7 Jun, 2017
Governor Tom Wolf was joined by Frank Recruitment Group leadership to celebrate that the company, a technology-focused employee recruitment business, has established its new regional headquarters in Philadelphia. The facility will result in the creation of 250 jobs.
“Frank Recruitment Group’s decision to establish their new regional headquarters in Philadelphia speaks to both the strategic location of the area and the quality workforce available,” said Governor Wolf. “The great institutions of higher learning in the Philadelphia offer an impressive talent pool to companies like Frank Recruitment Group. I wish them success as they continue to invest in the state and our stellar workforce.”
Frank Recruitment Group has expanded its East Coast footprint through the lease of a 21,300-square-foot office to serve as a new regional headquarters. The office is located at 1801 Market Street in the heart of Philadelphia’s Central Business District. The company will make a total capital investment of $1.8 million in the project and has also committed to the creation of 250 new, full-time jobs over the next three years.
James Lloyd-Townshend, CEO of Frank Recruitment Group, said of the expansion to Philadelphia: “Frank Recruitment Group is growing at an exceptional rate with nine worldwide locations. The addition of our Philadelphia office allows us to grow our North American business further with the addition of another 250 employees to our global headcount, with over 100 of these employees already working from our Philadelphia office. Philadelphia is a fantastic city with a large pool of candidates from excellent universities, which will enable us to continue our growth strategy, while creating career opportunities in the center of Philadelphia.”
Frank Recruitment Group received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $350,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant and $500,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs.
“Today’s tour of Frank Recruitment Group and accompanying roundtable discussion were an excellent opportunity to showcase Philadelphia’s ongoing business development efforts to Governor Wolf,” said Duane Bumb, Senior Deputy Commerce Director for Business Development. “Staff from the City’s Department of Commerce often partner with the Governor’s Action Team to attract new companies to Philadelphia. Frank Recruitment Group’s decision to open an office here is one of many great examples of what can be accomplished when we work together to show businesses across the U.S. and the world what Pennsylvania has to offer.”
The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the City of Philadelphia Commerce Department.
