LIVONIA, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, today announced that Mark Kurowski has joined the company as Vice President of Global Services. In this role, he is responsible for ensuring timely and successful client service delivery, while contributing to the company's growth and bringing greater efficiencies to its operations.

Kurowski has extensive leadership experience in multiple business areas, including account management, project management and product management.

As the company continues to experience high demand for its workforce management and next-generation data capture solutions, Kurowski will help to ensure successful client delivery and guide continued development and expansion of its professional services team.

"We are deeply committed to continually improving our products and the people who develop, deliver and support them, and our leadership team is no exception," said Kevin Choksi, CEO and co-founder of WorkForce Software.
