Trilantic North America, a private equity firm, has acquired Addison Group, a Chicago-based professional services firm focusing on talent services and consulting, from Odyssey Investment Partners LLC.

Addison Group provides talent services including staffing services, recruiting executive research and its consulting brands, AIM Consulting, Bridgepoint Consulting, DLC, and ArcLight. The firm offers a full suite of resources through technology, finance & accounting, healthcare, administration, HR and digital marketing industries.

Since its investment from Odyssey in 2016, Addison tripled in size and expanded across new markets and service offerings. The firm currently employs 2,200 people across 32 offices.

“Addison Group is a market-leading business in both the talent solutions and consulting markets with tremendous runway for continued growth,” said Jeffrey McKibben, Senior Managing Principal at Odyssey. “It has been a privilege working alongside the management team to execute on our strategic goals. We wish them continued success as they embark on the next phase of their journey.”

Houlihan Lokey and Credit Suisse served as financial advisors to Addison in connection with the transaction. Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal counsel to Addison.
