DALLAS, Sept. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GEX Management, Inc. (OTCQB:GXXM) is proud to announce the addition of Gerald Johnston, Former CFO and Board Member of Tyson Foods, and Leandre Johns, External Affairs Director or Uber Technologies in Texas, to its Board of Advisors. The addition of Mr. Johnston and Mr. Johns represent the continuing mission of GEX to build a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) that focuses on the unique needs, complexities and opportunities that exist in industries that utilize PEO services.
Gerald M. Johnston began his career at Tyson Foods, Inc. (TSN) in 1970, and he was appointed to the position of Chief Financial Officer in 1981. Mr. Johnston served directly under the then President and CEO, Donald J. Tyson. During his tenure at Tyson, Mr. Johnston oversaw multiple acquisitions, which, at the time of Mr. Johnston’s retirement in 1996, helped Tyson Foods become one of the largest manufacturing companies in the world. Mr. Johnston remained on the Board of Directors of Tyson foods until 2003.
“I am very pleased to have Mr. Johnston join our Board of Advisors,” said Carl Dorvil, President and CEO of GEX Management. “I believe it’s important to study and learn from successful business leaders about what made them successful pioneers in their industries. I believe Mr. Johnston is one of these leaders, and I am humbled and honored to have him on the GEX Advisory Board. Mr. Johnston provides GEX with an opportunity to gain first-hand insight into the growth strategies that were successful at Tyson, and learn how GEX can tailor specific PEO and professional services to businesses that work with large manufacturing companies. Mr. Johnston will be an invaluable addition to our Advisory Board, and we look forward to working with and learning from him.”
Another addition to the GEX Advisory Board includes the current External Affairs Director of Uber Technologies, Inc. for the State of Texas, Leandre Johns. Mr. Johns is a graduate from Southern Methodist University where he was awarded with the honor of being a Hunt Scholar. He went on to receive his MBA at Northwestern University, and served in the private equity industry prior to joining Uber in 2012. Since joining Uber, Mr. Johns has overseen the expansion of Uber across more than 10 major cities in the State of Texas.
Leandre commented, “I’m excited to be part of such a great company. When you look at the company's growth this year, it is very impressive to say the least. I believe GEX Management has a chance to be very disruptive in the PEO, payroll and staffing space. I’m looking forward to sharing insights I’ve learned throughout the years with the exceptional management team they have in place.”
