CHICAGO, June 24, 2008 – BPI US Partners, a leading HR consulting and coaching firm, today announced plans to continue expanding its operations through the opening of two new offices in Denver and Milwaukee. The addition of these offices, and the opening of the company’s first location outside the Midwest, is part of the company’s broader strategy to grow its presence throughout the country.

With the addition of Denver and Milwaukee, BPI US Partners is a stronger position to provide HR coaching and consulting services to clients – from local and regional professional services firms to members of the Fortune 500 – with eight office locations in Colorado, Illinois, Missouri and Wisconsin.

“The long term vision for BPI US Partners is to be the North American leader in HR consulting and coaching services focused on driving organizational performance and supporting individual success,” said Juan Luis Goujon, chief executive officer, BPI US Partners. “I am confident that our new offices in Denver and Milwaukee, and the strong team of professionals we have in place at these locations, will help us serve current clients and build important new relationships with companies and individuals in the Midwest and beyond.”

The Milwaukee office, BPI US Partners’ second in Wisconsin, is scheduled to open in early fall and will be located in the northwest region of the city. Providing a full range of services including transition coaching, executive coaching, leadership development and other HR coaching services, the office will have a staff of three HR/coaching professionals and will be managed by Michael McDermott, Managing Director, Wisconsin, and the current head of the Racine, Wisconsin office.

“Given the rapid growth and success of our first Wisconsin location, it is clear that this market is a strong match with the BPI US Partners service model,” McDermott said. “Having become a well-known and highly respected partner to a number of major companies in southeast Wisconsin, we see there is ample opportunity to continue our expansion by developing new relationships with the broad array of businesses throughout the state.”

Well-located within the Denver Technological Center, one of the country’s premier business centers located in the city’s southeast corridor, the BPI US Partners Denver office is scheduled to open on July 1, 2008. Like the company’s Milwaukee office, the Denver location will offer a comprehensive set of HR coaching and consulting services.

“Denver is not only the epicenter of the Rocky Mountain region, it is also a rapidly-growing metropolitan market that represents considerable opportunity for our company,” said Kevin Pallardy, managing director and head of the Denver office, BPI US Partners. “As the headquarters location of choice for many Fortune 500 companies, we are confident Denver is an ideal geography for us as BPI US Partners increases its presence from coast-to-coast.”

BPI US Partners began establishing a North American presence late last year when its parent company BPI Group, the world’s third-largest career management firm based in Paris, France, acquired Chicagobased Scherer Schneider Paulick LLC (SSP).

In the months following the acquisition, BPI US Partners has sought opportunities to grow and expand – through strategic partnerships, acquisitions and the opening of new office locations. The company anticipates opening as many as 10 additional offices in North America over the next two years.
