Rebecca Rogers Tijerino Takes Helm to Move Staffing and Consulting Company into Next Phase of Growth


ATLANTA – Sept. 15, 2014 – Coming off a record quarter of company growth, The Intersect Group, a national staffing and consulting firm specializing in finance/accounting and technology, announces industry veteran Rebecca Rogers Tijerino as the company’s new chief executive officer.

Most recently, Rogers Tijerino served as CEO of Astadia, a global business consulting, marketing and technology services company. Rogers Tijerino was previously with Adecco Group NA, where she began as senior vice president and rose to chief sales officer of Adecco Staffing U.S., leading national and international account sales and management, alternative delivery, implementation and supplier diversity. She also held previous executive leadership roles in the staffing and consulting industry with ProStaff and SeatonCorp.

The Intersect Group is on track for another record revenue year in 2014 and remains a top player in its space in the Atlanta and Dallas markets. “I’m fortunate to be coming into a company that has an incredibly impressive track record, particularly with clients,” says Rogers Tijerino. “The caliber of the clientele held by The Intersect Group, coupled with the breadth of engagements and depth of the relationships — is a solid foundation from which to continue to create long term value and growth.”

Inc. magazine has recognized The Intersect Group for five consecutive years as one of the top 500/5000 fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. Leaders from the company are active in organizations such as the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), Financial Executive International (FEI), and the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, The Intersect Group has been named a Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Company by the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter Awards four years in a row. It was also named one of the Nation’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For in 2013 by the National Association for Business Resources (NABR).

“This company is poised to leverage its established success to scale quickly. I am passionate about leading emerging firms to enduring success and eager to come along side this strategic team of experts to catapult The Intersect Group into its next phase of growth and evolution,” Rogers Tijerino concludes.

The Intersect Group’s Advisory Board embarked on a nationwide search earlier this year for a new chief executive officer with deep expertise in steering high-growth firms to long-term success. Rogers Tijerino emerged as the right candidate for the role.  After the transition, Wade Hughes, former CEO, will depart The Intersect Group.
