Brendan Flood The Deal Maker!

"The secret to my success, is that I have been very lucky in my career to have worked with some very good people" - Brendan Flood - CEO and Chairman of Staffing 360 Solutions talks to Recruiter Magazine, in his most frank interview to date.

Brendan is the driving force behind the Group's growing portfolio of subsidiaries and Colin Cottell, went to meet him to find out why the deal with CBSbutler was such a great event. 

It's been nearly 6 months since the acquisition of CBSbutler and First Pro Georgia and with an expected boost to revenue by nearly 50%. Brendan Flood is the deal maker that can do no wrong when it comes to strategically buying and building businesses that fit in with Staffing 360 Solutions "strategic pillars".

"All our businesses are driven around the talent set of the candidate rather than the industry, so CBSbutler ticked an enormous box for engineering and related skills in the UK.....CBSbutler was a culturally good fit, a well-run organisation, with a happy crew"

The NASDAQ listed recruiter went on to explain how transformative the deal with CBSbutler was, as CBSbutler is twice the size of their already existing UK businesses, Longbridge Recruitment and The JM Group. With several offices throughout the UK and US, there has never been a better time to join CBSbutler and the Staffing 360 family. 

Brendan Flood, in his interview, revealed some of the goals for the Group. His sights are firmly set on organic growth and brand development, with financial ambitions to double its annualised revenue to $500m (£395m) in the next 24 months. His philosophy of "fair and truthful" recruitment sets the tone for the future of the whole brand.

"The acquisition of CBSbutler presents a great opportunity to win business in the burgeoning aerospace and defence markets in the Carolinas. Monroe Staffing Services can manage the compliance, he explains while tapping into CBSbutler's candidate database of skilled contractors and permanent staff."
