Columbus, Ohio – Heitmeyer Consulting, a boutique staffing and consulting firm, has announced plans to expand its operations in the Columbus Region, investing $100,000 and creating 60 new jobs. Location within the Columbus Region has not yet been determined.
Heitmeyer is experiencing rapid growth in its financial services division with its new and existing contracts, and the expansion in the Columbus Region will help the company meet growing demand for its services. The $100,000 investment will primarily go toward building costs, as Heitmeyer’s current office has reached capacity. Hiring for subject matter expertise, project managers, administrative, developer and customer support positions will begin in summer 2018.
“The Columbus Region has helped support Heitmeyer’s growth thus far, and we’re proud to expand our presence here,” said Norm Heitmeyer, founder, Heitmeyer. “We are growing and so is the Columbus Region, so the area is able to provide the scalability and support we need to bolster our presence nationwide.”
“As we continue to tell our story to clients we are excited about our growth potential and how the unique model we have built can be leveraged to provide a value proposition that we feel is unparalled,” added Pat Scott, president, Heitmeyer.
Established in 1999, Heitmeyer provides technical and business-related expertise to companies in the U.S. and Canada. Heitmeyer initially specialized in services for the banking sector, but since its inception, it has successfully expanded into other industries, including healthcare, logistics, retail and energy. The company boasts a focused, client-centric model that allows Heitmeyer to intimately understand their clients needs, saving them both time and money by providing the best solutions, consulting and talent to meet their needs.
