BATESVILLE,IN— Global Recruiters of Cincinnati has announced that Mark Jorgensen, president and own- er for more than 12 years, has sold the business to long- time associate Bob Heidlage. “Bob and I first worked to- gether at The Forethought Group in 1989 and reunited at Global Recruiters of Cincinnati in 2013,” according to Jorgensen. “We had a terrific working partnership for more than eight years here and I’m thrilled for our clients that the business will continue seamlessly with Bob. He’s had a long professional association with funeral homes and cemetery businesses.” Jorgensen added, “Bob was just recognized as one of nation’s best recruiters, earn- ing GRN’s prestigious “Elite” certification, shortly before completing an intense six-week ownership training pro- gram.” Heidlage is the president and managing partner effective immediately. Jorgensen purchased the business, founded as GRN of Batesville, in November 2008 from Steve Lang, former president of both The Forethought Group and Home- steaders Life Insurance Company. Jorgensen moved the office to Cincinnati, OH nine years ago, and Heidlage is relocating the business back to Batesville. As a result of the relocation, the company’s name will change back to the original, Global Recruiters of Batesville. The phone number will remain the same, 812-932-1290 and the new website address is Global Recruiters of Cincinnati Becomes Global Recruiters of Batesville After Ownership Change Bob Heidlage and Mark Jorgensen Continued on Page A26
