Patina Solutions to come to Cincinnati
February 4, 2013 by Sarah
A professional services firm, Patina Solutions, will soon be opening its doors in Cincinnati. The company, which is based in Milwaukee, also opened a location in Columbus last October and in Cleveland approximately three years ago. The Cincinnati location, which will open in the coming weeks, will mark the company’s eighth.
Mike Harris, who serves as Patina Solutions’ CEO and is the founder of the company, visited Cincinnati late last month to meet with possible clients and take care of other business. Harris also founded the company Jefferson Wells in the 1990s, which was purchased in 2001 by Manpower and had accumulated approximately $130m in billing over only a five-year period. Harris stated:
“This is a great business town with lots of quality people.
“This isn’t our first rodeo. We’ve been through it.”
Harris reports that Patina Solutions employs approximately 5,000 professionals, each of whom possess at least 25 years of experience. He said that he is expecting to add around 500 individuals to the pool of available talent in the Cincinnati area.
When businesses and large companies expand into the area, Cincinnati print companies may be utilized for business card printing and other document printing materials. Stationery printers may also be needed to reflect new addresses, contact information, and other details on company stationery and other documents.
Patina Solutions provides professionals and executives to area businesses to fill management positions or other openings on a short or long-term basis. Currently, consumer products and manufacturing account for an estimated 70% of the company’s billings.
