Chris Pullen was appointed group chief executive of Staffline in January 2018. He joined the company in 2015 and was initially responsible for group mergers and acquisitions. He was designated as group CFO and an executive member of the board in 2016. He is also a member of the nominations committee. The company went on an acquisition spree last year — including, most recently, Grafton Recruitment’s Irish business Passionate about People — all the while undergoing a transformation plan during the fiscal year. The past fiscal year also saw the company face numerous challenges, but Pullen is confident in the company’s plans to return to growth in 2019.
