IT workforce solutions leader grows to accommodate Austin’s booming technology industry
May 1, 2013 (Austin, Texas) – MDI Group (MDI), a leading national technology services provider, announced today that it has expanded its national footprint with a new Austin office location and staff team. The expansion comes on the heels of MDI’s recent office opening in Fort Worth, for a total of three Texas and seven national locations.
Austin’s technology landscape continues to grow, attracting startups and established enterprise companies alike. As a result, Staffing Industry Analysts places Austin in the top 20 temporary IT staffing markets. MDI aims to grow alongside this technology hub and anticipates having more than 20 employees in Austin by the end of 2013. MDI has already signed its first Austin client – a global research, technology and consulting firm – where its consultant is helping develop a real-time patient registry to improve outcomes and overall population health by harnessing clinical data and giving clinicians evidence-based prompts at the point-of-care.
The North Austin office will be overseen by managing director, Daryl Fox, who has nearly 25 years of IT business development experience. Fox was a strategic account executive based in MDI’s Atlanta office for more than six years prior to her appointment as managing director of the new Austin office. A graduate of the University of Texas, Fox began her career in Austin before heading east.
“After 16 years, I’m excited to return to Austin and leverage my local IT experience and relationships on behalf of MDI,” Fox said. “We’ve hit the ground running and are pleased to have landed our first of many Austin clients – providing ‘best fit’ IT staffing services and contingent workforce solutions.”
“Austin is a logical expansion for MDI Group as we increase our Texas and regional presence,” said Richey Brownfield, chief executive officer of MDI. “The city’s attractive economic development incentives and rich talent pool continue to attract the world’s biggest brands and high-growth startups. We look forward to helping these companies tackle emerging technology projects and challenging business objectives into the future.”
