LOS ANGELES, Dec. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Creative Circle, the nation's largest creative staffing agency, makes the move from Southfield to Detroit, becoming the only specialized staffing agency of its kind with a presence in downtown. The move will enable the Detroit team to directly service the growing job market and continue making a significant impact on the city's creative community. Editor's Note: The Detroit engagement timeline and tenant listing are available here.
"We are incredibly excited and can't wait to get to work!" says Derrick Bollin, Creative Circle's Detroit city manager. "We've been watching all of the great things happening downtown, and we want to be where the action is, so the move was an obvious choice. Being a part of Detroit's culture of creation is very important to us."
The new office is located in Chrysler House at 719 Griswold Street, owned and managed by Bedrock Real Estate Services.
"We are thrilled to welcome another innovative, creative company to downtown Detroit," says Dan Mullen, Executive Vice President of Bedrock Real Estate Services. "Our urban core is an inspiring, collaborative business environment for thinkers, doers and innovators. Creative Circle is a perfect addition and another example of a company moving its headquarters to the city to be part of the energy, excitement and endless opportunity."
Creative Circle's team of industry professionals caters to businesses of all sizes with advertising, design, marketing and interactive needs. As a specialized staffing agency, the company provides placement for over 125 job titles, ranging from art directors and graphic designers to copy writers and web developers. With the ability to fill freelance and full-time roles, the Detroit team is well-prepared to service the city's growing job market.
"Our move will benefit both clients and candidates; the location is going to put us right in the middle of everything that continues to happen in the city. Being in the heart of Detroit will provide us the opportunity to network, introduce us to more talent, and allow us establish relationships with the types of client partners we want to work with," continues Bollin.
Since its founding in 2002, Creative Circle has placed hundreds of thousands of creative people nationwide. The company's innovative hiring process includes face-to-face interviews before placement, allowing a consultative and collaborative process that sets the company apart from other creative staffing agencies. Through this, Creative Circle has built relationships with clients at both well-known companies and smaller agencies.
"My hope is that the move also positions us to become a key player and a resource that supports the growth of the many other entrepreneurial businesses emerging in and around downtown and metro Detroit. We want to become the #1 resource and the first place agencies, businesses, and startups alike call for advertising, marketing and creative talent when they need staffing support," Bollin adds.
