Privacy Think Tank Forms Working Relationship with Executive Search Firm

DALLAS, Texas–June 10, 2003 – National, state and global privacy legislation organizations in all industries are now grappling with the growth of privacy employment opportunities. Randall James Monroe, Inc., a Dallas-based global executive search consultancy and Privacy & American Business (P&AB), a non-profit public policy think tank, have formed a working relationship in support of P-JOBs, P&AB’s online privacy opportunity job board. Together, they will aid financial services companies, dot.coms, direct marketing organizations, telecommunications companies, health and pharmaceuticals and HR departments to fill emerging privacy, policy, information security and other related positions.  

“We appreciate Randall James Monroe, Inc.’s support of our first ever privacy job board – P-JOBs, and we believe this relationship will benefit the privacy community – both potential employees and employers,” said Lorrie Sherwood, Executive Director, Privacy & American Business. “Given our visibility as a business privacy thought leader, our privacy officers programs, and our strong reputation as a forward moving privacy organization since 1992, P&AB represents the single most important privacy resource used by privacy professionals.  This, coupled with the reputation of Randall James Monroe, Inc. which represents some of the top business organizations in the world, enhances our first of its kind activity.”  

“P-JOBs doesn’t collect personal information,” Susan Kegler, P-JOBs’ Project Manager, said in light of recent concerns that those posting resumes online have become victims of identity theft.
