Ryan Clark is among the most respected leaders in the staffing industry, known for his fierce commitment to providing outstanding customer service and his tenacious pursuit of excellence. His experience includes over twenty years in staffing as well as extensive experience in sales and sales management.
Ryan spent seven years working at PDI, the world’s largest contract sales organization supporting the pharmaceutical industry, where he was continuously recognized as a top performer and was promoted several times. In 2003, Ryan was hired by a major Philadelphia-based staffing company where he again made immeasurable contributions. Within three months, Ryan turned the unprofitable office into one of the most profitable offices in the company.
In 2005, Ryan co-founded PeopleShare, a regional staffing firm dedicated to placing candidates in light industrial and administrative positions. Ryan’s vision was to create a staffing company that provides employees and customers the opportunity to achieve their goals and enhance their overall success. Having the expertise, industry experience, and resources to recruit the best talent for each and every opportunity have been a critical factor in PeopleShare’s success. Ryan’s determination, drive and talent have propelled PeopleShare into the fastest growing staffing firm in Pennsylvania with 30 locations throughout 6 states (PA, NJ, DE, MD, IL, & VA). The first PeopleShare branch in Pottstown realized immediate success and the company was quickly able to expand, opening 8 more locations by 2012. In 2013, PeopleShare acquired S&R Staffing, giving PeopleShare an even larger footprint in Pennsylvania, and in 2019, expanded into the Virginia market by acquiring Reliance Staffing and the Illinois market by acquiring Best Practices Staffing. Since 2007, PeopleShare has been named “Best Places to Work” by the Philadelphia Business Journal every year and named to the Inc.500/5000 list. In just 10 years, PeopleShare achieved over $100 million in revenue and was subsequently acquired by Trivest Partners, a Private Equity firm based in Coral Gables, Fla. Ryan has been retained as the CEO by Trivest as PeopleShare continues to grow through acquisition and organic growth. Ryan is defined by his passion to build relationships. His leadership, commitment to mentor and motivate his team combined with his on-going desire to understand and identify his clients’ needs have proven to be instrumental to PeopleShare’s success.
