Magellan’s Focus on Growth and Service Continues with Appointment of Albert Simmons, COO

Magellan Search & Staffing is pleased to announce the addition of Albert K. Simmons to their Executive Leadership Team as Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Simmons will be driving “Best in Class” business processes, marketing strategies and account management to facilitate Magellan’s continued growth. He’ll do this with an eye on defining emerging markets and identifying promising areas for corporate expansion.


Mr. Simmons has more than twenty years of information technology management experience, most recently serving as Chief Business Development Officer for Liquidhub, a $115 million Systems Integration firm based in Wayne, PA. In addition, Mr. Simmons was Partner and CEO at NetPixel, a New York based IT Services company, growing the company from $18 million to $50 million in just over two years.


Albert brings to Magellan his commitment to expanding market share by anticipating customer needs and delivering superior service. Magellan is dedicated to becoming a trusted partner,

a single source, able to deliver a full suite of services across their vertical markets. Mr. Simmons says, “In today’s business climate, customers today are looking to consolidate their business partners by doing more business with fewer suppliers. Over the past 11 years, Magellan has been building its service capabilities to meet current and ongoing demands.”


“Coming on the heels of once again being named to the Inc. 500|5000 list, the addition of Albert to our executive team is another leap forward in our aggressive growth strategy,” said Magellan President Mathew Kenefic. “He has a proven track record of championing change and growth and we couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.”
