Spunk Burke, author of THE GIG SOLUTION and Founder of GIGEXECS, is a 30-year veteran of the contract staffing industry. With the formation of GIGEXECS, he is principally focused on sourcing all manner of qualified business contractors to deliver solutions for the myriad functional needs of top management.
