DETROIT, February 28, 2017 – Art Knapp, president of Geometric Results, Inc. (GRI), has been named to the prestigious Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) North American Staffing 100 list for 2017. GRI is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MSX International. The list is not a ranking, but a compendium of the industry’s most influential and innovative leaders, as selected by the editorial staff at SIA from nominations across all areas of the contingent labor industry. Those chosen for the 2017 list join the community of SIA greats from the five previous lists and are honored for bringing to the industry leadership and vision that has resulted in creative new solutions, technology applications, and influence on legislation.
“As a 25-year veteran of the non-employee labor industry, it is truly an honor to be recognized by one of its leading advisory and research organizations,” Knapp said. “To know that my peers and employees have faith in my abilities and have taken the time to nominate me is humbling. My tenure at GRI working with such a talented team has given me the chance to lead a group of smart, committed individuals who have generated some of the non-employee labor industry’s most innovative MSP solutions. GRI continues to generate industry-leading solutions that are resulting in new services, which sets us apart,” he said.
With GRI since its inception in 2014, Knapp previously led the MSP division at IQNavigator, which ultimately merged with MSXI’s MSP division to become GRI. He established GRI’s Solutions and Innovation department and his visionary approach to creating a shared services delivery center that has morphed into GRI’s global SDC, both industry firsts. These, along with his long-term successes with more than 200 global clients are just a few of the reasons Art was chosen. “Our entire company is proud of Art’s commitment to GRI and his dedication to making this young company an industry leader. His recognition by SIA shows that non-employee labor experts recognize his important contributions,” said MSXI President and CEO Fred Minturn. “Under Art’s leadership, GRI will continue to grow and bring even more innovation to the industry.”
