Penmac Staffing has named Troy Yonker as the new Branch Manager of the Penmac Staffing office in Fort Smith, AR. Yonker started working with the Penmac branch in West Plains, MO in 2012. Over the last three years, Yonker has grown with the company—starting as a part-time Office Assistant, moving into a role as Staffing Specialist, and now accepting the Branch Manager position.
Penmac, which has over thirty branches in 7 states, employs approximately 150 in-house staff and prioritizes promoting from within whenever possible. Nearly half of Penmac’s branch managers started in a Staffing Specialist role. Paula Adams, Penmac President, notes, “When we were looking for someone to lead the Fort Smith location, Troy was a natural choice.” Adams said, “Troy’s thorough knowledge of staffing and payroll procedures, his exceptional communication skills, and his dedication to Penmac have been a tremendous benefit to the company. With his leadership, the Fort Smith branch is going to excel.”
Over the last year, Yonker stepped up in his position as Staffing Specialist to travel to other Penmac branches to help with training and compliance during times of transition. He took on payroll, invoicing, and other tasks. Yonker has been an asset to not just the West Plains office, but to the company as a whole. This promotion will allow Yonker the opportunity to continue providing exceptional service through Penmac.
Yonker is excited about the move to the Fort Smith area. “Being involved in the community is very important to me,” Yonker notes. “I’m looking forward to working with the Fort Smith Penmac team and learning new ways that Penmac can give back to the Fort Smith community by building connections between local businesses and job seekers.”
Penmac opened the Fort Smith branch in 2004 to help businesses find quality candidates and to help job seekers find employment to meet their needs.
