Express Announces Leadership Transition

Express Employment Professionals announces leadership transition.

OKLAHOMA CITY (PRWEB) APRIL 03, 2018 - Express Employment Professionals announced that plans have moved forward naming Express co-founder Bill Stoller as Chief Executive Officer and naming fellow co-founder Bob Funk as President, effective April 1, 2018.

Stoller has also been named Chairman of the Board, while Funk has been named Chairman of the Executive Committee and Vice Chairman of the Board. As CEO, Stoller will have day-to-day operational authority and decision-making responsibility of the company.

“My goal moving forward is the continued success of Express,” said Stoller, “We are the premier staffing company in the U.S., Canada and South Africa, and serving the needs of our Franchisees, their clients and associates is paramount to the continued growth of Express.”

Stoller and Funk agreed to this change several years ago, setting the stage for a transition leading into the company’s 35th anniversary.

“Despite this change in leadership there will be continuity,” said Funk. “It’s business as usual at Express, and that’s good for business and for all our people.”

Express now boasts over 800 franchise locations, with a goal of reaching 900 total franchise locations. For every Express office that opens, on average 600 more people find work annually and work an average of 37 hours per week.

“Putting people to work is a mission,” added Funk. “We will continue to put people to work so they can have successful careers and take care of their families.”

As Express moves into this new phase of business leadership, the two founders are proud of their staff and company’s impact on the communities they serve.

“Our organization’s great staff and leadership is the main reasons for our success,” said Stoller. “Within a company, the CEO and President guide the ‘ship’ by creating a vision, while staff ultimately mans the ship to ensure success.

We’re privileged to do what we do, and we look forward to continuing for the next 35 years.”
