Valintry acquires recruitment and staffing assets of PaperBoat Media, LLC
PaperBoat Media is an upstart in the IT recruiting and consulting industry. The acquisition, completed in early August for an undisclosed sum, enables Valintry to expand the breadth and value of services it provides, adding superb talent and business processes to an already successful team.
"PaperBoat Media has built strong relationships with multiple clients and has positioned themselves as an expert not only in traditional IT consulting, but also understanding and recruiting talent to support, Big Data, ERP and marketing IT. (marketing IT is the convergence point where digital and marketing technical skills overlap). These unique skills, combined with our common values in how we build client/partner relationships made this an easy decision. PaperBoat uses technology and their expertise in digital marketing to find the most difficult to source talent resources. This acquisition accelerates our goal of becoming the company of choice for clients wishing to work with a partner to help fulfil their IT consulting and IT staffing needs," said Valintry president Joe Parris.
In completing the acquisition, Valintry is fulfilling a portion of its national growth strategy that will allow the firm to provide solutions that specifically meet the needs of existing and new clients. At the same time, the acquisition will make it possible for PaperBoat Media, which will continue to be independently branded, to go back to its roots as a digital marketing agency and serve clients in that capacity.
"Valintry is a company built on a strong foundation, enabling a national growth plan supported by strong values-driven leadership. With such similar cultures, values and a commitment to use technology to support the core business, we knew combining our resources was a great opportunity and the right decision for the company," said PaperBoat Media CEO, Robert Urban.
Parris added, "We are excited about the opportunities that our staffing and consulting partnership with PaperBoat Media brings to Valintry. The addition of Timmy Rupeiks (of PaperBoat) as senior VP of sales is another important milestone in the Valintry national growth plan that will bring our firm to entirely new levels of success. Timmy's vast network of IT executives, developed over more than a decade in Florida, will support Valintry's growing business throughout the Southeastern US. In addition, Robert Urban, a pioneer and proven talent in marketing IT, has agreed to support the acquisition as a consultant focusing on sales growth and new product innovation."
The digital marketing departments of both organizations will collaborate under this new agreement, further enhancing the search engine marketing services available to both companies' clients.
