Gridiron Capital, LLC (“Gridiron”), is pleased to announce an investment in Motion Recruitment Partners (“MRP” or “the Company”), a provider of value-added recruitment services and solutions. Based in Boston, MA, MRP’s service offerings include Recruitment Process Outsourcing, which assumes the sourcing and hiring process for Fortune 1000 companies with high volume hiring, and Agency recruiting work, which includes IT-specific permanent and contractor placement services for startup and middle market companies. The Company markets its RPO services under the brand name Seven Step RPO and its Agency recruiting services under the brand names Jobspring Partners and Workbridge Associates.
MRP’s growth has been driven by its strong senior leadership team, which has developed and fostered a unique business model and a performance-based culture. The Company is poised for continued growth across its business lines as companies increasingly focus on the importance of talent in their organizations and recognize the value proposition of focused recruiting and staffing providers. MRP is well-positioned to capitalize on this trend with companies across the size spectrum, whether it is a company hiring one employee per year through MRP’s agency business or a company hiring 5,000+ employees per year through MRP’s RPO business.
Ms. Beth Gilfeather, CEO of MRP stated, “We are proud about what we have been able to accomplish and feel strongly that the company is poised for significant growth. We were specifically drawn to Gridiron due to their operational experience and feel they are the ideal partner to help us identify and capitalize on a multitude of growth opportunities. We expect great success from this partnership.”
Mr. Thomas A. Burger Jr., Managing Partner of Gridiron stated, “We are excited about the opportunity to work with the MRP team to build on their accomplishments. We see numerous opportunities to add value to the Company through our prior experience with outsourced services companies as well as our strong relationships with potential corporate clients.”
“We were immediately drawn to the strength of the MRP management team,” said Will Hausberg, Vice President at Gridiron. “Not only does the team have a long tenure of success at MRP, but their enthusiasm and drive to build the business are palpable. We are thrilled to work with them to grow the business.”
