October 11, 2012 // Franchising.com // Houston, TX  – Karen Pitts, Co-CEO of Link Staffing Services, Inc., has earned a spot amongst an elite group of individual leaders in the staffing industry with her induction into the ASA Leadership Hall of Fame. As the 39th inductee, Karen becomes only the 9th female to be recognized. According to the ASA (American Staffing Association) the award was created in 1985 to recognize outstanding individual contributions made through dedicated service to ASA and the staffing industry.

Pitts launched her first staffing service, Nurses PRN in 1976; which she grew to seven offices in six states within three years. She then served as VP of Med-Staff Inc, a medical staffing company until, in 1980, she joined with her husband and Co-CEO, Bill Pitts to create Link Staffing Services. The company first launched from a small office in downtown Houston and has since grown into a nationwide operation with 50 locations that service 14 states.
