Jerry Mabe, President and CEO

For over 16 years, Jerry worked as a senior executive in Fortune 500 and 1000 companies before stepping out as an entrepreneur to form A One Service Personnel. This Atlanta-based, full-service staffing company grew into a three branch operation, providing jobs to over 3,000 people per year before being acquired in 1995 by Select Appointments, PLC – an international staffing consortium based in London, England. A One Service Personnel used assessments extensively in its services which led Jerry to establish RightPath after the acquisition.
