Company builds upon presence in Ohio market, providing more talent nationwide
Patina Solutions, a firm that provides proven, accomplished professionals with 25+ years of experience for key projects and engagements, has expanded its presence with a second Ohio-based office in Columbus. The company also has an office in Cleveland and is planning to open a third office in Cincinnati early next year.
"We've been operating in Cleveland since 2009, and we're seeing an increased need from companies for the precisely matched expertise of our experienced professionals in the flexible, on-demand manner we provide," said Mike Harris, CEO of Patina Solutions. "By opening an office in Columbus, we will now have a greater local presence and a better ability to help companies solve problems, leverage opportunities, fill expertise and resource gaps."
The Patina Solutions Columbus office is led by Sherry Borchelt, managing partner of Patina Solutions' Ohio market, and Shawn McGrath, who has been appointed as managing director.
"We are building a Portfolio of Talent® based in the Columbus area consisting of professionals with 25 or more years of experience who want to work on high-level, rewarding projects in interim executive and management roles," said Borchelt. "And, we are helping companies complete projects and accelerate growth, while staying flexible. It's a win-win situation for the Columbus business community, who can not only tap into talent from across Ohio, but also from our seven other locations."
Founded in 2009, Patina Solutions has made a positive professional impact on more than 200 companies and, in addition to the Ohio-based offices, has locations in Chicago, Boston, Tampa, Milwaukee and Madison, Wis. The company also opened an office in Hong Kong, serving the entire Asia Pacific region, and recently raised more than $1 million in funding from individual, private angel investors to continue advancing the company's accelerated growth.
Patina Solutions' Columbus office is located at 4200 Regent Street, Suite 200, and can be reached at 614.944.5202.
