Some exciting changes are happening at AIM Consulting! Business is growing and so are we—across the entire United States.

AIM Consulting is now part of Addison Group, a leading provider of professional staffing services headquartered in Chicago, IL with offices throughout the United States. The acquisition aligns with Addison Group’s strategy to expand its national service footprint and extends AIM Consulting’s high-level IT consulting services and solutions delivery practice to 18 total markets.

The leadership at AIM Consulting is not changing. The company has been flourishing and business will continue as usual.

In addition to extensive experience in IT consulting, AIM brings to Addison Group a robust enterprise customer portfolio. As a result, Addison Group will now offer a more extensive suite of technology solutions and services for the group’s 3,000 customers. Addison Group is a portfolio company of Odyssey Investment Partners, a private equity firm based in New York.

“With the acquisition of AIM Consulting, we saw a clear opportunity to merge Addison Group’s proven performance in IT staffing with a powerful technology solutions and services provider,” said Thomas Moran, CEO of Addison Group. “Given the operational and cultural similarities of our two firms – this partnership is an exciting opportunity to evolve how we bring the right people together with the right companies to do great work.”

“AIM Consulting is proud to join forces with a world-class service organization like Addison Group. We believe this acquisition best positions our firm and its great people for enhanced growth and opportunity. We are excited about expanding our services into new markets and working with such a capable and passionate organization,” said Kyle Guilford, AIM’s CEO and Co-Founder. “We look forward to continuing to win market share in our existing offices while stimulating growth through expanding our services into Addison Group’s vast customer base. Our leadership team is committed to the long-term success of the combined organization and excited about what the future holds for all of us.”
