Transitioning into Ownership

| In New Franchises |

Mark & Mary Leupold (Appleton, WI – BTO)With experience in the staffing industry and established roots in the Appleton, WI, community, Mark and Mary Leupold were drawn to Express Employment Professionals through its Boost to Ownership (BTO) Program. The BTO program is designed to offer qualified staffing industry employees an opportunity to become Express Franchisees.

Mark received a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Ripon College in Ripon, WI, where he also played Division III football. Mark began his professional career as a financial representative before entering the staffing industry as a recruiter. Once in the industry, he was quickly promoted to business development manager before being moved into a branch manager position. As a Business Development Manager, Mark was awarded several incentive Caribbean trips based on his yearly production.

With six years in the staffing industry, Mark has developed a passion for recruiting and helping businesses with their hiring challenges. Mark sees the BTO Program as his path to business ownership in the industry he has affection for.

Mark and Mary, who have been married for six years, look forward to opening the doors to a new Express office in their community of Appleton. Mary works at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Centers, which enables both of them to network with area business owners and executive level professionals. Mark and Mary are active in Appleton where Mark is a member of Young Appleton Professionals and Mary is a board member for WisconSibs, a nonprofit for Wisconsin siblings of people with disabilities.
