Graebel Evolves Business Development Leaders’ Roles to Accelerate Global Growth

Graebel Companies, Inc., a leading provider of talent and workplace mobility solutions for Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, is evolving the roles of two business development leaders to focus on global growth opportunities to further serve clients and seize marketplace opportunities.

George Bates, GMS, Graebel’s Chief Revenue Officer, maintains his senior leadership title but expands his current global strategy, sales and marketing responsibilities to include a greater emphasis on new market development initiatives that may include acquisitions or partnerships. In addition, Joe Jackson, CRP, GMS, who reports to Bates, has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Business Development – Americas, to manage continued growth in North America and support increased demand in Latin America.

“Graebel’s strong performance and our clients’ global mobility needs are fueling new opportunities and avenues for growth,” Bates said. “We’re in a tremendous position to accelerate our market share and deliver more services in more places to provide exceptional experiences to our clients and their employees. My increased focus on new market development is in keeping with how we continually transform and evolve our company to anticipate and capitalize on what’s next in global mobility.”
