ASA Appoints DeLibra Wesley to Board of Directors

At its meeting this week, the ASA board of directors appointed DeLibra Wesley, founder and chief executive officer of Texas-based National Recruiting Consultants, to fill its open seat. Wesley previously was part of the leadership team at the Delta Cos., where her nearly 14-year tenure progressed to the role of chief operating officer of the company.

“DeLibra is an exceptional leader, and the ASA board of directors and I are looking forward to the insights, perspectives, and passion that she will bring to our association and industry in her new role,” said ASA president and CEO Richard Wahlquist.

Wesley will serve the remainder of the unexpired term for the seat vacated when former chairman Dan Struve retired, and she will be presented to the ASA membership at Staffing World® 2021 in Denver to be considered for a full three-year term.
