Marion McGovern was the founder and CEO of M Squared Consulting, one of the first gig- economy talent intermediaries before the term was even coined. She also founded Collabrus, a company focused on independent contractor compliance. She now sits on several private company and nonprofit boards and actively mentors entrepreneurs in the human capital space.
McGovern wrote the book A New Brand of Expertise: How Independent Consultants, Free Agents, and Interim Managers Are Transforming the World of Work over a decade ago. This positioned herself to lead this transformation of work. In her new book, Thriving in the Gig Economy, she has once again shown the way of how both freelancers and employers need to thrive in this new world.
