TrueBlue has announced some changes to its executive team, with Sean Ebner replacing Wayne Larkin as president of PeopleReady.
PeopleReady is a $1.6 billion TrueBlue subsidiary brand specializing in temporary day labor for construction and light industry. Larkin introduced PeopleReady for TrueBlue in October last year.
Now, Ebner — previously the president of physician staffing firm Staff Care — takes the brand’s reins.
“Sean has a strong track record of success in staffing and workforce solutions management,” said TrueBlue COO Patrick Beharelle. “His broad experience across multiple staffing disciplines, sales leadership, business operations, and technology innovation make him an excellent addition to our executive team.”
Ebner’s staffing experience extends beyond the medical field. Prior to joining Staff Care, he successfully led a division within Technisource, which is a subsidiary of Randstad, the second largest staffing company in the world.
“Throughout his career, Sean has a track record of delivering top line and bottom line growth while achieving exceptional service delivery to clients and associates,” Beharelle said. “We are pleased to have Sean leading the PeopleReady organization.”
Larkin is taking on a new enterprise-wide role in the company: executive vice president of strategic accounts, where he will focus on cross-selling TrueBlue’s products to the company’s largest clients.
“Wayne is a recognized leader in our industry and has strong, longstanding relationships with our staffing clients,” said Beharelle. “He will be introducing all our capabilities—staffing, workforce management, and recruitment process outsourcing, to our clients to make sure they have the talent they need to grow their business.”
