At Addison Group, we value the people that make our organization great and allow us to deliver exceptional partnerships to the clients and candidates we support. We love bringing on new talent to help us move our organization forward and contribute to our outstanding culture.

We are excited to announce that we will be expanding our Finance & Accounting Talent Solutions practice to Salt Lake City, Utah! We’re thrilled to be in this location and start providing people roles in this area. Michael Jouris will be building out this new exciting initiative alongside Jeri Price. We met with Michael to share insights into what he is most excited about when building the Salt Lake City office.

What are you most proud of during your journey with Addison Group?

There have been too many to count. I’m just proud that I stayed consistent through the highs and lows over the last 3 years. That resilience has given me growth opportunities within Addison Group, including opening the Salt Lake City office.

What are you most excited about starting this new office location in Salt Lake City?

Getting into an up-and-coming market! SLC is reminiscent of Denver before it ‘boomed’, and there is so much opportunity for us. What’s most exciting is starting this office alongside my peers and leaders from Denver.

What are your main goals with this new initiative?

Establishing the Addison Group people-first culture in this new market and incorporating the successful elements we’ve seen from the Denver Finance & Accounting Talent Solutions in Salt Lake City.

What sets Addison Group’s Finance and Accounting Talent Solutions apart from other organizations?

Our offerings are unique because Addison Group is truly one big team! Individual success contributes to team success, and it’s the strong partnership we have across our multiple talent solutions offerings and offices that allows us to succeed the way we have. We have already seen this with our recent Salt Lake City deal. Because Addison Group established such a collaborative mentality across our multiple offices and practice areas, we had the opportunity to help not only an up-and-coming business in Salt Lake City but a candidate find the next step in their career.

What is the biggest career lesson you’ve learned so far?

My biggest lesson would be keeping a level head while you ride the highs and lows of this business. We all have weeks that make us feel on top of the world; we also have ones we’d like to forget. Stay consistent and keep your foot on the gas pedal.

What is one thing you want your clients and candidates to know about Addison’s culture?

Addison Group, starting with our CEO Tom Moran and encompassing everyone else across the organization, cares about its employees’ professional growth and development and personal growth and development. Because of that, it feels like a second family that you see every day.
