TalentLaunch Hires Jeffrey M. Staats to Lead their Marketing Transformation Efforts

CLEVELAND, OH  – August 30th, 2018 – TalentLaunch, a network of independently-operated staffing and recruitment firms, recently hired Jeffrey Staats as Director of Marketing responsible for leading the marketing services arm for their network staffing firms. Jeff has been building and leading departments in multiple industries from Fortune 500 companies to startups for close to twenty years. He is also very active in the local marketing community having been President of the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the American Marketing Association, held adjunct faculty positions at local universities and co-founded the monthly Digital Marketing Special Interest Group (SIG). Jeff most recently held the position of Head of Marketing for EmployStream, a local SaaS provider of onboarding and candidate engagement software for the staffing industry.    

“I have been impressed with Aaron Grossman’s vision of creating a better candidate experience in the staffing industry for a few years now,” said Jeff. “It’s been great to have the opportunity to execute and deliver that vision through our team. I have always believed that an ROI-focused, best-in-class marketing function can create an immense amount of value for companies looking to drive new revenue opportunities. I’m excited to build a high-functioning, high-value team that can service not just our in-network companies, but can be monetized for out-of-network staffing firms as well.”    

“We have taken a methodical approach to build up each of our service offerings over the last few years and it was time to focus on marketing, especially with our network firms facing a continuous talent shortage and increased competition for talent,” states Derek Pittak, TalentLaunch COO. “Jeff not only brings years of experience leading marketing teams, but understands how to build value for our firms by focusing on what drives their businesses. I’m also excited to see us expand into more digital marketing services, like automation, candidate engagement and A.I. ”
