Chicago Professional Services Firm Addison Group Opens Fort Worth Office

Addison Group, a growing provider of professional talent solutions and business consulting services, says the office will help meet Fort Worth’s growing need for a quality workforce—a need "largely driven by migration to the city's thriving business community and diverse economy."

Chicago-based Addison Group, a growing provider of professional talent solutions and business consulting services, has opened an office in Fort Worth that offers contract, contract-to-hire, executive search, and permanent placement solutions within finance & accounting, human resources, and administration.

Addison Group said it has expanded its consulting and talent solutions brands by strategically opening new locations across the nation, addressing the demands of local markets as they arise.

“At Addison Group, we’re heavily invested in Texas, and as a result, we’ve become very familiar with the market differences, and opening an office specific to Fort Worth’s needs means acknowledging, respecting, and offering solutions to serve those distinctions,” Ed Kavanagh, Addison Group’s president of human resources & administration, said in a statement.

Given the resources and expertise that Addison Group has in the staffing industry, the firm said that launching a practice in Fort Worth will enable it to partner with local employers and candidates to capitalize on the favorable business demand for skilled talent.

The firm said that Fort Worth’s growing need for a quality workforce is “largely driven by migration to the city’s thriving business community and diverse economy.” The area has become a centralized hub for talent recruitment and management, with an emphasis on the healthcare, technology, and finance industries, all areas of expertise for Addison Group.

Company already has offices in Dallas and three other Texas cities

Addison Group has already established a strong presence in other large Texas metropolitan hubs, with offices located in Dallas, Austin, Houston, and San Antonio.

The firm said its decision to open a separate location dedicated to clients and candidates in Fort Worth is an affirmation that it understands the unique and intricate differences between the Fort Worth market versus Dallas.

“While Fort Worth and Dallas are both vibrant and dynamic cities, it’s important to have boots on the ground in both cities to serve our clients better. The 35 miles between them makes a big difference, and their talent pools and workforces have unique character and culture,” Addison Group, President of Executive Search Practice Phil Gaddis said in a statement.
