Planet Forward Opens a Regional Office in Madison to Tap Into the Talented Workforce

Planet Forward eyes Madison as a great location to expand thanks to the presence of the University of Wisconsin as well as businesses like Epic and other high tech companies that raise the quality of the workforce.

Madison, WI, March 10, 2016 --( Cresa Madison was engaged by Planet Forward to help bring their newest regional office to Madison, which will be located at 2801 Crossroads Drive.

With regional offices already located in Chicago, Cleveland, Pensacola, San Francisco, and the United Kingdom, Planet Forward is a global professional staffing and recruitment company specializing in strategic solutions for the Energy, Environmental, Manufacturing, Technology, and Professional Services sectors. They provide experienced consultants across a range of industries delivered by a team of senior-level technical recruiters with the goal of connecting talent with opportunities worldwide.

The new Madison location will enable Planet Forward to reach the increasingly talented work force stemming from the University of Wisconsin, Epic and other highly successful local companies. "We continue to work with companies from all over the country that are choosing Madison for a midwest location," stated Matt Apter, Managing Principal of Cresa Madison. "Companies are taking advantage of the increasingly diverse and sophisticated workforce that Madison is continuing to produce."

"Cresa's services were above and beyond what we expected," said Tony Callahan, Vice President of Planet Forward. "Without Cresa's assistance it's unlikely we would have found such a fantastic spot at highly competitive deal terms. Cresa found us the space where I started my career [in 2004], so there's great nostalgia associated with the location. I would encourage any business to work with Cresa as they really care and go out of their way to make sure you are getting the absolute best."

Matt Apter and Kevin Anderson of Cresa Madison were engaged by Planet Forward to assist in identifying and securing a Madison location that provided flexibility to Downtown Milwaukee, and Chicago.
