Addison Group opens new office in Austin, TX to address growing demand for hiring, staffing services

Addison Group, a leading provider of professional staffing services, today announced that it has expanded its presence in Texas with the opening of a new office in Austin. The move into the Austin market further increases Addison Group’s national presence and is the company’s thirteenth office serving a major U.S. metropolitan area.

According to Forbes, Austin is the fastest growing city in the nation. From 2006 through 2013, more than 340,000 new residents made Austin their home. As a result of close proximity to universities and nationally recognized events like SXSW Interactive, the city has attracted a wide array of startups and is home to a number of the fastest growing businesses on the Inc. 5000 list.

“Austin is an entrepreneurial city. There are countless, well-funded startups and an influx of companies moving to the area due in large part to the city’s culture and sense of community,” said Phil Gaddis, President of the Executive Search practice at Addison Group. “As a result of this growth, there’s tremendous need for Austin-based companies to attract and retain talent at the professional level, especially in finance and accounting as well as high-tech.”

Addison Group will initially launch its Finance & Accounting Contract and Executive Search practices, as well as its Information Technology practice in the new Austin location. Addison Group’s Finance & Accounting Contract business is focused on finding candidates that have the right experience to address companies’ biggest financial, wealth management and accounting challenges – like SOX compliance, SEC reporting and tax audits. This group is focused on finding the right talent for both short- and long-term projects. For businesses that need to fill top management positions, the Executive Search practice implements intensive search strategies to locate the best possible C-suite and managerial talent for the organization. Addison Group’s IT practice staffs all levels of technology positions, from entry level to executive. Candidates provide support for the complete software development lifecycle, business systems, infrastructure, operations, and other strategic initiatives.

With existing practices in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston Galleria, Houston Downtown, New York, Oklahoma City, Reston, Schaumburg, Tulsa and Washington DC, Addison Group has the breadth and depth of experience needed to successfully locate and recruit talent in a growing business market like Austin.
