There, Mr. Paulding developed and lead strategy for rapid sales growth – increasing revenues from $1 million to over $12 million. Having such extensive experience in both staffing and information technology industries, Mr. Paulding has become a subject-matter expert in the areas of recruitment, sales, management and information technology (as it impacts the industry).

Mr. Paulding holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication and Business, and a Master of Science Degree in Technology and Media from Western Illinois University.

Andrew Norstrud, Chief Executive Officer of General Employment, commented, "Bill will be an instrumental leader, not only in the integration of our businesses, but also in the implementation of our business model and expansion of our sales and service offerings. His hands‐on approach to leadership coupled with staffing and IT industry experience, and expertise in areas of business analytics and business process re-engineering will prove highly useful in our expansion efforts in the time ahead."

Bill Paulding stated, "I am excited to join Andrew and GEE at this critical point in the Company's story. As Manager of Business Development and Operations, I will be focused on facilitating the expansion of GEE's brand and service offerings, as well as the integration of new services and businesses coming on board. I look forward to applying my knowledge and successes from STAFFLOGIX to aid GEE in their expansion efforts moving forward."
