Darryl Green has been President and Chief Operating Officer of ManpowerGroup since May 1, 2014. As COO, Darryl is responsible for our four regions – Americas, APME, Southern and Northern Europe. Darryl is a strong commercial leader and in his role focuses on driving growth with the disciplined execution needed to achieve our goal of Industry Star.
To support the simplification efforts of the organization, in October 2012 Darryl Green was promoted to ManpowerGroup President. Darryl’s position allowed the company to be a more agile organization that made quicker decisions and drove stronger execution and operational performance.
Prior to being promoted to President, Darryl Green was President of the company's Asia Pacific and Middle East operations. Previously in charge solely of Asia Pacific, Darryl took on additional responsibility for overseeing the Middle East from January 2009. This represents a natural progression for him, as the majority of the workforce in the Middle East is sourced from the Asian region.
Prior to joining ManpowerGroup in May 2007 to lead Asia and Pacific, Green served as CEO of Tata Teleservices, India's fastest growing telecom operator, where revenues tripled and market share doubled during his tenure, which began in 2005. Previously, Green was CEO of Vodafone Japan, a publicly listed mobile services provider, where earnings more than doubled and revenues grew to US$15 billion during his three years at the helm. From 1989 to 1998, Green held various management positions within AT&T, including three years as President and CEO of its Japanese operations.
Green holds an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and a BA in Japanese/Asian studies from Brigham Young University. He is an American national who speaks fluent Japanese. He has served as the Vice Chairman of the Japan Telecommunications Association and as a member of the Mizuho Financial Group's advisory board and is currently one of the directors of the Japan Staffing Service Association (JASSA).
