PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amongst the negative employment stories of 2010, there are some success stories. Search firm Armstrong Franklin (www.armstrongfranklin.com) and staffing firm Liberty Staffing (www.libertygroupstaffing.com) provided employment for over 300 people in only their first full year of business. Both firms are affiliates of Liberty Capital Partners (www.libertycapitalpartners.com), a Providence, RI based private equity firm.
Armstrong Franklin has offices in Philadelphia, PA, Wellesley, MA, Providence, RI and a presence in DC and VT. It concentrates on Executive, Managerial and Technical searches for individuals earning upwards of $100,00 per year. It has niche practices in Integrated Supply Chain & Logistics, Technology-Sales and Development/ Engineering, Trade Associations, Finance and Accounting, Human Resources & Life Sciences.
“We placed over 25 new executives in 2010,” said President, Steve Mills. “The market overall was difficult, but there were some hot spots and we capitalized on them. We saw revenue growth quarter over quarter throughout 2010, and are projecting a doubling of revenues in 2011. We are opening a Search practice in our Corporate offices in Providence, RI, moving to larger premises in the Boston area and have a plan to double our recruiter headcount in the first 6 months of 2011. There is a pent-up demand for talent and we are positioned to fuel our clients’ growth by supplying top tier executives to meet their needs.”
Liberty Staffing has offices in Newark, DE, Philadelphia, PA, Providence, RI, and Wellesley, MA. It provides temporary and contract staffing ranging from fully-managed On-Site contracts to a person for a day.
“We’re proud to have provided employment to so many people this year. It is significant that some of those individuals that began on a temporary contract did such an outstanding job that our client offered them permanent employment. We expect to see the “temp to perm” route used by many companies this year as increased demand increases the need for skilled and committed employees,” says Mills.
