About Us


Our Story

Addison International is a multifaceted Executive Recruitment Firm based in Redondo Beach, CA.

 Addison International Consulting LLC was founded in May 2018 by Co-Founders Tom Nash and Jim McNeal.

The name Addison has been in the Nash family since the 1850s, and has carried tremendous weight through the generations. Within Tom’s family, Addisons have done everything from being a railroad conductor, an All-American collegiate football player, a National Championship winning collegiate winning football coach, a Harvard graduate, and the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from a major corporation.

In choosing the name Addison, we are demonstrating that we stand behind the work that is done at Addison International with the same drive for excellence previous generations of Addisons have achieved. 

The newest Addison, Vincent Addison Nash, was born the same month as Addison International was founded, May 2018. The tradition of excellence carries on.
