Sunnyvale, CA, June 4, 2024  – ATR International, a leading technical staffing and consulting firm, is excited to announce the selection of CEO & President Andrea Brenholz for the renowned 2024 Merck Drexel Advanced Leadership Program for Small and Diverse Suppliers (ALP). The four-month program is designed to elevate business capabilities by equipping diverse leaders with resources and facilitating nationwide connections.

The ALP, which commenced with a two-day leadership intensive on May 20-21, will cover topics ranging from contract management and customer digital journeys to strategic networking and financial and operational planning. These insights will empower Brenholz to continue strengthening ATR’s position as a diverse supplier of choice within the staffing industry.

“I am thrilled to gain this incredible learning opportunity,” Brenholz said. “Over the next four months, I will gain new perspectives and cutting-edge strategies that will bolster my leadership capabilities and inspire innovation in our staffing firm. I’m committed to leveraging this invaluable experience to deliver more value to ATR clients and further differentiate our services.”

As a female Hispanic leader, Brenholz has relentlessly led ATR’s efforts to support corporate and government supplier diversity programs since she stepped into the CEO role in 2018. The ALP’s intensive curriculum and mutually supportive network will help her unlock new opportunities for ATR to contribute to nationwide diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.

The Merck Drexel Advanced Leadership Program will culminate in September with a comprehensive Request for Proposal Capstone Challenge in New Jersey.
