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.

Patrick and Robbie Ropella joined more than 900 attendees at the recent American Cleaning Institute’s Annual Meeting & Industry Convention in Orlando to connect with industry titans, reconnect with old friends and network with new ones.
Among the many keynote speakers was former presidential candidate and Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. Governor Romney presented insights on the current political environment, themed “Keeping America Strong.”
The convention wasn’t all work and no play, though, as Robbie and friends danced the night away at the Oxiteno concert.

We wanted to commend our team for volunteering and Steve Butts (owner of Martial Arts America) on his involvement sponsoring Santa Rosa’s Back to School Bash.
This exciting event was attended by over 1,800 individuals last Saturday. Great fun was had by all and many families benefited from the generous donations. At first this community event was in danger of being cancelled as the scale and logistics outgrew the venue, but the community pulled together and Steve stepped up to the plate and rounded up 42 sponsors and vendors in just four days!
Thanks to all of those who participated. It’s events like these that make us proud to be a dedicated part of the Santa Rosa Community.
