PRO Unlimited, an Integrated Workforce Management Platform Provider, Welcomes Jessica Kane as Chief Client Officer
San Francisco, CA — October 14, 2021 Renovata & Company is pleased to announce the placement of Jessica Kane as chief client officer for PRO Unlimited. With 30 years of organic, double-digit, profitable growth, PRO offers a modern workforce management solution supported by data, software and services, and has built an industry-leading platform that employs more than 2,000 individuals across 12 offices and manages labor spend in 40 countries.
In June 2021, EQT Partners became the majority shareholder of the company, and the existing PRO leadership team continues to operate the business. Harvest Partners remains a large shareholder.
“Joining PRO is an incredible opportunity,” Kane says. “In the workforce management world, we’ve never seen a moment so challenging, which inspires us to tap into creative ways of addressing current trends. Our clients require our ingenuity to design and develop integrated workforce management strategies to help them adapt to the present reality and unlock their potential, enabling organizations to increase speed, agility and innovation by reimagining their total workforce.”
PRO’s clients include world-leading Fortune 1000 organizations across multiple industries, including Apple, Facebook, Netflix, Genentech, Goldman Sachs, Charles Schwab, Mayo Clinic and Nike. As one of the only vendor-neutral hybrid MSP/VMS platforms at scale, the company is currently well-positioned to capitalize on a high-growth market opportunity.
“Jessica will lead, build and expand the global team responsible for creating integrated workforce solutions for clients, and she will also establish an ecosystem of partners worldwide,” says Joanna Chang, Renovata & Company partner. “She brings two decades of leadership experience advising executives and senior leadership on strategic human capital management and growth initiatives.”
Prior to joining PRO, Kane was senior managing director at Accenture, where she led the company’s North America Talent & Organization Cloud Change Acceleration practice. Before that, Kane was the global vice president of Consulting, Content and Industry Solutions for Cornerstone OnDemand. She was also a key member of the SuccessFactors’ leadership team that launched a successful IPO in 2001.
