Kathy Hardy

CEO and Co-Founder at YUPRO

Kathy Hardy has over 25 years of executive staffing experience as a Senior Vice President and President in both national and international staffing markets. Her career has been distinguished by entrepreneurial endeavors in fast-growth, multi-site organizations, and her exceptional ability for building professional, high-performance teams.

As the CEO and Co-founder of YUPRO, Kathy has translated her staffing experience into a social purpose staffing agency that provides career placement and coaching to over 15,000 Opportunity Young Adults in over 20 cities across the US, while offering skilled, motivated talent to business clients.

Previously, Kathy’s commitment to community service led to the establishment of 400 inner city after-school programs serving 10,000 elementary age children. That is where Kathy first experienced the joy of driving change as an individual and seeing the difference it makes in people’s lives.  YUPRO is a natural continuation of that work, and is bringing untapped talent and customer need together.
