Year to date, the firm’s Columbus office has grown by more than 30% with plans to add additional employees in the back half of the year.
“Our Columbus office was opened to focus on operational improvements and workforce productivity and that’s where we continue to focus,” said Sean Adkins, managing director and leader of the firm’s Columbus office. “Columbus has a high concentration of companies in the industries we serve – specifically manufacturing, distribution, retail, banking and healthcare and we’re growing our staff to be able to serve more local clients – locally.”
