Detroit-based global IT and business services firm Strategic Staffing Solutions, Inc. (S3) announced the naming of Edward Mannino as its Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately.
Mannino will replace Paul Huxley, who is retiring after 18 years as CFO of the firm. Mannino joined S3 as its Vice President for finance in 2009 after an extensive career that includes more than 20 years experience in the staffing industry.
“In the year that Ed has been with S3 has become clear that he is the ideal person to move into the CFO slot, now that Paul has decided to retire from day-to-day involvement with the company,” said S3 President and CEO Cynthia J. Pasky. “As our CFO for 18 years, Paul has played a critical role on the team that has produced 20 consecutive years of growth for S3. Ed has shown in the past year that he is fully prepared to continue that role as we continue to grow.”
Mannino said, “I’m honored by the confidence Cindy and Paul have shown in me and I am eager to do my part to continue S3‘s record of success, both in this country and internationally. The corporate culture at S3 is one that encourages everyone to make the most of their talents and I look forward to working to enhance that atmosphere in the coming years.”
Huxley said he will continue with S3 on a part-time basis and will remain as chair of the S3 board of directors and continue to be responsible for liaison with shareholders. He also will continue his work for a variety of non-profits, including continuing to serve as First Vice Chair of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
“Ed has made a tremendous difference for S3 in the year that he has been with us, and I’m confident he is the ideal person to step into the CFO role,” Huxley said. “In the past year he has worked tirelessly to improve our financial reporting and strengthen the financial team and I know S3 is in good hands with him at the financial controls.
“Being a part of S3 for so many years has been a simply amazing experience,”
Huxley said. “Growing from a start-up company to one of the industry’s leaders has required nearly constant work, worry, innovation, good fortune and an unshakable belief in what S3stands for and strives to be–a good company that creates opportunity for its people, deals fairly with its customers and most of all supports the communities in which it does business.”
Mannino joined S3 in May 2009. His prior experience includes serving as Vice President and CFO of APX International; Vice President-Financial Services, Americas for MSX International and as director and corporate controller and then as executive manager of finance, manufacturing and prototype group for Modern Engineering Service Company. He is a Certified Public Accountant and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Ferris State University.
