The Reserves Network, Inc., a leading provider of staffing services for the office, industrial, professional and technical markets, has acquired Chicago-based professional staffing firm Mark/Ryan Associates.
Founded in 2004, Mark/Ryan specializes in accounting, finance and office contract and direct hire staffing services with two Greater Chicago offices. The company will maintain the Mark/Ryan name and brand, and operate as an affiliate of The Reserves Network.
Ryan Paquette, founder and president of Mark/Ryan, will continue to oversee business operations. All internal employees will remain with the company.
“Like Mark/Ryan, The Reserves Network is self-made and founded on the values of quality, reliability and integrity,” says Paquette. “We look forward to introducing the enriched benefits and services of this new partnership to our employees and customers.”
The Reserves Network has served the staffing needs of the Illinois business community since 2006. Mark/Ryan’s Chicago and Schaumburg offices add to the company’s six existing locations in Lombard, Matteson, Oak Lawn, Peru, Shorewood and Streator, along with multiple on-sites in the region.
“This is an exciting time for our Illinois market,” says Neil Stallard, CEO of The Reserves Network. “By continuing to deliver the same care and quality service to our customers, candidates and community, we will now be introducing the additional expertise Mark/Ryan brings.”
Adds Nicholas Stallard, chief financial officer of The Reserves Network: “Mark/Ryan joining The Reserves Network’s family of businesses is a perfect compliment to our long-term strategy of continuous growth and further development of service offerings and capabilities.”
Headquartered in the Cleveland suburb of Fairview Park, Ohio, The Reserves Network was founded in 1984. The veteran and family-owned company is privately held, and has received multiple honors for outstanding growth and management excellence. The Reserves Network employs nearly 20,000 employees annually through its more than 40 operating locations in the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast, and works with customers nationwide.
