MILWAUKEE, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world
leader in innovative workforce solutions, announced today that ManpowerGroup
Chairman and CEO Jeff Joerres has promoted two ManpowerGroup officers to serve
as Presidents of the company and expanded their leadership roles to cover
additional markets. Joerres, CEO and President of the company since 1999 and
Chairman since 2001, is transferring his President title to both Jonas Prising
and Darryl Green. Both executives will continue reporting directly to Joerres,
who will remain Chairman and CEO.


In addition to being responsible for the Americas, Prising now oversees
Southern Europe and will work directly with ManpowerGroup country leaders in
all of these regions. Green is responsible for the Asia Pacific, Middle East
and now Northern Europe regions. Hans Leentjes continues as ManpowerGroup
President of Northern Europe, driving the region's performance and will report
to Green.

"Delivering client solutions with speed and efficiency is a top priority in
today's increasingly complex Human Age," Joerres said. "Expanding the roles of
these two officers at a President level will simplify and focus our
decision-making and selling processes, ultimately driving stronger performance
across ManpowerGroup's delivery model.

"Both Jonas and Darryl have consistently delivered against ManpowerGroup's
financial goals, possess exceptional knowledge of global and local talent
markets, and reinforce the behaviors that define ManpowerGroup's culture,"
Joerres added. "I am confident that by expanding their executive
responsibilities ManpowerGroup is better positioned to more quickly provide
employers with the right innovative workforce solutions."
