Velocity Resource Group, a recruitment solutions provider that leverages a global workforce, is pleased to announce the official opening of its new corporate office in Tampa, FL, on Nov. 1, 2016.

The Tampa office will serve as Velocity’s new headquarters with the transition of corporate functions over the next two years. The company will maintain its Asian headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand, with satellite offices in Aurora, IL and Milwaukee, WI. Relocation to 501 E. Kennedy Blvd. in Downtown Tampa is a part of the recruiting company’s national expansion plan and search for a friendlier business climate.

In September, Florida Governor Rick Scott announced Velocity’s plans to relocate corporate headquarters to Tampa. Governor Scott said, “I am proud to announce Velocity Resource Group has chosen to relocate their global headquarters to Florida from Illinois and create 50 new jobs for Tampa families. Our low tax, business-friendly environment is why Florida is clearly the best choice for growing companies like Velocity to succeed, and we will keep working to attract even more job creators to our state. I welcome Velocity Resource Group to the Sunshine State.”

John Fortino, Co-founder and Senior Managing Partner of Velocity Resource Group, said, “After visiting many times to meet with clients here, we fell in love with Tampa and the surrounding areas. We’ve been looking to expand and realized Tampa was the perfect place to better serve our clients nationally, while also keeping pace with the rate of growth we need.”

According to Fortino, a complete corporate transition will take place over the next two years, but new and existing clients may now contact Velocity through both Aurora and Tampa offices.

“While our goal is always to find better ways to serve our existing clients, our move to Tampa allows us to extend our services to any and all companies seeking an unparalleled strategic advantage in recruiting efficiency,” said Fortino. “Our new office is in the heart of a thriving city with a rapidly growing, diverse economy. With an office located in Downtown Tampa, we have the opportunity to leverage all of the assets the Tampa area offers to sustain our growth.”
