Diana Voegele, co-owner Express Employment Professionals, Edwardsville and Fairview Heights
By RITA DUCKWORTH
When Diana Voegele’s husband Marc decided to buy a franchise, she knew she’d be involved in the decision-making process, but didn’t expect to build a career. When they learned about Express Employment Professionals, she wanted a larger role.
The couple just celebrated 10 years as co-owners of their Edwardsville franchise location. Diana manages the franchise’s second office in Fairview Heights, which opened in March 2014.
Express Employment Professionals is a staffing agency with more than 760 franchise locations worldwide. They fill permanent and temporary positions, running the gamut of skill levels and industries. Her approach to business is all about cultivating relationships within the community and matching people with the resources they need. “We have built a rather large professional network of trusted business partners. If you help people achieve their goals, you will receive an abundance of success and good will in return.”
She speaks of the internal staff of consultants, coordinators, salespeople, and interns, with gratitude. “They are the backbone of our business – Marc and I are just a small part.”
