Steckerl, LaRocque and Gutmacher are new additions to an executive management team recognized by the talent management industry as a source for recruitment marketing innovation and an advocate for virtuous recruiting. The team is led by Arbita's CEO and Founder, Don Ramer.

"Arbita is a force to be reckoned with," said Ramer. "Shally [Steckerl] and Glenn [Gutmacher] are known to recruiters as two of the most valuable minds in our space. And everybody knows George [LaRocque] is among the best sales and marketing executives around - look at his track record. Together with our existing team, these folks comprise the most effective management group in the industry. We're all very excited about what we will accomplish in 2009 and beyond."

Steckerl, who was JobMachine’s founder and "Chief Cybersleuth,” has emerged as one of the most respected authorities on sourcing and reaches tens of thousands of recruiters on a regular basis through his popular seminars, onsite workshops and webinars. As executive vice president for Arbita, he will focus on growing the company's recruiter development services
