Corporate Finance Specialist Joins Labor SMART


Bud Little has joined the newly created advisory board of Labor SMART, a provider of on-demand staffing primarily in the southeastern U.S. Little has 25 years of senior executive leadership experience and has completed $1.1 billion in equity and debt financing and restructuring, as well as 31 acquisitions and divestitures valued at $1.3 billion.

“I’m excited to have Mr. Little on the Labor SMART team,” said Ryan Schadel, president and CEO of Labor SMART. “His exceptional experience in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, balance sheet restructuring and equity financing will be invaluable as we make preparations to move forward with our plans for 2016 and beyond.”

Since 2009, Little has been president of SFL3 LLC, a provider of strategic, financial, technology and human resource consulting services to clients throughout the U.S. and internationally. Prior to SFL3, Little was CFO of TrueBlue’s skilled trades group, following the 2005 acquisition of CLP Resources, where he was executive vice president and CFO.

“I am very impressed with what the Labor SMART team has achieved over the past few years, and look forward to working with them and the advisory board to take the company to the next level,” said Little.

The addition of Little to the advisory board brings the total number of members to three. Labor SMART expects to announce at least one additional member in the coming weeks.
