Lorien appoints Jo Fagbadegun as Sales Director
Lorien, part of the global Impellam Group, has announced the appointment of Joanna (Jo) Fagbadegun as their Sales Director. Jo joins with over 15 years’ talent acquisition and recruitment outsourcing experience; most recently leading Sales, Solutions, and Bids for Resource Solutions, where she was an integral member of the senior leadership team. She has worked with a number of established and growing organisations across a range of industries, including technology, financial services, pharmaceuticals, and professional services.
With a 40-year track record, Lorien is one of the UK’s largest providers of technology recruitment solutions. With the latest Tech Nation report showing the industry expanding 260% faster than the rest of the economy, securing the right skills in this candidate-short sector continues to be one of the biggest challenges for businesses. Tailored recruitment partnerships can enable businesses to better reach and engage with talent that is the lifeblood of their growth. Fagbadegun believes Lorien’s specialist approach will be crucial for businesses of all sizes:
“In a world where the war for the top tech talent shows no sign of abating, organisations want to partner with talent acquisition specialists whom they can trust. I’m excited to be joining a company that has such an exceptional portfolio of long-term clients across a wide range of sectors. This shows the level of trust their customers have in Lorien’s ability to successfully deliver against their tech talent acquisition needs, as a result of Lorien’s deep experience and reach.
I’m passionate about enabling a culture of openness and inclusion, not just within my own organisation but for the businesses we support. I’m thrilled to be working for a company like Lorien that promotes and supports diversity within tech for their customers, and is also diverse and inclusive at every layer of their own organisation.”
Claire Marsh, CEO of Lorien Resourcing, said:
“From my first meeting with Jo it was clear she’d be a great fit for Lorien. She is an insightful, trusted, and future-focused leader with experience in developing regional and global teams. We know that technology is a key strategic driver for businesses in almost every industry, and many customers are looking for specialist expertise in attracting and retaining talent in this area. Jo’s breadth of experience will provide Lorien with even more capability to devise and deliver solutions that meet the individual needs of each customer and, in doing so, help them to achieve their strategic technology objectives.”
