are the creators/founders/leaders of CIubVMSA?

Jeannine Parise


Jeannine created CIubVMSA out of her own realization that there wasn’t a place in the Talent Ecosystem where all the thought leaders and stakeholders could meet on a regular basis and talk openly about the issues of the day. As a Mom of 4, a wife, and business owner, she is driven to create high-value, meaningful venues where business leaders in the Talent Ecosystem can engage with like-minded professionals and take away rich, ready-to-implement content and solutions into their business platforms… and maybe even develop a new relationship or two.

Jim Coughlin

Creative Director

Jim brings a 108 years of experience (not really but it feels like it) in Talent Acquisition to the forefront as the Lead Facilitator of Meetups and Enterprise Unplugged. Jim is responsible for those witty and thought-provoking community emails you read for 2.5 seconds.

Mark Zisholtz

ClubVMSA Legal Chair from BakerHostetler

A Co-founder of an international recruiting company, former vice president and general counsel of a $600 million staffing and alternative workforce supplier, and former employment partner and head of contingent labor at a national law firm, Mark Zisholtz is no stranger to complex human resources and employment issues. His practice is noted for its focus on contingent labor, temporary staffing and alternative workforce arrangements, and he is frequently sought after for both his management team and executive level representation, and his expertise on corporate and private equity transactions. Additionally, Mark provides day-to-day traditional employment counseling, as well as General Counsel services for select clients.

Mark is also a leading authority on independent contractors and payrolling of temporary W-2 workers, addressing matters from compliance through strategic engagement. He regularly speaks across the country on a wide variety of employment law and contingent labor matters. His impressive background also includes successfully litigating or engaging in alternative dispute resolution with respect to restrictive covenants, anti-discrimination laws, contingent labor and procurement matters, outsourcing and contract disputes, and much more.
