MILWAUKEE, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, today announced the appointment of Richard Buchband as Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer, effective immediately. Buchband will serve as ManpowerGroup's General Counsel and lead the company's overall legal strategy and function, as well as managing corporate governance and securities. He will report directly to Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO.


Buchband previously served as Partner and Associate General Counsel for Accenture plc, a $28 billion consulting, technology services and outsourcing company. He also served as Senior Corporate Counsel and Secretary for global travel company Orbitz, Inc. and as an independent legal consultant. Buchband graduated from Princeton University with a BA Degree in 1985 and also holds a Juris Doctor from Columbia Law School.

"Richard brings to ManpowerGroup valuable strategic and leadership experience developed at major public and private companies," said Jeffrey A. Joerres, ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO. "His deep in-house experience with public company issues will serve our company well and I would like to formally welcome Richard to the ManpowerGroup family."

Buchband succeeds Ken Hunt, who will retire after serving as legal counsel for ManpowerGroup in various capacities for the past 30 years.

"I would also like to thank Ken for the long and distinguished service he has dedicated to ManpowerGroup for over three decades," added Joerres. "During his impressive tenure, Ken has been instrumental in propelling our company forward by improving process and service to internal and external clients. We wish him all the best for a long and happy retirement."

Hunt, who has been associated with ManpowerGroup for over 30 years, formed a global team of ManpowerGroup lead attorneys from all regions. He also improved upon a state of the art compliance program and has been recognized as one of The Best Lawyers in America in the Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions and Securities Law categories. Prior to assuming the role of ManpowerGroup General Counsel and Secretary, Hunt was a shareholder, member of the Corporate Law Practice Group and member of the Management Committee for Godfrey and Kahn, S.C, ManpowerGroup's primary law firm.
