CHICAGO, March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP Fieldglass, the global cloud technology leader in services procurement and external workforce management, today announced that President Rob Brimm and Chief Technology Officer Vish Baliga have been named to Staffing Industry Analysts' 2016 Staffing 100 list, honoring their notable contributions to the industry over the past year.
This year's Staffing 100 designation is the first for Brimm and Baliga, who have worked together to lead SAP Fieldglass to its most successful year to date in 2015.
Brimm, who joined SAP Fieldglass in 2004, has acted as a key stakeholder in the development of the company from a promising technology startup to a global, leading VMS provider. During his tenure, Brimm has helped grow sales by 1,200 percent and its customer base by 600 percent. He ascended to the role of president in mid-2015, and is now responsible for steering the company's direction.
Baliga, CTO at SAP Fieldglass, has played an integral role in SAP Fieldglass' success since joining the company shortly after its inception. Baliga guides product strategy, helping to maintain its focus on technology innovation while seamlessly working with other SAP companies to introduce new functionality and integrations to joint customers.
"Having Vish and myself named to this list is a huge honor for the entire SAP Fieldglass organization," Brimm said. "It speaks to the strength of our leadership team and the respect SAP Fieldglass enjoys as an innovator within the services procurement and external workforce management industry."
"The Staffing 100 is an acknowledgment of those individuals shaping the world of work, and a commendation by their peers of their accomplishments in actively driving the industry," said Subadhra Sriram, editor and publisher at Staffing Industry Analysts. "Some have lent their vision to new pathways for managing talent and engaging solutions across the workforce ecosystem and with respect to the human cloud. Others have taken on challenges, have shown impressive growth or have been instrumental in key legislation; all included, be they veterans to our list or first-timers, raise the bar for the industry as a whole."
