Thursday, June 6, 2013
Patina Solutions, a fast-growing firm that provides proven, accomplished executives and professionals with 25+ years of experience to help companies with key projects, initiatives, and interim expertise, has joined Senior Management Worldwide (SMW), a network of high-quality talent resourcing firms located throughout Europe.
"Patina is very pleased and proud to have been selected as the U.S. member firm of SMW," said Mike Harris, CEO of Patina. "By having partner firms in 12 European countries, we are in a position to better serve our growing number of U.S.-based clients with European operations, as well as help European-based companies with needs in America."
SMW includes firms located in Italy, Germany, England, France, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary, and Denmark. Formed in 2003, the SMW alliance of like-minded firms has had many successful engagements working together to best serve clients.
"Patina is an excellent partner for SMW in the U.S. The company has a growing network of offices and an impressive roster of talented executives ready to help our European clients with interim and project talent needs in the U.S.," said Maurizio Quarta, current President and co-founder of SMW and owner of Milan-based TMC Advisors. "There is no better way to enter SMW's tenth year of existence than by welcoming Patina to our group. This addition significantly increases our market reach and ability to serve our international clients."
By joining SMW, Patina continues to enrich and expand its international capabilities. The firm recently incorporated in Hong Kong and is in the process of opening an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
"Patina is a great resource for U.S. companies with operations outside the U.S. - or companies that want to analyze and consider international expansion," said Harris. "We have already completed several projects in China and look forward to being able to help our clients with operations and interests throughout Europe."
Patina's Chairman and co-founder, Patrick O'Brien, said, "We are pleased to join SMW in Europe as we expand Patina's global footprint. The opportunity to share our strong Portfolio of Talent to be an accelerator for growth has worldwide potential."
