In 2005, she joined Kelly's global client relationships team, where she was responsible for developing and executing solutions for Fortune 100 clients. Since 2008, Ms. Shuman has been managing global account teams and developing global programs for Kelly. In 2011, she moved to Singapore to focus on strategy and solutions for Kelly's large accounts in APAC.
