SSG Name Will Remain; Co-Founders Sally Stetson and John Salveson Will Continue to Lead Firm
Salveson Stetson Group (SSG), a multi-specialty retained executive search firm that was recently named one of America’s top executive recruiting firms by Forbes, announced today that it has signed a letter of intent to be acquired by Management Partners Inc. (MPI), a human capital consulting company based in Rockford, IL. Following the transaction, which is expected to close by year-end, the firm will continue to operate as SSG under the leadership of co-founders Sally Stetson and John Salveson, who will also take on additional executive responsibilities for MPI.
Salveson Stetson Group will join the MPI family of companies, which includes Furst Group, one of the nation’s most highly regarded healthcare search firms, and NuBrick Partners, a leadership consulting firm. Together, the three firms will offer clients a wide range of executive search, assessment and leadership solutions.
Salveson Stetson Group and Furst Group are both members of IIC Partners, one of the top 10 retained executive search groups in the world with 54 offices in 36 countries.
“When we met MPI’s Bob Clarke and Sherrie Barch as new members of IIC Partners, we knew immediately that they were exceptional leaders and business people,” said Stetson. “We realized that joining forces would strengthen both of our firms, drive new business growth and expand our reach and capabilities.”
“By joining with MPI, Salveson Stetson Group becomes a much richer resource to our clients,” said Salveson. “We are excited to have the opportunity to offer our clients a broader set of talent and leadership development solutions through adding NuBrick Partners’ and Furst Group’s capabilities to our portfolio of services.”
