For almost 40 years, Al Strong has run CPS with love, grit and determination. His vision to help Southern Ca. businesses and organizations locate and hire the best IT personnel made him a legend in the IT staffing industry. As a leader at Information Industries Inc, he initiated a version of what so many now call Contract to Hire. With this innovation CPS has been successful in placing thousands of contractors nationwide. The team at CPS are sad to announce that Al passed away last week and though he will no longer be running the show here at CPS, his love and passion to bring businesses and the right IT professionals together will not diminish. Remembering Al’s great sense of humor and his dogged determination to do a great job, we are more committed than ever to keep Al’s legacy alive. Though we are sad today, we are grateful that Al’s 80 years were lived to the fullest.
