Global provider of talent outsourcing and advisory services, AMS (formerly Alexander Mann Solutions), has appointed two new Directors, Jacqueline Welch and Franck Cohen, to its Board as it continues its strong growth trajectory.

Jacqueline Welch, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer at The New York Times, brings with her a wealth of relevant experience in senior talent roles in the professional services, financial services and media industries. Franck Cohen, formerly Chief Customer Officer at SAP and now on the board of several leading technology organisations, as well as serving as an advisor to Workday and UiPath, brings with him knowledge and expertise in the application of technology to the delivery of B2B services.

This latest news follows a period of strong growth throughout the world, especially in the United States, where the team has grown four- fold in the last 18 months and is now close to 2,000 strong. Expansion in Europe and Asia with multiple new office openings in those regions further evidences the extent to which AMS is helping many of the world’s leading organisations gain competitive advantage through talent.

Rosaleen Blair, Founder and Chair of AMS, welcomed the new appointments:

“It’s an incredibly exciting time for AMS. The talent acquisition market is evolving at pace and in order to stay ahead of the curve and deliver the innovative solutions that businesses have come to expect of our firm, we need to continue to grow and expand our organisation. I have no doubt that the experience which Jacqueline and Franck will bring to the Board will be enormously valuable for our clients and our people, and we are all looking forward to working closely with them.”

Jacqueline commented:

“I’m delighted to be joining the AMS team. The firm’s commitment to driving innovative talent solutions and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion is inspirational. I’m looking forward to being part of the company’s future growth.”

Franck added:

“AMS provides its clients with market-leading talent technology expertise and I am excited to help the team on its journey to leading the market even further in this area. The future for the business is about further automation and ML/ AI capabilities to develop advanced services for its clients.”
