Meridian Celebrates 30 Years!

Congratulations to TEAM Member Meridian Business Support who are celebrating their 30th Birthday!

Meridian’s first branch was founded in Altrincham in 1989, by Chairman Rod Kavanagh, where the company headquarters remained until 2016 when they moved to new state-of-the-art offices near Manchester Airport. 

In January 2017 Derek Skelton was appointed as Managing Director of the Industrial sector and within a few months, he took additional responsibility of the Office & Professional and Health operations. In September 2017, Derek was promoted to Chief Executive Officer for the Meridian Group.

Today Meridian’s extensive network of branches provides over 4,000 temporary staff on a weekly basis and places over 1,000 permanent candidates each year. Employing 245 staff, the company fills in excess of 200,000 bookings every year, successfully supplying to over 1,500 companies.

Derek Skelton Commented:

“It is an awesome achievement for any company to celebrate their 30th Anniversary and I feel very proud to be leading such a successful business which is full of fantastically talented people who have been making a difference to recruitment for the last 30 years!

The future is bright for Meridian; over the last 30 years there have been some tough times but the business has navigated its way through those and we have big plans for growth! The best is yet to come for Meridian - watch this space!”

To celebrate this fantastic landmark, on 24 May Meridian held 80s style celebrations around the branches and at their Head Office. The branches were decorated and there was 1980s themed dress down day.
