However, it was also important to celebrate my father’s vision and success.
Parsippany, NJ (PRWEB) May 13, 2008
A.J. O’Connor Associates recently celebrated its 25-year anniversary with company-wide business growth over the last year. Growth includes nearly 100 percent increase in career transition services, 66 percent increase in organizational development services and 33 percent increase in coaching services.
The company was founded in 1983 to serve the growing need for career transition services. Since that time, A.J. O’Connor Associates has grown on the premise that the company’s success is measured through their client’s success.
“It was my father’s vision to create a very individualized boutique approach to this business,” said Andrew J. O’Connor III, president of A.J. O’Connor Associates. “We strive to provide highly individualized services and programs to our clients with personal attention.”
The company recently celebrated its 25-year anniversary with an evening dedicated to its customers. The evening was also a celebration of Andrew J. O’Connor II and the business that he, along with his family, built. O’Connor Sr. passed away just ten days before the celebration.
“It was our goal to bring our clients together and celebrate our 25 years in business with their support of us over those 25 years,” said O’Connor. “However, it was also important to celebrate my father’s vision and success.”
Patricia A. Lee, senior vice president of human resources and organizational capabilities for Wyndham Worldwide, has worked with A.J. O’Connor Associates for nearly 20 years with three different companies. Lee attended the celebration, which included a cocktail hour and a special wine blending competition.
“It was an exceptional evening filled with a lot of energy and excitement,” said Lee. “A.J. O’Connor is a family run organization and it was clear that this event was not about sales and marketing—it was about the people.”
In the last few years, A.J. O’Connor expanded its services to include human capital consulting services in the areas of leadership, executive coaching and assessment, organizational development and talent management. The company plans to continue growing by expanding its global capabilities.
“A.J. O’Connor has grown, expanded and changed concurrent with or in advance of my company’s needs,” said Lee. “I’ve continued to work with them over the years because of their exceptional staff and because they are an organization that is very resourceful. Andy is the guy I call before I know what I need.”
