Boston, July 24, 2019 – Sevenstep announced today that Executive Director Koye Adejumo has been named to Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2019 40 Under 40 list. Each year, SIA recognizes 40 up-and-coming leaders making their mark on the workforce solutions ecosystem.
“Be it through placing people, designing solutions, transforming perceptions, innovating business models or disrupting the status quo, these rising stars stand out for their hard work and ability to turn possibility into reality, for their passionate and collaborative mindset, and for their focus on creating value across the board,” said Subadhra Sriram, Editor & Publisher at SIA. “We are excited to honor this year’s 40 Under 40 and to celebrate their diverse contributions and leadership.”
Adejumo, who has served as a global leader in talent acquisition for nearly 10 years, has quickly built a reputation for his strong work ethic, innovation and unwavering dedication to client and colleague relationships. Throughout his tenure at Sevenstep, Adejumo has been at the forefront of RPO solutions that have consistently produced transformative results and value.
“Koye is a great representative of the Sevenstep brand and our commitment to be unbounded in our solutions but also in our mindset and general approach to everyday talent acquisition challenges. He is resourceful, smart, an infectious mentor and leader, but also, simply put, a great human being,” said Amy Bush, President of Sevenstep. “We feel very strongly about promoting and growing talent within the business and we are beyond fortunate to have Koye as part of our leadership team. To have his contributions to the industry recognized by SIA as a top 40 Under 40 is well-deserved and a true honor.”
This fall, Adejumo, who has been based in London and primarily supporting Sevenstep’s EMEA and APAC clients, will be relocating to Boston, where Sevenstep’s global headquarters are located.
“I look forward to continuing to build out our best-in-class reporting practice at Sevenstep, and I continue to be excited about the opportunities in the recruitment and RPO industries,” said Adejumo. “RPO has been seen as an emerging sector for a while now, but the practical application of AI to our business along with the innovation taking place across all of HR technology has resulted in unprecedented possibility and growth in the market. I’m excited to be at the forefront of all of it.”
