New association benefits executives and businesses nationwide.

I firmly believe that creating a valuable business is directly tied to building relationships and seeking input from trusted business leaders

Secure Talent, a national 1099 compliance and payrolling services provider, announces the formation of a nationwide executive advisory board, the Secure Talent Executive Advisory Board. Currently, the board is seeking senior business leaders in technology, legal, staffing, auditing and procurement to fill remaining advisory board roles.

Through the assembly of prominent business experts from a broad cross-section of industries across the United States, the Secure Talent Executive Advisory Board will serve as an overall market indicator of emerging trends, risks and opportunities. The board will not only provide a forum for members, but will act as a resource for local business owners and professionals through leadership outreach.

Jeff Phelps, president and founder of Secure Talent, established the advisory board to create a stronger, more unified business community. "I firmly believe that creating a valuable business is directly tied to building relationships and seeking input from trusted business leaders," says Phelps.

He adds, "The executive advisory board exists to support local business communities by taking a proactive approach to establishing best practices."

Serving in executive positions with companies such as Yahoo! Inc., MobiTV, Inc. and the Automobile Club of Southern California (AAA), newest board members are experts in their respective fields. Board members are presently located in California; however, the association is targeting additional members from across the United States to ensure a national focus.

Cheryl M. Van is the board’s authority on employee development. Formerly vice president of talent acquisition at Yahoo! Inc.’s organization development and learning sector, Van was responsible for helping the company create a more efficient process for talent
acquisition and development.

Lynda Ward Pierce of MobiTV, Inc. joins the board as its human resources specialist. Ward Pierce’s role as vice president of human resources at MobiTV requires her to oversee the design and implementation of all human resources policies and procedures for the company.

Vicki Foshee, vice president of direct sales at the Automobile Club of Southern California (AAA), serves as the board’s sales and customer service expert. In her role at AAA, Foshee leads three sales centers, managing territories in Southern California, Texas, New Mexico, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Northern New England.

The board is meeting on Dec. 12, 2007, in San Francisco, Calif., to discuss 2008 initiatives. Phelps anticipates the announcement of additional board members in the first quarter of 2008.
