Livonia, Mich. (PRWEB) February 24, 2009
AllianceQ, the recruitment collaboration of Fortune 500 companies, announced today the appointment of Stephen A. Lowisz as Chairman. Lowisz is CEO and Founder of Qualigence, a highly-respected recruitment research and professional search firm headquartered in Livonia, Michigan.
AllianceQ was launched in mid-2008 as a collaboration of industry-leading Fortune 500 companies that attract millions of job candidates each year. The objective of the Alliance is to help job candidates connect with other employers (especially pertinent in these tough times), and to drive down their future recruiting costs. Through AllianceQ, these companies share job candidates they cannot hire, giving each member access to more talent and giving job candidates access to many more precisely matched opportunities with other employers.
AllianceQ is limited to 100 member companies which currently include Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP), ARAMARK, Bayer, Baxter, Best Buy Co. Inc., Entergy Corporation, FPL Group (Florida Power & Light Company, FPL Energy), Hewitt, Sears Holdings Corporation, Starbucks, and Wachovia Corporation. The member list is growing fast – 56 of the 100 are now taken – but there are still opportunities for interested organizations to get involved and utilize the benefits which include helping job seekers in this economy as well as significantly reducing their future recruitment costs.
The selection of Lowisz was announced by Jason Kerr, President and CEO of QuietAgent, the software organization responsible for powering the technology behind AllianceQ. “Having the right leadership with a certain depth of expertise and experience is critical to the success of AllianceQ,” Kerr said. “Steve is a respected leader in the recruitment industry with the kind of knowledge and insight that will help AllianceQ continue to grow and innovate.”
Chairperson responsibilities include actively promoting the Alliance, facilitating and leading the quarterly Board of Governors meetings, acting as a respected bi-partisan liaison between Alliance members and the Board, developing Alliance objectives, and being a consultant that provides recommendations for Alliance success.
“Being Chairperson for AllianceQ is not only a great opportunity but a natural fit given my experience in the industry,” stated Lowisz “ I believe in the value of what the Alliance brings to member organization, as well as candidates, and have already begun to introduce many of my own clients to the Alliance and it’s benefits.”
