Under Spencer Wreford’s leadership as CEO, London-based Empresaria Group plc is investing in its central team and rationalizing its business with a focus on its core brands. Wreford joined the international specialist staffing group in 2010 as group finance director and added the COO role in 2017; he was promoted to CEO in May 2018. Wreford has led six investments to bring new brands into the group, including last year’s majority stake in Peru’s Grupo Solimano. Empresaria posted consecutive record profit levels for the last four years, with 2018 reaching record levels of net fee income, profit and conversion ratio.
