Los Angeles (PRWEB) September 20, 2005
Capital H Group, a rapidly expanding human capital consulting firm headquartered in Chicago, continues to build its national presence by opening an office in Long Beach to serve California as a hub, with plans to open satellites throughout the state.
According to Dan Weinfurter, Chief Executive Officer of Capital H Group, "Opening an office to serve the California market is critical to our national expansion plan, which relies on both organic growth and acquisitions. With the addition of our team in California, we now have coast-to-coast coverage in the U.S. The business community in California seems especially receptive to new ideas and different perspectives on how to improve returns on their investments in people."
Since securing a $26 million private equity commitment from PPM Americas in September 2003, Weinfurter and partners Greg Silich, Chief Operating Officer, and Keith Swenson, Managing Partner, have increased the companyÂs workforce by ten-fold, opened up several new offices and substantially expanded the breadth and depth of consulting services offered by the company.
Capital H Group will build on this approach in California, where Mitch Ellner has been named Managing Director. Formerly the president of his own firm, Ellner has over 20 years of experience in organizational and human resources consulting both in industry (Directfit, City National Bank and Citibank) as well as a consultant. Ellner will be responsible for building client relationships and managing and expanding a team of professionals that already includes consultants specializing in:
- Human Resources effectiveness including strategy development; developing sourcing strategies for vendor selection; management, assessment and analysis of the function and workersÂ compensation and disability management cost containment.
- Organization effectiveness including change management, culture change and process effectiveness.
- Executive effectiveness including leadership development, coaching services and succession planning.
- Sales effectiveness, including sales strategy and design and leadership coaching.
- Talent effectiveness, including workforce planning, performance management, and compensation.
"I am very enthusiastic about introducing the Capital H Group consulting model to this market," explains Ellner, "and believe that our clients will benefit greatly from the pragmatic, tactical and realistic approach and fresh perspective on people issues that we offer." Once the West Coast office is established, the company plans to start operations in New York and Boston, with offices opening anticipated by January 2006.
