LOS ANGELES/ANNAPOLIS - Annapolis-based Predictive Index Certified Partner, PI Midlantic, added Los Angeles to its territories, recently, bringing over 30 years of behavioral assessment experience to the Golden Coast.
The addition of Los Angeles will bring the number of states PI Midlantic serves to a total of seven, adding to Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.
The addition of Los Angeles to PI Midlantic’s territories came with the acquisition of PI Management Associates, Inc. Doug Johnson, Principal of the Huntington Beach, CA-based Certified Partnership, sold it to Steve Picarde, Sr. after announcing that he was retiring near the end of 2015.
“Doug and I go way back. I’ve always admired what he did with the PI in California and when he told me he was retiring I didn't hesitate to make him an offer,” says Steve Picarde, Sr.
PI Management Associates, Inc. opened its doors in 2006. After 10 successful years of business, the Certified Partner will continue serving current and new clients through PI Midlantic. Senior Consultant, Wayne Holder has also joined PI Midlantic in the acquisition.
“We are excited to have Wayne on board. He is a talented consultant and by living in California, he allows us to have a full-time presence in the Los Angeles area,” says Picarde.
The addition of the Los Angeles territory works into PI Midlantic’s expansion plan, helping the Certified Partner take another step towards achieving its goal of doubling its size by 2031.
