May 2014

Addison Group aims to address the supply and demand gap for skilled Finance and Accounting talent in Denver

Addison Group, a growing professional staffing services firm, today announced that its Denver office is expanding with the addition of its Finance & Accounting Contract and Finance & Accounting Executive Search practices. The business units will grow the company’s local offerings, building out its current portfolio of IT hiring and recruiting services.

In 2013, employment growth in metro Denver was well above the national and state average.  One super-sector of the market, professional and business services, saw substantial growth that is expected to continue into 2014. This growth is creating demand for talented, experienced professionals. Coupled with rapidly-changing regulations, financial complexities and accounting compliance requirements, metro Denver businesses are increasingly in need of critical-thinking individuals with the functional knowledge to handle a variety of accounting and financial responsibilities.

“There is tremendous need for talented and experienced finance and accounting talent in the metro Denver market as a result of recent business growth,” said Jay Houston, President of Finance & Accounting Contract at Addison Group.  “We believe this presents a great opportunity for our Finance & Accounting businesses – both contract and executive search. Our team understands the challenges many businesses face as they work to locate and retain the best talent and as such, we will work side-by-side with our clients to help fill their F&A staffing needs.”

Addison Group’s Finance & Accounting Contract business is focused on assisting clients with finding experienced accounting and finance candidates at all levels.  This practice can assist with any short or long term projects, in addition to any traditional staff augmentation on a contract or contract to hire basis. Addison Group’s Executive Search practice implements intensive search strategies to locate the best possible C-suite, managerial, and staff level talent for organizations across all industries.

With existing practices in Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Oklahoma City, Reston, Schaumburg, Tulsa and Washington, D.C., Addison Group has the breadth and depth of experience needed to successfully locate and recruit finance and accounting talent in a growing business market like Denver.  Nationwide, Addison Group’s Finance & Accounting practices brought in over $35 million in revenue last year, making it one of the highest grossing business units for the company.
