DETROIT — Strategic Staffing Solutions President and CEO Cynthia J. Pasky has received the Global Lithuanian Award for 2013 for the contributions she and her company have made to the development of Lithuanian business, science, arts, and culture.
“Cynthia Pasky is directly responsible for significant achievements in attracting foreign investment to Lithuania, creating a positive brand for Lithuania in the world, and educational and professional development of Lithuanian talent,” said Kotryna StankutÄ—-JašÄemskienÄ—, director of Global Lithuanian Leaders. “She and her company have been passionate and steadfast champions of Lithuania in the world. They have earned huge respect in the local business community and with the prominent leaders who nominated her for the award.”
S3 opened its European operation, S3I, in 1999 in Lithuania. That country was chosen because geographically it can serve S3’s customers in the Baltic and Nordic States and throughout Europe. In addition, Lithuania’s fast growing economy and membership in the European Union and NATO allowed the company to expand its customer support across Europe. In the past four years, S3I has placed more than 1,800 consultants with major companies in the region.
“It is indeed an honor to receive this award, but it is not about what I have done,” said Pasky, who is of Lithuanian descent. “It is about what the S3 team has done not only to further our business in Lithuania but also to give back to the Lithuanian community.”
S3I provides services to companies in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Slovakia and Sweden. The company offers its customers system development services, information technology consulting and staffing services, and customized project solutions.
