Crosworks has had tremendous success in helping individual clients find their ‘right’ job, and in supporting organizations big and small as they build teams, develop leaders, improve productivity, and yield tangible results. I’m looking forward to extending our reach and taking Crosworks to the next level.”
Celia Crossley, who has lead the company since founding it in 1981, said, “I’m so pleased to be working with our new owner. Shelly’s innate talent management and leadership skills are major assets for Crosworks. Throughout her career, Shelly has put the highest priority in guiding her employees into jobs where they could best succeed and find the greatest satisfaction. Now, Shelly is focused on coaching new clients here, and on Crosworks’ strategic growth. It’s an exciting time, both for the company and for me, as I will continue to work alongside Shelly.”
