Chief Executive Officer
Sue Marks is founder and CEO of Pinstripe, Inc., a privately‐held, venture‐backed HR and Recruitment Process Outsourcing firm. She works tirelessly to ensure the fulfillment of the company’s mission to help Pinstripe’s clients win the war for talent so they can win in the markets they serve.
Sue grew up in the recruiting business, literally. As early as she can remember she spent her evenings listening to her dad make recruiting calls for Management Recruiters (now MRI). Immediately following college, she entered the search and recruiting business. After four years of learning the best of recruiting and entrepreneurship, she started her own business, which grew to be the largest independent provider of recruiting and staffing services in Southeastern Wisconsin. Along the way she broke new ground by offering alternative recruiting services (later to be known as RPO), to large organizations in competition with traditional staffing and recruiting services. Sue and her teams have designed, implemented and operated outsourced recruiting programs for many of the world’s great brands.
Sue’s visionary thinking, creative problem solving and ability to motivate and inspire people are the foundation of Pinstripe’s corporate culture and client relationships. She is widely recognized as one of the key founders of recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and a pioneer in the RPO industry. She has helped clients to become recruiting powerhouses, upgrading their talent and increasing their success in the market and in any market, regardless of the economic times.
Sue sits on several profit and not‐for‐profit boards. She is the President of Competitive Wisconsin, Inc. and an active member of the Young President’s Organization, Marquette University’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Golden Angel Network, the Milwaukee Public Museum, the HR Outsourcing Association (HROA), and the RPO Alliance.
She has been named an HR Outsourcing Superstar by the industry’s prominent trade magazine five years consecutively, and was recognized as Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year in the service business category. She is the winner of the Marquette University College of Business Administration’s Alumni Award for Entrepreneurship and a three‐time winner of both the Working Woman 500 designation and the Future 50 of Wisconsin. Sue earned her Bachelor of Science in business administration from Marquette University and is an annual participant in YPO’s prestigious executive education program at Harvard Business School.
