Interview by SCLAA Director, Erica Gilcrist
On the 6th of April, I had the absolute pleasure of being able to meet and speak with Mr. Bill Pollock, Founder and CEO of Drake International. For those who may not be entirely familiar, Drake International is among the largest of staffing and recruitment companies globally. With operations in 11 countries around the world, Drake International provides much more than simple staffing solutions. They are an end-to-end provider of human resources services, performance improvement, consultative management, permanent staffing, temporary staffing and technology solutions.
Mr. Pollock himself is an exceptionally presented, soft-spoken, 90 years’ young Executive whose company’s origins form what is today’s modern temporary staffing agency. And whilst Drake International is much more than a successful global giant in the human capital industry, Bill’s story from then 1951, to now, is a story chock full of ‘world firsts’ against an almost rags to riches backdrop. Please enjoy the following Podcast with Bill and hear about his humble beginnings in Winnipeg, Ontario (Canada) to the 40th Floor of Collins Street in Melbourne Australia, just one of the many Drake International Offices around the world.
