Nelson’s Executives Continue to Contribute to Staffing Industry Innovations

Nelson’s Vice President of Marketing, Christina Russo, was named to the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) 2017 list of the top 40 staffing industry professionals under the age of 40. The SIA, a global advisor on contingent work and workforce solutions, created this list to recognize the contributions of talented individuals who were born on or after July 1, 1977.

Christina is one of many Nelson executives who have been recognized for their unique contributions to the industry. Last year, Senior Vice President, Kelley Hartman, was named the North Bay Woman in Business award and Joe Prusko, Chief Financial Officer, was named to the North Bay Business Journal’s CFO recognition list.

“I am honored to be included in SIA’s 2017 list of top industry influencers under 40,” said Christina. “As the staffing industry evolves, this new generation of leaders will play crucial roles in ushering in innovation. To be recognized alongside my colleagues for our contributions is a true honor.”

Christina joined Nelson in 2015, when she became the youngest member of the company’s executive leadership team. The programs, processes, and initiatives she has implemented since joining the company have been instrumental in fostering Nelson’s recent growth. Last year, Christina was also named to SIA’s inaugural 2016 Top Millennials in Staffing list.

“This list showed us that there were so many rising luminaries that should have their achievements chronicled,” said Subadhra Sriram, publisher and editor at Staffing Industry Analysts. “We listened and changed. The 40 Under 40 list takes the place of the Millennials in Staffing list and is our way to recognize more stars in the workforce solutions ecosystem.”

The SIA will celebrate the achievements of the list members, including Christina, at an event later this year. To see the full Staffing 40 Under 40 list, please visit
