Three of the company's executives currently serve on the Candidate Experience Council, a group dedicated to ensuring Talent Board has access to the latest insight and ideas in the recruiting space. Donovan is a global delegate for the North American council. Sarah Peiker, RPO Practice Lead for EMEA serves on the European council, and Susan Howse, General Manager for ManpowerGroup Solutions Australia serves on the Australia and New Zealand council.
