Addison Group was founded in 1999 as Addison Professional Financial Search, LLC.

[3] The Chicago-based company established a national presence, adding offices in Boston and Houston before being acquired by the private equity management firm Lake Capital in 2006.

In 2012, the company was officially rebranded as Addison Group following the purchase of an unrelated entity of the same name.

In September 2013, New York-based Trilantic Capital Partners announced a strategic investment partnership with Addison Group, buying a controlling stake from Lake Capital for an undisclosed amount.

Trilantic expressed plans to leverage Addison as a platform for making additional acquisitions in the staffing industry.

The first of such additions was the acquisition of Reston, Virginia-based HireStrategy, which expanded the presence of Addison Group into the Washington, DC metropolitan area for the first time.

Shortly after, Addison Group acquired the Bay Area executive search firm, CVPartners, Inc. CVPartners is headquartered in San Francisco, with 4 offices along the west coast.


Addison Group currently operates 19 offices nationwide, with locations in Austin, Bellevue, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Mountain View, Nashville, New York, Oklahoma City, Reston, Rockville, San Francisco, Schaumburg, Seattle, Tulsa, and Washington, DC.
