In 2010, with the launch of persontura PERSONAL, founders Michael Spranger and David Ristow made their idea for a temporary staffing company a reality. As managing directors of persontura, they now apply the professional competence and experience they have acquired as regional managers and authorised signatories of a regional temporary staffing company, on a daily basis.
Michael Spranger completed his training as a hotel specialist and pursued this career until he became the manager of a 260-room, four-star hotel. During this period of hotel management, by 1995 he had already discovered that it is difficult to react to fluctuations in hotel occupancy unless you have an external service provider taking care of staffing. Such fluctuations are often caused by occupancy spikes while trade fairs and major events are taking place. In 2002 he then had the opportunity to establish and manage his own business in the area of temporary staffing for the hotel and restaurant industry. Since this time he been dealing exclusively with temporary staffing, in various positions.
David Ristow initially completed his commercial training with a major construction company in Nuremberg. As the appointed manager of the equipment department, he consulted with internal interfaces such as the warehouse, workshop and construction sites on a daily basis. It soon became clear to him that he very much enjoyed working with people. As a result of his further training as a business administrator, he also developed a desire for a career change. As a result, he began working for a notable staffing service provider as a staffing manager in the commercial and technical sector in Erlangen.
Following the successful development of the department, he was transferred to manage the branch in Nuremberg. An opportunity then arose with a competitor to oversee the expansion of existing branch offices and the construction of new ones. David Ristow was of course more than happy to take on this challenge. Throughout the continual staff cuts, in the name of the company he was assigned the task of strengthening the business and successfully leading it forward.
