Robert A. Funk, founder, chairman of the board, and CEO of Express Employment Professionals and Express Franchising Named to the International Franchise Association's Hall of Fame.

Express offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to join a professional business to business franchise.

The founder, chairman of the board, and chief executive officer of Express Employment Professionals was recently named to the International Franchise Association’s Hall of Fame, a prestigious honor Robert A. Funk now shares with 34 other distinguished executives.

This is the IFA’s most long-standing and highest award. It is given to franchising leaders who exemplify the best in franchising and contribute greatly to the franchising community. It also honors those who help advance franchising as a business opportunity.

In 1983, Funk co-founded Express Employment Professionals. The international franchised staffing company helps put 300,000 people to work each year in four countries, including the U.S., Canada, South Africa and Australia.

Express offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to join a professional business to business franchise. The staffing industry allows our franchisees to work with clients and job seekers internationally in one of our 550 franchised locations.

Staffing as a business is anticipated to grow this year, as the economic outlook improves and employers hire temporary workers first to meet the increases in demand. According to the American Staffing Association, the staffing industry experiences growth about 3-6 months before the rest of the economy.

“It is truly a dream realized to have my leadership of Express honored in this way and at this time,” Funk said. “We are providing jobs to thousands of people in this economy, fulfilling our mission of helping people succeed continues each and every day.”
