Supply Chain Management is at a major inflection point, and moments of immense change require a game changer. So we’re pleased to announce that Argentus has hired a true game changer in Supply Chain staffing.
In response to the strong job market and our continued growth, Argentus has brought on Kristina Jokinen. As Partner – Direct Hire and Contingent Staffing, Kristina will work to increase Argentus’ penetration into key markets and take advantage of the immense opportunities in Supply Chain talent in 2019.
Kristina’s subject matter expertise is in Supply Chain Management, Operations, Logistics and Procurement, with a broad and proven track record in both the U.S. and Canadian market.
Kristina’s extensive career in recruitment has brought her into senior leadership roles, but her roots with Argentus run deep: she originally worked with Argentus President Bronwen Hann at the Pinstripe Group of Companies, helping to grow it into a $40 million a year business.
After Pinstripe became Ajilon Staffing, Kristina’s role grew as she opened new branches, and transformed her unit into the most profitable division within the company’s North American operations. In 2011, Kristina became VP of Direct Hire at Adecco Group, the largest staffing firm in the world. Tasked with setting strategic direction for the company’s direct hire business, she realized the importance of building subject matter expertise in specific verticals. She implemented a niche recruitment model, including units dedicated to Supply Chain, Operations and Logistics — which transformed an underperforming group into a dynamo.
Time and again, Kristina’s career has followed an enviable path: she dives in, transforms, and grows the business – no matter what role she’s in. After her tremendously successful run exposed her to Supply Chain’s potential, it’s only natural that she finds her way to Canada’s premier firm in the field.
At Argentus, Kristina has begun to actively build her client base in a diverse set of industries including Manufacturing (CPG, Food, Electronics, Aviation & Aerospace, Defense, and Pharmaceutical), as well as 3rd Party Logistics (3PL), in both Canada and the U.S. She’s also working to expand her already well-established network of high performing Supply Chain, Procurement and Logistics professionals.
“I’m excited to join Argentus, a niche recruitment firm, to help companies across North America improve their Supply Chain, Procurement and Logistics performance by providing exceptional talent,” Kristina says.
