Described by one industry journal as a "management wizard," Treacy joined TMP Worldwide in 1994 as Chief Executive Officer for the company's recruitment division, bringing an impressive financial background to the world's largest yellow page and recruitment advertising company. In 1996, as Executive Vice President of Finance and Strategy, he helped to guide TMP through the company's initial public offering. He was named to the position of Executive Vice President and COO in February 1998, responsible for corporate strategy and development as well as company financing and investor relations. In November 2001 he became President and COO of TMP and assumed direct day-to-day responsibility for the company's business.
Treacy has been a guiding hand for much of TMP's recent successes, providing strategic direction and vision to the recruitment advertising division, and helping to lead TMP's purchase of The Monster Board. He received his business degree from Siena College, and a MBA with honors from St. John's University.
