St. Louis staffing firms merge to form Keystone Staffing and Talent Solutions


Two St. Louis staffing firms merged at the end of 2020 to form a $10 million firm. Staffing Solutions Inc. and Keystone Partnership have merged to form Keystone Staffing and Talent Solutions. Pat Queensen, former president of Keystone, will lead the combined company as CEO. Bonny Filandrinos, who led Staffing Solutions, will serve as VP and principal.

Filandrinos said the merger will make both firms stronger.

“We just have a more robust entity and it just gives us an opportunity to serve our applicants and client base in a greater way,” she said.

Filandrinos said the deal wasn’t an acquisition but a merger of two firms, allowing them to operate together.

The combined firm provides clerical support, or office clerical staffing, as well professional staffing in human resources, finance/accounting, supply chain and marketing. It also provides events staffing at concert venues, St. Louis University and other sites.
