Miami and Atlanta (PRWEB) November 14, 2005
Atlanta-based MarketPro, the United States’ leading executive recruiter for the marketing, advertising, and communications industry, has established a second location in Miami to serve corporations, advertising agencies, and communications firms throughout the state of Florida. Headed by Bridjette Hoilett, managing partner - South Florida, the firm specializes in working on behalf of Florida clients to recruit and place mid-to executive-level marketing professionals in contract, direct-hire, and contract-to-hire positions. The new office is the result of MarketPro’s expansion and focus on Florida business, following an 82 percent growth in company revenues since 2003.
According to Bob Van Rossum, president of MarketPro, “There is a substantial need in South Florida for an effective marketing recruiter, specifically one with a strong track record in diversity hiring. MarketPro has served clients in Florida for several years and our proprietary database of more than 85,000 candidates is rich with local market talent. Opening for business in this fast-growing market is a logical step for MarketPro and it brings us closer to the customers and candidates we serve there.”
The Miami office is the first of several new locations MarketPro will establish in key U.S. markets over the next few years. “Our expansion is due not only to continued growth, but also an increasing demand among organizations of all types, in many states, for MarketPro’s exclusive focus on recruiting and placing highly qualified marketing professionals with speed far above the recruiting industry average,” Van Rossum said.
In addition to its sole focus on serving the marketing, advertising, and communications industry, MarketPro is recognized for its industry-leading ability to recruit talent and fill marketing positions with greater speed than any other executive recruiter. According to Kennedy Information, Inc., the leading information source on executive recruiting, the industry average for a recruiter to fill a position requires 89 days. Estimates from other industry resources suggest the average is much longer. MarketPro averages only 51 days in identifying and connecting a company with a perfect match for its marketing, advertising, or communications professional needs.
“Bridjette has contributed greatly to our recent growth, landed superior talent for our clients, and placed hundreds of professionals in jobs that have significantly advanced their careers,” said Van Rossum. “She’s a top recruiter with acute insights into our clients’ needs, and as a marketing professional herself, she knows what our clients are looking for. She’s proven in finding the right fit for both organization and candidate.”
Hoilett, formerly director of Talent Acquisition for MarketPro, and with nearly 14 years of hands-on experience in multiple marketing disciplines, oversees all aspects of the company’s Florida operations, including professional recruitment, account management, placement, and marketing. Hoilett can be reached at: (305) 389-3300 or email@example.com.
