Durden, an executive with 19 years of experience in the technology staffing industry, including time with both Kforce and TEKsystems, has a terrific background in launching, rebuilding and scaling regions during his professional career. Durden is being chartered with further developing and expanding Eliassen Group's presence in the southwest, and building an organization that will support sustained growth. Chad's growth plans for the region will begin with the Dallas area location previously established by the company, with rapid expansion into a second location in Texas opening soon in Austin, which will become his base of operations for the Southwest Region.
"I am thrilled to be joining a company with such an outstanding reputation in the industry as Eliassen Group," Durden said. "From the moment I met the company leaders, their passion and commitment to expanding nationally in a remarkably competitive industry was apparent and very compelling … it pulled me right in!"

"Our pursuit of national expansion requires the addition of talented individuals with a real passion for driving results while positively impacting the lives of our employees, consultants and clients," said David MacKeen Jr., CEO of Eliassen Group. "With Chad on board, we can aggressively continue our pursuit of growth in the Southwest Region, as we are confident in both his leadership abilities and his passion for the business."
