August 10th, 2017   •      •   Comments Off on Flexicrew Turns 9 Years Old!   

MOBILE, Alabama – Flexicrew Staffing, a leader in the industrial staffing industry, reaches ninth anniversary.

Flexicrew celebrated its 9th business anniversary in July 2017. A Southeast based staffing, professional search, payroll, and HR advisory firm, Flexicrew Staffing has sustained double digit growth over the past nine years.  From modest beginnings in Mobile, Alabama to a full-service firm with 17 offices in 8 states, it has 55 in-house professionals and employs more than 2000 temporary, part-time and contract employees.  The firm specializes in Industrial, Administrative, and Production/Manufacturing Professionals.

Co-founders Bill and Misty Brennan began the company with the vision of providing southeastern companies necessary talent to help manage their workforce and achieve their business goals.

“From start-up to today we have believed that there is value in the assistance we provide our clients and employees,” said CEO Bill Brennan.

“We serve our clients by identifying and attracting qualified candidates that employers can then develop and retain.  We also encourage and assist the careers of the conscientious people we put to work,” said Misty Brennan, Flexicrew Executive VP.

“During the past nine years we have employed tens of thousands of workers – connecting employers who have talent needs with workers looking for opportunities.  We have supplied both workforce management and employee coaching advice that both parties might not find otherwise.”

Flexicrew Staffing provides assistance outside of business in our many locales. The company and its employees want to give back and we have a strong commitment to local charities.

What’s their future vision?  Bill and Misty aspire to being the premier industrial staffing agency and professional search firm across the markets where they operate.  Their goal is to double the size of the company over the next five years.

“Of course, these are ambitious objectives, but we know we can accomplish them because of our staff’s excellence and our loyal service to clients and employees.  In many ways, we’re only at the beginning of our journey!” said Bill Brennan.
