Staffing and recruitment firm Kelly has acquired Greenwood/Asher & Associates, an executive search firm specialising primarily in higher education, headquartered in Miramar Beach, Florida, which will continue to operate under its own brand.
Peter Quigley, president and chief executive of Troy, Michigan-headquartered Kelly said: “Across the education landscape, the need for talent has never been greater, and Kelly has been diligently identifying adjacencies and growth opportunities to meet the increased demand for experienced education professionals. With the addition of Greenwood/Asher, we are formally expanding our solutions beyond K12 and into the higher education space.”
Nicola Soares, president of Kelly Education, added: “Founders Jan Greenwood and Betty Asher, and their team of dedicated consultants, researchers, and support staff built their practice into a premier executive search firm. Together with Greenwood/Asher, Kelly will identify, develop, and place top talent across the entire education segment.”
Greenwood/Asher president and partner Jan Greenwood, said: “From K12 through higher education, our clients can leverage Kelly’s global talent network and resources to move education forward in new ways.”
The acquisition is Kelly Education’s third in four years. In January it acquired Insight, an education service staffing company with experience of partnering with school districts in Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
