Employment Solutions is getting with Klaus at the helm.”

Prior to starting with Global Employment Solutions in February, Geiser had been with The Adecco Group since 2005, last serving as the Global CFO with Adecco’s Pontoon Solutions business, which provides MSP and RPO services.

“Klaus rounds out a top-tier leadership team at Global Employment Solutions,” said Maxwell. “He will be a key partner in the company’s growth vision and strategy, and will provide industry insight as Global Employment Solutions expands their footprint and delivery.”
