June 24, 2015, 5:45pm Central Daylight Time
Katy, TX - Cotton Holdings, Inc. (the "Company"), today announced it has acquired the team at CGI Staffing Solutions, Inc. ("CGI"), a boutique firm specializing in professional level recruiting and human resources services based in Lake Charles, Louisiana. In addition to bringing on the employees of CGI to operate the Company's newest venture, OneTeam--a staffing and human resources solutions business-- the Company also agreed to assume certain of CGI's outstanding staffing and professional recruiting services contracts. The CGI team is led by Wendy Mann-Harper, the CGI founder and CEO.
"With the establishment of OneTeam, we are able to offer a unique set of services to our clients. We are now a one-stop shop for all their infrastructure support and personnel-related needs," said Bryan Michalsky, Chief Financial Officer. In addition to the suite of professional services OneTeam will provide to new and existing clients, they will also play an integral role in staff placement for other divisions of the Company that specialize in disaster recovery, temporary housing and food services. The newly formed OneTeam successfully demonstrated their capabilities and effectiveness in quick response scenarios when they jumped into action to assist the Company with a ramp up of labor for a national project earlier this month.
Pete Bell, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said, "we are extremely excited to announce that Cotton Holdings has expanded into a new line of business--staffing and recruiting services--and we are even more excited to welcome Wendy and her CGI team to the Cotton family as the foundation of that new business."
"Given their great vision, my team and I have decided to join forces with Cotton, and we look forward to helping build OneTeam into a thriving business that solves staffing and other human resources challenges for our clients, in the Lake Charles area where CGI was based and elsewhere," said Wendy Mann Harper. The CGI team has joined Cotton's OneTeam effective immediately.
