In 1999, Harley Lippman asked 12 of his former colleagues to help him build a professional technology services firm that companies across the U.S. would rely on to deliver experienced, professional business and IT talent. Ten colleagues said yes, and the company was named Genesis10 in their honor. Today, Genesis10 provides staffing, workforce optimization and domestic outsourcing solutions. Recognized by Gartner as a Top 20 IT Staffing Firm in the U.S., the company is dedicated to helping companies implement business and technology initiatives cost-effectively. Based in New York, Genesis10 has grown organically at an annualized rate of 29 percent and has more than 2,000 employees and consultants and more than 20 sales and recruiting offices throughout North America, including six domestic delivery centers. Harley is an Executive Committee member on the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. He serves by Presidential appointment and Senate confirmation as a member of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. He is a board member of the Yale School of Management Board of Advisors and is a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board at Columbia University’s Graduate School of International and Public Affairs.
