Don G. King, Partner and CEO, Impact Performance Group

Read Bio

Don G. King is CEO of Impact Performance Group where he works to drive sales and client relationships within the Impact Outsourcing, Impact Workforce Technology, and Express Employment Professionals entities.

Don’s career in the staffing and HR industry began over 25 years ago, when he operated his first Express Employment Professionals staffing franchise.

After going on to open several additional franchise locations in central Georgia and serving as a regional developer responsible for growing the Express network, Don saw a need to help bring more stability and security to long-term temporary workers. He worked to meet this need by establishing Impact Outsourcing Solutions in 2001. Impact Outsourcing is an HR firm whose mission is to partner with employers to reduce their human capital expenses while still offering a better quality of life for their associates by providing pay increases and benefits options. Impact Outsourcing fulfills this mission through its proprietary Core2 concept, in addition to its HR training and consulting, payroll and tax administration, and PEO services.

Throughout his years in the staffing industry, Don became familiar with vendor management systems and the numerous challenges they posed to VMS clients, staffing firms, and the associates they employ. Don knew he could create a better platform that would allow VMS clients to make more informed staffing decisions and for VMS vendors to better communicate and serve their clients. Don used his knowledge and experiences to create Impact Workforce Technologies (IWT) in 2011. Through Clarity VMS, IWT’s proprietary VMS software as a service, he works each day to help staffing providers, managed service providers and client companies to enhance their VMS vendor/provider relationship rather than remove it.
