Kelly’s Corona steps down as president and CEO, Quigley steps up

George Corona (pictured), president and CEO at recruitment giant Kelly Services, is to step down from 30 September 2019 and will be succeeded by Peter Quigley.

The move, announced late yesterday, sees executive vice president Quigley taking up his role from 1 October, at which time he will also join Kelly’s board.

Corona, who announced plans to step down as part of his planned retirement, will serve as a non-executive employee of the company, in a transition and advisory capacity, until his retirement in early 2020. He will remain a member of Kelly’s board.

Corona was named president and CEO of Kelly Services in May 2017, after more than 20 years in a variety of roles at the company, including eight years as executive VP and chief operating officer. 

Quigley currently serves as Kelly’s representative on the board of directors of Japanese staffing and solutions company Persol Holdings and as a board member of PersolKelly, the company’s joint venture with Persol.
