Round and round she goes. That would be the revolving door at Sitrick and Company, which has seen a number staffers and execs come and go since the beginning of the year. Among the departures were EVP Glenn Bunting, who is now CEO and president of GFBunting LLC; David Satterfield, who is now EVP at GFBunting; Tom Vogel who had been a practice leader at the firm; and Chris Marlin, who had been the lone person in the firm’s Miami office. With his departure, the office closed.
According to Sitrick’s website, there are about 50 people in the firm’s offices nationwide, including a new office in Denver. Mike Sitrick, chairman and CEO of the firm, told us Aaron Curtiss has moved to Colorado to open the Denver office and there’s another planned for London.
Moreover, the firm has brought on and brought back staffers, with more hiring in the works.
In one case, Sitrick said there were unique circumstances that led to one departure. Joseph Giunta, the firm’s GC, left, according to Sitrick, because of redundancy. The firm was purchased by Resources Global Professionals in 2009 and the new parent company came with a general counsel.
“While a significant number of our people have been with the firm for 10, 15 and even 20+ years, people come and people go and changes are sometimes necessary,” Sitrick wrote us in an email.
The San Francisco office has dropped to three staffers, but Lance Ignon, who is leading that office is looking for additional staff, according to Sitrick.* And Jason Booth, who had been with the firm and left to join investment firms Steel Partners and Steel Partners Japan, rejoined this year. Michael Claes joined the firm’s New York office earlier this year.
*Correction: This line previously said that Ignon worked in the Silicon Valley office. It has been corrected to the San Francisco office. Ignon has been with the firm since 2007.
