SIA Recognizes Staffmark Group's Joshua Smith in Staffing's 40 Under 40


CINCINNATI, OH - Staffmark Group is pleased to announce that Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) has named their senior vice president, Joshua Smith, to the 2019 40 Under 40 list. The list, now in its third year, recognizes rising stars in workforce solutions who are moving the industry forward.

Smith is senior vice president of Advantage xPO, a member of Staffmark Group and sister company to Staffmark. Smith's career progression is a testament to his hard work and dedication. He began his career with Staffmark Group in a temporary contract role for their Pro Staff brand. When that assignment ended, he was offered a full-time position as a talent manager. A little over a decade and multiple promotions later, Smith was chosen to lead Staffmark Group's Advantage xPO operating company. Since then, Smith has secured several new contracts, including expansion into the education and financial sectors.

"We are thrilled that Joshua has received this recognition from Staffing Industry Analysts," said Geno Cutolo, CEO of Staffmark Group. "We've set some audacious goals for Advantage xPO to innovate and grow, and with Joshua's leadership, I am confident this team will crush every objective."

SIA's 2019 40 Under 40 list includes individuals from a variety of industry segments who are making an impact with their strategic vision and motivation to grow their team, companies, and the industry. The list is not a ranking, but a recognition of dedicated professionals in companies operating in the United States who drive progress and generate value. The list will also be included in the July/August 2019 issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine.
