George Apelian – Founder

  • Accentuate Staffing Start Date – 01/06/96
  • Astrological Sign – Aquarius

‘The Power of Positive’ frames each day. As I open the door each morning, I snap my fingers, and remember that it’s “show time”.

George earned a BA in Economics from Lake (not Wake) Forest College and an MBA in Finance from the Simon School at the University of Rochester.   Candidly, he spent more time playing duplicate bridge than studying.

Single (but engaged), with two children of his own, and three on the way, George enjoys golf, tennis (when not rupturing his Achilles), reading and playing with his granddaughter.  His ‘Curious George’ observations in the monthly newsletter allow him the opportunity to freely “vent”.

George currently serves on the Board of Directors of National Students of AMF, and is a past Board member of the Eastern North Carolina Make-A-Wish Foundation and Dress for Success.  As a founder of Accentuate Staffing, he has promoted charitable and community giving as a core value of the company.

Aquarius is “known to change their temper like a change in wind direction”. At their worst, “they can be mean”. Who thinks this stuff up anyway, idiots?
