Ropella Group Acquires Fred Anthony Group

Posted: 02/23/2015  Category:    ShareThis Article

The Ropella Group recently acquired the Fred Anthony Group, an Executive Search firm specializing in the chemical and coatings industries with almost 40 years’ experience, based in Chicago. 

Principal Fred Anthony will serve as the Vice President of Key Corporate Accounts for the Ropella Group in their drive to expand and grow executive retained search services at the C-suite level for the Fortune 500 chemical and coatings industry clients. 

"As we (The Ropella Group) have spent the last 30 years working very hard to position ourselves as the world's leading executive search firm primarily serving the global chemical industry, we are very excited to be acquiring and merging Anthony & Associates. Fred has been a worthy direct competitor  with clients that tell us he has a great reputation for first class relationship management.  

Fred also has an extensive background serving the coatings industry - a segment that we too have built a significant following in.

Together we look forward to driving the Ropella Group across the 5 million dollar per year revenue mark and continuing our 3 year pace of a 31%/year average growth rate.  With over 35 total associates (many with just a few years' experience) in our Pensacola, Florida headquarters, combined with the use of our SMART Search System for training our associates and processing our searches... our productivity levels are climbing very fast.

We are also building out an additional 15,000 square foot addition to our existing corporate headquarters, with enough office space for an additional 50 associates, with the goal of hitting $10 million in revenue in the next 5 years.”

--Patrick Ropella, CEO & Chairman

The Ropella Group plans to open a new office in the near future in the downtown Chicago area with Mr. Anthony as the Principal Operations Executive.
