February 27, 2012 – Addison Search, a provider of professional staffing services, has acquired Addison Group, an Oklahoma-based firm that connects information technology, financial, administrative and engineering professionals with talent-driven organizations. Despite the similarity in names, the companies had no prior connection. The transaction is aligned with Addison's strategy to expand its national service footprint through organic growth and acquisition of high-growth, high-margin firms with a complementary service offering. "We saw a clear opportunity to leverage Addison Group's high-caliber team and proven performance into a powerful combined solutions provider," said Thomas Moran, CEO of Addison Search. "The strong operational and cultural alignment between our two firms provides a ready-made platform for exceptional delivery." Addison Search is a provider of staffing and permanent placement services for finance & accounting, information technology, financial operations, administrative, and nonclinical healthcare professionals.
