DENVER, Colo. – Nov. 18, 2020 – Fastaff Travel Nursing announces the inclusion of Chief Operating Officer Laurie Reichert to the Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2020 Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing list.
“Laurie is one of the most accomplished executives in the staffing industry, and is very deserving of this recognition,” said Bart Valdez, chief executive officer at Fastaff. “Her leadership since joining Fastaff has been instrumental in helping Fastaff to rapidly deploy nurses during the COVID-19 crisis, maintain efficient and scalable operations, and continue to increase our revenues year-over-year.”
In its sixth consecutive year, Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2020 Global Power 150 list honors the most influential women in the staffing industry.
Arriving at Fastaff in 2019 as chief operating officer, Reichert brings more than 20 years of successful leadership experience building word-class, high-performing recruitment and sales teams, particularly in turn-around situations. She’s held similar leadership roles at several staffing companies, including two of the industry’s largest firms, where she served as the chief architect for three major reorganizations, each resulting in increased sales, reduced SG&A, stronger alignment and continuity across teams and segments.
Most notably, the operational efficiencies enacted under Laurie’s direction since joining the company in 2019 have enabled Fastaff’s dramatic impact in the fight against COVID, with almost twice as many experienced nurses deployed year-over-year, many of whom arrive in 24-48 hours to hospitals and communities in need.
