METAMORA — A former Peoria area man whose family still resides in Metamora has been named chief executive officer and president of TrueBlue, a publicly traded workforce solutions organization with annual revenue of nearly $3 billion.

Patrick Beharelle will officially assume the new role in September, after working as chief operating officer since 2015. He joined the company, which is based in Tacoma, Wash., the prior year as part of an acquisition.

Beharelle has spent more than 22 years in the staffing, recruitment process, outsourcing and consulting industries and was recently inducted into the Staffing Industry Analysts’ Hall of Fame.
