CHILDS Advises CVPartners in its Acquisition by Addison Group

“We are thrilled to combine forces with CVPartners and excited about the opportunity to expand our Finance & Accounting, IT and HR practices into the West Coast,” said Thomas Moran, CEO of Addison Group. “CVPartners’ expertise in the region is a natural step forward in Addison’s continued development as a leading coast-to-coast professional staffing firm. CVPartners’ business model, philosophy and procedures are in line with our vision and we look forward to our future together.”

“We are excited to team up with Addison, a top recruiting and staffing firm with vast reach and deep industry experience, to expand the scope of our high-end consulting services across the country,” said the Founders of CVPartners. “We look forward to bringing our expertise in Finance, Accounting, Information Technology and Human Resource staffing to Addison as we work together to deliver the highest level of client service.”

Dave Phillips, Director at CHILDS Advisory Partners, commented, “We were delighted to work with the management team of CVPartners as they evaluated partnership opportunities.
