DALLAS, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Greg Barnes has joined the OneHundredX family as President/Founder of CrossMatch Talent Solutions (www.crossmatchtalent.com). CrossMatch Talent Solutions was established by OneHundredX to provide retained executive search, interim executive management and talent solutions consulting services, exclusively to the global faith-based non-profit sector. Greg comes to CrossMatch Talent Solutions with 25 years of experience in the area of executive search and strategic talent acquisitions, most recently as a senior leader with Korn/Ferry International (NYSE: KFY), the largest and best known executive search firm in the world.
Tom Wilson, President and CEO of OneHundredX, says, "This is an exciting day for OneHundredX. Not only are we partnering with a high caliber person like Greg to deliver much needed services to our historic network of Christian missions, ministries and service organizations, but he is launching our first for-profit business housed in OneHundredX Ventures, LLC." Under Greg's leadership, CrossMatch Talent Solutions will provide a low-cost service model to generate revenues that will ultimately serve as a key funding source for OneHundredX and its operating divisions, Halftime and Leadership Network.
Greg explains, "The vision of CrossMatch Talent Solutions revolves around the increasing gap between the need for talent and the pool of talent available to the faith-based nonprofit world. We are well positioned to connect talented Christian leaders with the global faith-based non-profit organizations that need them to accomplish daring Kingdom objectives. CrossMatch Talent Solutions is in perfect alignment with the missions of both Halftime and Leadership Network, who have more than two decades of work with churches and high capacity marketplace leaders."
Wilson stated, "In Greg's search for a 'second half' of significance, he sensed that God's call on his life was to use his 'first half' gifts and skills to serve the Kingdom. Having Greg build this business 'inside' OneHundredX Ventures, not only was an answer to his prayers, it also aligned perfectly with our mission of accelerating the impact of OneHundredX leaders." Greg will initially be joined by Donny Howell, and eventually will add additional staff members as the organization grows. Greg and his wife Rachel currently live in Houston, but will relocate to Dallas. They have three grown children.
