Recruitment Process Outsourcing AssociationSan Rafael, CA January 24, 2013 - Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA), the first professional association for the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) industry, today announces a new Board for 2013-14.

“As Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) has reached new high growth years, industry leadership is critical,” emphasized Mike Mayeux, Novotus CEO. “This segment is just over a decade old and continued collaboration between the companies that provide this valuable service will have a material impact on existing and future clients of RPO services”.

“We have big plans for taking the RPOA to a new level of service for both buyers and providers of RPO.” – Mike Mayeux, Novotus CEO and RPOA President

The 2013-14 RPOA Board includes: President, Mike Mayeux of Novotus; President, Vice President/President Elect; Joel Capperella of Yoh; Immediate Past President, John Younger of Accolo; Secretary/Treasurer, Matt Schreyer of Instigate; At Large Board Member, Mark Lukens of Method3.

“I am delighted to see the organization grow so fast with such capable executives,” said John Younger, Accolo CEO. “The organizations they represent continue to define and elevate the entire recruitment process outsourcing industry.”

In addition to peer-support and thought-leadership, the RPOA’s mission is to educate the market about RPO. Joel Capperella, Yoh's Vice President of Marketing, expresses his commitment and passion for this mission: “The RPO space is incredibly underserved by the ‘analyst’ that serves it,” Joel said. “Not only are the buyers increasing the sophistication with which they approach evaluation of the services, the services themselves are becoming more segmented to meet the demand of a changing market. As such, I firmly believe that we as practitioners must be committed to providing as much information and value to the entire ecosystem so that the discipline serves to advance the workforce related strategic objectives of even the smallest organizations seeking to take an outsourced approach to their recruiting needs".

“The passion John and Mike put into starting and growing the RPOA is inspiring,” said Lamees Abourahma, RPOA Executive Director. “With the commitment of the new Board and the growing membership, we have the momentum to achieve new breakthroughs for the RPOA and the RPO industry.”
