Aerotek, a leading provider of recruiting and staffing services, announced today that its President of Industrial, Tom Kelly, has been named to Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) 2021 Staffing 100 list. Now in its ninth year, the annual list recognizes leaders in staffing who are impacting the ecosystem and charting a course into the future of workforce solutions.
“Having a leader like Tom, especially over the past year of ups and downs, has been vital in our ability to keep business operations running seamlessly for our clients, contractors and hardworking staff,” said Stacey Jenkins, Aerotek’s CFO, Industrial. “His passion and drive to constant improvement is deeply admirable. We are fortunate to have Tom as a top leader within our organization and congratulate him on this very deserving recognition.”
Kelly started with Aerotek in 1994 as a business operations associate. Over the past 25 years, he has risen to various roles within the organization including vice president of client delivery and chief financial officer. Today, he oversees the growth, strategic development and financial performance of Aerotek’s industrial business and partnerships across North America.
“I’m very humbled for my name to appear alongside so many influential people,” Tom Kelly said. “Especially after seeing how Aerotek’s culture and hard work has persevered over this past year, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help shape its future and look forward to all of the exciting things we have planned to come.”
At the start of 2020, Aerotek announced a strategic shift in its operations with the introduction of three specialized business units to better serve its customers and contractors in which Kelly played an integral part. Then when the outbreak of COVID-19 hit, he assisted other leaders in transitioning the entire Aerotek organization to a remote workplace, ensuring the health and safety of employees while maintaining full business operations for clients and contractors.
In addition to his role with Aerotek, Kelly recently joined CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, a CEO-driven commitment to advancing inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
