Phaidon International launches Chicago office
Phaidon International has launched a Chicago office today (12th September).
After three years in New York, one year in San Francisco, and an office launch in Boston earlier this year, Phaidon said that the time had come to further expand its operations to Chicago. After recently being named the 4th Fastest Growing Staffing Firm in the US by Staffing Industry Analysts, this office launch comes at an exciting time in Phaidon International’s growth in North America.
Harry Youtan, managing director at Phaidon International, commented, “Our vision in Chicago is to replicate Phaidon International’s successful model to staffing across STEM.
“Since the inception of Phaidon in America, Chicago has become a location where a number of our brands have built long-standing strategic relationships, with clients who are looking to hire best in class talent for hard to fill roles. Being on the ground in Chicago will allow Phaidon to better serve their candidates and clients in the search for highly sought after skills, in which our recruitment brands specialize.”
Phaidon International’s new Chicago office will initially focus on the financial services space, delivered by their micro-specialist brand Selby Jennings. Along with Selby Jennings, it will also launch the EPM Scientific brand, which will be able to offer niche industry expertise in the life sciences space, including pharmaceuticals and medical communications. Bringing years of experience at Phaidon International, these teams will be led by director, Oliver Hayes.
Hayes said, “We are launching our Chicago office with two brands – EPM Scientific and Selby Jennings. These brands already have strong relationships in Chicago and having them on the ground ensures that our ability to deliver the best STEM talent to our existing and future clients only strengthens. I am proud to be part of this new milestone in Phaidon’s growth story, and I am excited to see what this new office will accomplish going forward.”
