DETROIT – Strategic Staffing Solutions (S3), the Detroit-based global information technology and business services company, has opened its 24th branch location, in Hartford, Connecticut. This is the third branch the company has opened in 2011.
“S3 has maintained a presence in Hartford for several years, but with the recent increase in demand for our services, we captured a market share in this location and determined it was time to open a branch,” said Cynthia J. Pasky, S3 president and CEO. “We have a strong customer base in Connecticut now and already have plans for expansion in the next six months to a year.”
In the last five months, S3’s presence in Hartford has nearly tripled in number of consultants. The Hartford branch is currently providing project solutions and staff augmentation services for two national insurance companies.
S3 placed Kristina DiMartino at the Hartford location to serve as branch manager. DiMartino joined S3 earlier this year as manager of the company’s Boston branch and brings significant experience working in the insurance and financial industries on the east coast.
“Kristina’s work on the east coast continues to produce great results and her leadership in Connecticut will be an asset to S3 and the Hartford community,” said Pasky.
Early this year, S3 announced expansion into two other branch locations, in Denver Colorado and Cheshire, England. These three new branches in 2011 are a continuation of the company’s aggressive growth pattern. S3 opened in 1990 and has posted consecutive annual growth for the past 21 years, with 2010 revenue hitting $205 million.
S3’s successes have been noted internationally with recognitions including Top Business by Diversitybusiness.com and a Michigan Economic Bright Spot by Corp! Magazine and rankings including 31st in the nation’sTop 50 Fastest Growing Women-led Companies by Women Entrepreneur magazine, 19th in the Top 500 U.S. Women Owned Business by Diversitybusiness.com, and Top 10 Largest Diversity Staffing Firms in the US by Staffing Industry Report.
