LINDEN WOLFE

VICE PRESIDENT

Linden Wolfe, PHR, CCWP is the Vice President of Excelsior MS3P. With over 25 years in the workforce solutions space, much of that dedicated to MSP and VMS solutions, Linden brings unique insight and expertise to the crafting, implementing and managing of strategic contingent labor programs, particularly in the high-volume, highly transactional blue/pink color arena. His simple, transparent, counter-cultural approach allows for customized, out-of-the box strategies. Linden’s philosophy is driven by a “complexity is the enemy of efficiency” belief system and his dedication to acknowledging the key role that staffing suppliers play in making contingent workforce programs outrageously successful. If you are looking for status quo staffing solutions, Linden is not your guy. He also has a rather warped sense of humor and edgy style that belies his years of executive experience.
