Shiftgig sees a shift in top management
September 20th, 2017
There’s a shift in management at Shiftgig, the Chicago-based company that connects shift workers to the hospitality, event marketing, retail and logistics industries.
Wade Burgess, who’s headed the talent solutions division of LinkedIn, has been named CEO and current CEO and co-founder Eddie Lou becomes executive chairman.
“For the past 18 months, I’ve been looking for a person in Chicago who believes in our vision and who can help build the company faster and better than I can because of their experience,” Lou said.
He found it in Burgess.
The Chicago tech leader is credited with helping LinkedIn grow its sales teams in the United States and Europe before becoming global head of talent solutions–the company’s largest business unit. It’s the part of the company that helps companies hire workers.
