Melissa Brenner Celebrated for Uplifting the Staffing Industry

READING, Mass., November 19, 2021 - Eliassen Group, a strategic consulting and talent solutions firm, announced today the news that Melissa Brenner, Executive Vice President – Integrations & Operational Strategy at Eliassen Group, has been recognized on Staffing Industry Analysts' Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing list for 2021. In its seventh year, this annual list recognizes women for their achievements as well as their attempts to elevate the ecosystem in a variety of ways.

The Global Power 150 list is not a ranking but a way to recognize women in leadership positions and to increase visibility for the important contributions these influencers have made across the industry. While those contributions and their careers have been remarkable, so have the efforts many have made in the last year to build their communities, including their DE&I initiatives. These honorees have helped to shape a $445 billion global staffing industry while paving the way for a more equitable future of work. The 2021 list includes 26 women who are being named to the list for the first time and spotlights many women for their efforts to uplift varied communities by knocking down barriers to their advancement while providing them with employment opportunities through new and tested methods.

"Melissa has been positively impacting Eliassen Group since the day she joined the team," said Dave MacKeen, CEO of Eliassen Group. "She has gone above and beyond her role by keeping pace with ever-evolving technology, and protecting the confidential information of our clients, employees, and organization from innumerable potential security breaches, thereby saving the company hundreds of thousands of dollars. On top of that, Melissa has led the successful integration of no fewer than eight acquired companies."

"Melissa also takes great pride in her role as an executive co-head of Eliassen's culture program," explained Sandra Callahan, VP of Marketing at Eliassen Group, who shares leadership of the culture program. "Our culture initiative strives to ensure a healthy and inclusive work environment. We know how fortunate we are to have her on our team, and it's wonderful to see her celebrated."
