MILWAUKEE, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) announced today that John "Jack" T. McGinnis, 49, has been appointed ManpowerGroup Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, effective February 15, 2016. McGinnis joins from Morgan Stanley where he was Global Controller responsible for financial accounting and controls, SEC and regulatory reporting, financial planning and analysis, and the finance function for their large U.S. Bank. McGinnis was previously CFO, HSBC North America Holdings Inc., and before that was Partner at Ernst & Young LLP. Michael Van Handel will retire from his role as CFO and become Senior Executive Vice President, effective the same day. Both will report to Jonas Prising, Chairman and CEO.
"I'm delighted to welcome Jack to the ManpowerGroup Executive Leadership Team," said Prising. "He brings world-class financial, commercial, strategic and investor relations experience. He also has significant experience working with boards and audit committees across large, sophisticated, global platforms, and is the right cultural fit for ManpowerGroup. I have great confidence in Jack's capabilities and leadership and look forward to him continuing to strengthen our financial discipline and performance."
Van Handel, 56, joined ManpowerGroup in 1989 and has served as CFO since 1998. He will remain with the company at least through 2016 and in his new role will be responsible for investor relations and ensuring a successful CFO transition.
Van Handel has played a leading role in taking ManpowerGroup from an $8B temporary staffing company, operating in 50 countries with one brand, to a $20B global provider of innovative workforce solutions operating in 80 countries under four brands – Manpower, Experis, ManpowerGroup Solutions and Right Management. Van Handel is regularly recognized for his financial expertise, most recently as the Institutional Investor magazine's 'America's Best CFO for Business and Professional Services' which he has been awarded every year since 2005.
"Mike's impressive leadership, financial acumen and operational discipline have been invaluable to us for almost three decades," said Prising. "He has done an outstanding job in his role operationally and in raising ManpowerGroup's profile in the investor community, enhancing investor confidence with clearly articulated strategies, aimed at creating shareholder value. His leadership is not limited to his role as a successful CFO but also as an outstanding corporate leader who has embodied our company's culture of strong ethics and continued dedication to doing well by doing good. I want to recognize and thank Mike for his accomplishments as CFO and significant contributions to making ManpowerGroup a global leader in our industry."
Van Handel commented: "I feel very fortunate to have served in the role of CFO and to have had the opportunity to work with a world-class management team leading ManpowerGroup through such a successful journey. I'm looking forward to working with Jack and ensuring a smooth transition. I'm confident that with Jack's leadership and with the strength of our finance team, we'll continue the strong financial legacy of the company with a clear focus on creating shareholder value."
McGinnis said: "I'm thrilled to be joining ManpowerGroup at an exciting time as we continue our journey as the leading workforce solutions company. I'm looking forward to delivering world class results for both clients and candidates, finding work for millions of people every year, and doing that alongside the talented finance and management teams at ManpowerGroup."
