Schenk has previously worked as CEO Germany and the Nordics of Kelly Services. He takes over from Sven Kilian who has been CEO since 2009.

"With Thomas Schenk we have found a very trustworthy manger with extensive experience in the staffing industry", says Rika Coppens, CEO of House of HR, the parent company of TimePartner. “We wish him the best of luck and will provide him with all possible help to make TimePartner an even bigger success in the future."

Schenk is looking forward to the challenges ahead: “TimePartner is highly efficient, present in all regions and sectors and has been growing faster than the market over the past years as we offer more than just temporary employment solutions.

After serving TimePartner as CEO for ten years, previous CEO Sven Kilian wants to spend more time with his family and explore new business opportunities. "Sven Kilian succeeded in making TimePartner exceptionally successful during the past years. He paved a tremendous growth path for the company. We are very grateful for that and he will surely be missed by all of us", says Coppens.
