Firm changes name to Advancement LLC
January 28 2008
Advancement LLC is the new name for Contract Professionals of Ohio, a Solon OH technical staffing firm. The company said it began in 1971 as Advancement LLC but changed its name in 2000 after it merged with Contract Professionals Inc. of Waterford MI. President and CEO Arthur Healan acquired the company from Contract Professionals last year and decided to return to the original name to highlight its commitment to the Cleveland market.
"There's a wealth of opportunities for technical professionals within Northeastern Ohio," Healan said. "While the area has lost many manufacturing jobs, other industries have come in and replaced those, some of which didn't exist 10 or 20 years ago," Healan said.
