Fyre Announces Creation of Strategic Advisory Board, Appoints Workforce Management Industry Veterans

Staffing software company Fyre announced today the formation of an Advisory Board and the appointment of four prestigious workforce management industry experts to provide guidance on market growth, product strategy and innovation. The Advisory Board was created to help guide the company through its recent growth. Fyre has grown exponentially since the March launch of Sync, its flagship VMS product which integrates with virtually every leading VMS, with transaction volume increasing more than 1400 percent month-over-month.

The company momentum includes managing a growing client list that touts seven of Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2015 largest staffing firms as well as the first ranked firm on their 2015 list of fastest-growing US staffing firms.

“Although we have been operating in stealth mode in order to keep up with demand, we are now at the point where we are thinking about our next stage of growth,” said Fyre CEO Tim Arnold. “The creation of our Advisory Board is a huge step forward for Fyre and I am more excited than ever about our future plans. It’s truly an honor that this esteemed group of individuals believes in our potential.”

The board, comprised of top-tier experts from across the talent management spectrum, includes:

  • Teresa Creech, CEO, ICon Professional Services, is the driver behind ICon’s aggressive 30+ percent growth. With over 20 years of experience in human capital management, Creech has been recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts as one of the ‘100 Most Influential People in Staffing’ for the last four years.
  • Doug Leeby, President, Beeline, is admired throughout the staffing industry and has been on Staffing Industry Analysts’ list of the ‘100 Most Influential People in Staffing’ every year since 2012. Beeline supports companies and members of the extended workforce in more than 50 countries.
  • Ron Litton, Senior Vice President of Sales, Beeline, has over 18 years of experience in sales and sales management in the VMS, MSP and staffing markets. Litton has cultivated relationships with many of the recognized brands at the foundation of Beeline’s success.
  • Roeland Van Dessel, Founder, Anro BVBA, Board Member, Bakker & Partners, is an international recruiting software expert. Van Dessel is best known throughout the staffing industry for his work at Adecco and Allegis Group in sales, business development and general management.

“I am enthusiastic about the future of Fyre and the opportunity to work with the top-notch Advisory Board they have put together,” commented Beeline President Doug Leeby. “I look forward to playing an instrumental role in helping the Fyre team discover new ways to add more value to its growing customer base and the staffing industry as a whole.”
