Mix Talent currently has 20 full-time employees at its headquarters in Columbus. By bringing together a team with years of experience in biotech and healthcare sectors, along with new approaches, the company has been able to rapidly scale a successful business in this high-growth space.
The company sought to establish a centralized U.S. hub and expand its client base, while limiting tax and operational costs.
“We are thrilled to expand our workforce by 150% in the Columbus region and strengthen our headquarters in this central U.S. location. Our experience and location in Central Ohio have allowed us to rapidly acquire market share, and the region and state’s business friendly community and its robust workforce will allow us to grow our client base and increase revenue.
While much of our current revenue is generated by placing talent along the coasts, the life science innovation and investment developing in Columbus with premier research institutions like Battelle, The Ohio State University and Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and companies like Sarepta, Forge Biologics, Clarametyx and Andelyn Biosciences, further support our decision to expand Mix in Columbus” - Mickey Shimp, president, Mix Talent
Mix Talent will continue to grow in central Ohio because it will allow the company to swiftly acquire even more market share. The state’s business climate has also proved favorable for the company.
Ohio’s business climate is structured to prevent unnecessary regulatory roadblocks and promote innovation, so companies can serve customers and grow swiftly. Additionally, companies can operate at a fraction of the cost compared to coastal locations, as Ohio’s lower cost of living and housing mean an overall lower cost of doing business.
