Houston-based executive search firm recognized by the Houston West Chamber of Commerce at its 12th Annual Economic Development Summit

HOUSTON (February 23, 2010) – ABACO International, a retained executive search firm headquartered in Houston, Texas, was recognized on Friday for its significant contributions to a critical part of Houston’s business community. The firm, which helped to create more than $350,000 worth of business in West Houston’s energy corridor, was recognized with a Star Award at the Houston West Chamber of Commerce’s 12th Annual Economic Development Summit.  

The Star Awards, which received 167 nominations, recognized the top companies currently making constructive influences in the community and bringing employees and positive economic shifts to West Houston – making the area an exemplary place to live, work and invest.  

“At ABACO International, we are honored to receive such a prestigious award within the thriving and busy Houston energy corridor,” said Marie Gulliot, president and CEO of ABACO International. “We are confident that our process brings the very best talent into key leadership positions, and we are proud to be recognized as a positive contributor to Houston’s economy.” 

Throughout the 2009 economic recession, ABACO International not only persisted, but grew substantially while helping guide the community out of financial danger and back into profitability, by ensuring West Houston’s businesses recruited and retained the best possible management and leadership. ABACO International also worked with many professionals and executives in transition, boosting the morale in the community by helping many individuals re-assess their skills and re-enter the workforce with confidence.  

Additionally, ABACO International participated as an active member of the business community, promoting and advancing West Houston’s businesses through the firm’s in-depth involvement with numerous state and local organizations, including the Society of Petroleum Engineers, Silver Fox Advisors and the Womens’ Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA.). The firm leveraged these relationships to place top-notch talent into Houston’s businesses. 

Held at the Omni West Hotel in Houston, Texas, the Star Awards and Economic Business Development Summit hosted the most successful and community-involved leaders of West Houston’s business community.
