Founder and former chairman and chief executive officer of Helpmates Staffing Services, Dan Struve, CSP; and ASA senior counsel Ed Lenz, Esq., are the newest inductees into the ASA Leadership Hall of Fame, the organization announced today.
A visionary and standout leader in staffing for decades, Struve co-founded the Independent Staffing Services Association and was a champion for the ASA certification program. “Dan Struve is a pillar of the staffing and recruiting industry,” said Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer at ASA. “Dan’s commitment as a volunteer to advancing the interests of the staffing industry at the state and national level for more than 40 years is unparalleled. We are all in Dan’s debt for his selfless contributions as a leader, mentor, and advocate.”
Lenz is one of the nation’s leading authorities on the legal and policy aspects of staffing and recruiting and was the industry’s chief legal and legislative strategist. “Ed has dedicated his life to serving the needs of the staffing and recruiting industry,” Wahlquist said. “Ed’s leadership and advocacy on legal and legislative issues has shaped labor and employment laws affecting the industry for decades. We are all delighted that our good friend and colleague has been selected for this well-deserved honor and recognition.”
Created in 1985, the ASA Leadership Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding individual contributions made through dedicated service to ASA and the staffing and recruiting industry. This year’s honorees will be recognized during a ceremony at Staffing World®, Oct. 25–27 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. If you can’t be there in person for the ASA annual convention and expo, you can attend virtually. The ASA Leadership Hall of Fame at Staffing World 2022 is sponsored by Nixer Comp.
