Company Opens London Office and Hires Industry Expert Asad Balal to Support the Expansion 

NEW YORK, NY. – Solomon Page, a specialty niche provider of staffing solutions and executive search, announces the international expansion of Clinical Resource Network (CRN). Launched as a division of Solomon Page in 2002, CRN supports customized staffing solutions for a range of clients—from Biotechs and CROs to pharmaceutical and medical device companies across North America.

The first step in the expansion is a new office location in the United Kingdom, located at 1 St Katharine’s Way, St Katharine’s & Wapping, in London. In conjunction, CRN has appointed Asad Balal as Senior Vice President, who recently joined the company from Skills Alliance where he acted as a Global Business Leader the past five years. Mr. Balal will be leading the efforts of expanding the company’s presence in a variety of overseas markets.

“This growth represents a new stage of our evolution,” said Aly Schlosser, who co-founded CRN in 2002. “We are thrilled to welcome Asad to our team and are confident he will make a measurable impact on our clients’ global study planning. We believe his strong knowledge and experience in these markets will make a critical difference in our ability to provide increased support to our clients and ignite exponential growth.”

“As the industry evolves to a globalized view of its clinical studies we are positioned to respond to our current and prospective clients’ needs to accomplish their strategic objectives. Understanding the talent landscape of every market we support is crucial to success,” said David Iannucci, Managing Director of CRN. “This new international reach provides the bandwidth to expand our relationships and we foresee CRN continuing to grow our team as opportunities arise.”

The Company Acquires Retained Executive Search Firm E.A. Hughes & Co.

NEW YORK, NY, January 28, 2019 – Solomon Page, a specialty niche provider of staffing solutions and executive search, announces the acquisition of E.A. Hughes & Co., a leading retained executive search firm servicing the retail and consumer markets. Founded by Elaine Hughes in 1991, E.A. Hughes & Co. has advised clients in their strategic growth initiatives through a unique and comprehensive approach to the search process.

The E.A. Hughes team will continue to be led by Elaine Hughes and will join the Fashion & Beauty Division of Solomon Page, led by Sue Lamoreaux and Patty Hoban Scott in the full-time and freelance fashion markets, respectively. This will further complement the excellent reputation the company holds both geographically and strategically.

“I am thrilled by the synergy this acquisition will provide to each of our clients,” said Elaine Hughes. “It will allow the team to deliver unpreceded talent acquisition encompassing the C-suite executive placements to temporary hires from a single source”.

Sue Lamoreaux adds, “We are very excited to have the opportunity to partner with Elaine and her team. She has influenced the careers of many senior executives in retail and fashion and advocated for women in the industry by example and involvement in many organizations during the past three decades.”

Simultaneously Solomon Page has increased its capabilities in the beauty segment, recently adding Lisa Berger to the team to spearhead the expansion. Ms. Berger has a proven track record in strategic talent acquisition and will advise beauty brands as they seek to build their organizations, in addition to providing relevant content and access to diverse channel partnerships.

“In the ever-evolving landscape of human capital and business models, our goal is to adapt to shifts in the marketplace and create a multi-faceted approach to our clients,” said Lloyd Solomon, Founding Partner and Managing Director of Solomon Page. “Our existing footprint coupled with E.A. Hughes’ established presence uniquely qualifies us as a progressive and forward-thinking brand in the new world of the retail, fashion, and beauty industries. Additionally, our strong and longstanding relationships in the financial services and private equity communities, led by Founding Partner and Managing Director Scott Page, uniquely position our firm as a strategic partner and advisor during this transformational time in the industry.”

Solomon Page Announces the Launch of Legal Services Division and Opens Los Angeles Office Location
The Company Hires Legal Staffing Experts Julie Favetta and Wendy Sullivan to Lead the Division

 

NEW YORK, NY, April 19, 2017 – Solomon Page, a specialty niche provider of staffing solutions and executive search, announced the addition of Julie Favetta and Wendy Sullivan to support the recently launched Legal Services Division. This rounds out the company’s service offerings to seven functional divisions and seven industry divisions.

Favetta and Sullivan, with a combined thirty years of experience servicing legal staffing, join Solomon Page at an opportune time. Favetta, East Coast Managing Director, and Sullivan, West Coast Managing Director, are both focused on accelerating the document review and managed review service offerings, along with contract legal staffing.

“It’s no secret that digital technology has transformed the document review process, and law firms and corporations have shifted their focus to outsourcing,” said Lloyd Solomon, Founder and Managing Director, Solomon Page. “What has been missing is the lack of customer service with the solutions provided. With Favetta and Sullivan in place, we’re better equipped to continually improve our company offerings and strategic partnerships, enabling law firms and corporate legal departments to more efficiently succeed nationwide.”

To address the expansion of service offerings, Solomon Page increased its presence in California with the opening of the Los Angeles office. The office, located at 515 S. Flower Street, is the tenth office location for the company and will house the West Coast Legal Services team along with a dedicated space for Managed Document Review. Furthermore, legal recruiting and back office teams supporting the launch have been added on the East and West Coasts.

“I’m joining the Solomon Page executive team at a true industry inflection point,” says Favetta. “As a team, Wendy and I will work to build customizable client solutions in an ever-changing industry. With the resources of a large company but the agility of a small firm, Solomon Page is the perfect partner for this journey. ”

“Our goal in launching this division is to bring personal service back to the forefront of legal staffing, which has been absent in recent years,” adds Sullivan. “The new Los Angeles office offers accessibility of this service offering to the California market.”
