MarketPro Expands to Miami

ATLANTA MarketPro, a marketing and advertising recruiter based here, said it has opened an office in Miami.

Bridjette Hoilett, who was elevated from director of talent acquisition in Atlanta to managing partner in Miami, is leading the new office.

Hoilett will begin assembling a staff that the company said it expects to reach 10 people in the next few years. MarketPro expects to place at least 50 people in marketing and advertising jobs during the next 12 months.

“There is a substantial need in South Florida for an effective marketing recruiter, specifically one with a strong track record in diversity hiring,” said Bob Van Rossum, president of MarketPro. “Opening for business in this fast-growing market is a logical step for MarketPro and it brings us closer to the customers and candidates we serve there.”

The company plans to open offices in other cities during the next several years, but declined to name which markets it is targeting.

“Our expansion is due not only to continued growth but also an increasing demand among organizations of all types, in many states, for MarketPro’s exclusive focus on recruiting and placing highly qualified marketing professionals with speed far above the recruiting industry average,” Van Rossum said.

MarketPro is a 10-year-old, independent, woman-owned business that helps marketing professionals find mid- to executive-level jobs positions in the industry.
