LaSalle Network Opens Office in San Francisco

CHICAGO, July 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LaSalle Network, a recruiting and staffing firm headquartered in Chicago, announced today the opening of its San Francisco/Bay Area office. This is the firm's fourth office, and first to open in California.

Founded in 1998, LaSalle Network was one of the first staffing firms in Chicago to provide staffing services for temporary, temporary-to-permanent and permanent roles for accounting and finance professionals. LaSalle has since expanded to service the areas of Marketing, Human Resources, Administrative, Customer Service/Call Center, and Technology.

"This is an exciting time for us," said Tom Gimbel, Founder & CEO of LaSalle Network. "With the growth trajectory we are on, we are in the position to expand and are looking forward to taking our brand and team to the West Coast."

LaSalle has named Allison Penning Branch Manager of the Bay Area office. Penning has been with LaSalle for four years, most recently as a unit manager in the Chicago office.

As the only staffing firm in the country named to Staffing Industry Analysts' list of "Best Staffing Firms to Work For" in the country for five consecutive years, as well as on Staffing Industry Analysts' list of "Fastest Growing Staffing Firms" in the country for the last 3 years, LaSalle is in prime position for expansion.

LaSalle Network has experienced revenue growth every year since inception in 1998, being named to Inc. Magazine's 500/5000 "Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in America" list for the past eight years.

LaSalle has also grown its staff by 80 percent in 2014, and has among the highest retention rates in the industry with less than a 3 percent attrition rate. In recognition of this, LaSalle has won more than 40 culture-based awards, including Crain's Chicago Business "Best Places to Work" for the past two years and recognized as one of the 5 best small companies to work by Chicago Tribune.

"I am so excited and honored to be a part of LaSalle's West Coast expansion," said Allison Penning, LaSalle Network San Francisco Branch Manager. "Given our high growth in Chicago and national recognition, it only seems natural to make the move to San Francisco where the job opportunities are endless. Our unique approach to recruiting has already proven to be a breath of fresh air for our San Francisco clients and candidates."

The new LaSalle Network office is located on the 12th floor of 580 California St., San Francisco, CA 94104, and hours of operation are Monday through Friday 7:30amPDT to 6pmPDT.
