November 20, 2019 – Executive search firms large and small continue to expand to new areas in an effort to better serve their clients. Recently, executive recruiters Epic Business Strategies expanded with the opening of its second office in Milwaukee, WI.
Headquartered in Naples, FL, Epic Business Strategies said that it decided to add the second location to better serve its many clients based in the Midwest.
Chicago is the economic and financial center of the Midwest, and has the third largest gross metropolitan product in the U.S. Chicago was named the fourth most important business center in the world in the MasterCard Worldwide Centers of Commerce Index. Outside of Chicago, many other Midwest cities are host to financial centers as well. Federal Reserve Bank districts are also headquartered at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, and Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
In addition, agriculture is one of the biggest drivers of local economies in the Midwest, accounting for billions of dollars worth of exports and thousands of jobs. The area consists of some of the richest farming land in the world. Midwestern states also lead the nation in other agricultural commodities, including pork (Iowa), beef and veal (Nebraska), dairy (Wisconsin) and chicken eggs (Iowa).
