MBO Partners, the leading deep job platform for independent professionals, has announced the appointments of three new executive team members. Flavio Palaci is joining the company as Chief Platform and Digital Transformation Officer, Will Davis as Chief Operations Officer, and Graham Plaster as Chief Provider Solutions Officer.
"Flavio, Will, and Graham are dynamic leaders that will elevate MBO's strategy and operational execution to drive an enhanced platform capability," said MBO Partners CEO Miles Everson. "A deep job platform like MBO is so much more than simply matching professional to contract and fulfilling work arrangements. Our vision is to transcend ways of working to enhance the well-being of people and businesses throughout the world."
Mr. Palaci comes to MBO Partners from PwC, where he led its Global Advisory Data and Analytics practice. In his new role, he will be responsible for leading the growth and development of MBO’s platform capabilities.
"I'm excited to join such a dynamic and experienced team, and to leverage the power of analytics and data to enhance interactions and deliver a better customer experience for both independent and enterprise at MBO," said Mr. Palaci.
Mr. Davis has nearly 15 years of experience as a sales professional, including the last five years as head of sales for online employment marketplace RigUp. He has also served in sales, business development and advisory roles at WellAware, mindWireless, and Neuberger Berman.
"Shifting business landscapes and a shortage of specialized talent are forcing companies to evolve to a more modern business model," said Mr. Davis. "Simultaneously, independent professionals realize that owning and operating their own microbusinesses affords freedom of choice, greater income potential, and better control over their own destiny. I'm eager to build on MBO's strong foundation to further drive processes and procedures that enable work to happen safely and efficiently."
Mr. Plaster comes to MBO having been an independent professional himself, after a career as an active-duty Naval Officer. As Chief Provider Solutions Officer, he will oversee MBO Partners’ community engagement efforts and direct-to-provider initiatives.
"I am excited to join such an experienced and dynamic team, and to further drive MBO's commitment to building a sustainable community of independent professional leaders," said Mr. Plaster.
