Editor’s note: Each issue of the Influential Women enewsletter will feature a profile of one of the Business Journal’s reigning 50 Most Influential Women in West Michigan. The profile first appeared in the event program.
In the last five years, Amy Marshall has demonstrated herself to be a highly motivated individual who strives for excellence both personally and professionally.
Since joining Management Business Solutions in Grand Rapids in February 2009 as a part-time recruiting assistant during the economic downturn, Marshall has proven her resourcefulness and passion for finding qualified professionals to meet client needs and staffing requirements.
Fast-tracked during her first year to a lead recruiter role, Marshall put in hours of hard work toward learning the business, as she pursued a unique opportunity to be part of the Five-Year Employee Ownership Plan.
She has been able to build a successful team of committed recruiters, develop a thriving internship program and gain the trust of long-lasting repeat clients.
She expects to be officially onboard as a part-owner of Management Business Solutions in February 2014 and looks forward to growing the business and working to attract and retain talent in West Michigan.
Marshall also continues to serve as an inspiration for other young professionals, giving back to the Grand Rapids community and serving on many boards and committees. Among them, she counts current service as the youngest board secretary ever for the American Red Cross, where she also has co-chaired its largest fundraiser for the past three years, raising more than $150,000.
She is also board secretary and events chair for the West Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and has joined the advisory board for Grand Rapids Young Professionals after four years of board leadership for the organization.
