Friday, May 24, 2013
Patina Solutions, a firm that provides proven, accomplished professionals with 25+ years of experience for key projects, engagements and initiatives, has opened its ninth U.S. office in Minneapolis by acquiring Summit Advisory Group.
"We are 25 times the size we were in 2009 - companies are clearly hungry for the precisely matched expertise of our experienced professionals in the flexible, on-demand manner we provide," said Mike Harris, CEO of Patina Solutions. "By opening a Patina office in Minneapolis, we will expand our Midwest presence and our ability to help more companies execute their vision," added Harris.
The Patina Solutions Minneapolis office is led by Greg Hoffman as Managing Partner. Hoffman was the founder and president of Minneapolis-based Summit Advisory Group, a provider of human resources, accounting and finance talent. "I have worked with Greg before and he will do a great job of building Patina in the Minneapolis marketplace, where he has spent his entire career," said Harris.
"We are building a Portfolio of Talent® based in the Minneapolis area consisting of professionals with 25 or more years of experience who want to work on high-level, rewarding projects or in interim or part-time executive and management roles," said Hoffman. "And, we are helping a variety of companies execute key initiatives, complete projects and accelerate growth while staying flexible. Accessing top talent without having long-term hiring issues and commitment is a growing trend, and Patina is at the forefront - at the executive and managerial level."
"It's a win-win situation for the Minneapolis business community, who can tap into talent from the local area but also from Patina's growing domestic and international office network," added Harris.
Patina Solutions' Minneapolis office is located at 1270 Northland Drive in Mendota Heights and can be reached at (651) 688-7300.
