Experienced leader takes the helm in key North American market
NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER 2023: PageGroup, a global recruitment giant listed on the FTSE 250 and renowned for its flagship brand, Michael Page, has just announced the appointment of Kurt Jeskulski as the Managing Director for the United States and Canada.
With nearly two decades of experience in leadership roles within the company, Jeskulski is stepping into his new role, succeeding Nicholas Kirk, who previously helmed the North American and UK operations before assuming the position of PageGroup’s CEO in January 2023.
Jeskulski’s journey in the recruitment industry commenced with positions at both Ajilon and Korn Ferry. In 2004, he joined Michael Page as a Manager when the firm was primarily concentrated in the Tri-state area, boasting a modest headcount of fewer than 70 employees, mainly focused on finance and banking. Since then, the company has witnessed explosive growth, establishing successful operational branches nationwide, spanning various sectors from real estate and construction to technology. Under Jeskulski’s leadership on the North American board, where he oversaw the East Coast operations, the recruitment company has continuously surged ahead, achieving record-breaking years in 2021 and 2022, contributing 11% of the Group’s global gross profit.
In his new capacity, Jeskulski will assume oversight of the North American board, tasked with charting the strategic course for one of the Group’s most promising markets. His deep-rooted familiarity with the North American recruitment landscape and a robust grasp of the company’s inner workings will ensure its pivotal role in the Group’s ongoing success.
Nicholas Kirk, PageGroup CEO, expressed, “Kurt’s influence on the development and prosperity of our business in the US & Canada is immeasurable. My new responsibilities and focus have created a vital opening in one of our key high-potential markets, and I have full confidence that Kurt will excel in steering the business here. I’m thrilled to maintain a close collaborative relationship with Kurt to further propel success in the region.”
Kurt Jeskulski, the newly appointed Managing Director for the US & Canada at PageGroup, remarked, “After two decades with Page, it is a privilege to embrace this role and lead our exceptional teams across the US & Canada. I eagerly anticipate collaborating closely with our local leadership team to continue building upon the achievements we have already accomplished here.”
