After being forced to close his own merchandising service company, Erik Hanvey decided to form a staffing firm, Set and Service Resources, dedicated to providing qualified staff to other merchandising service firms. Since getting its first job order on July 1, 2003, the Raleigh, N.C.- based company under CEO Hanvey’s leadership has become the 23rd-fastest growing staffing firm in 2013, up from No. 43 on the previous year’s list. Set and Service Resources places project managers, sales associates, store managers, event marketers, demonstrators, merchandisers and fixture installers.
