Adecco to integrate hyphen into Pontoon
Retaining the Pontoon name, the combined company will draw together the experience gained from different markets and diverse cultures to provide a joined up, strengthened offer to clients.
hyphen’s 300 UK employees will join Pontoon’s global workforce operating in 92 countries and territories. Lending impetus to the consolidation and development of new services, analytics, programme management, VMS deployment and configuration support will feature highly on Pontoon’s fresh agenda in the months ahead.
The enlarged Pontoon UK organisation will be led by current hyphen MD Zain Wadee, who will report to Global Pontoon President Michael Wachholz and John Marshall, Regional Head of Adecco UK & Ireland.
Michael Wachholz, global president of Pontoon, said, “This is an exciting moment in the history of our firms, and we are looking forward to taking Adecco Group’s solutions in this sector to the next level. The MSP and RPO market has grown rapidly since the early 2000s and Pontoon is now entering into a fascinating and stimulating phase of activity. We have ambitious plans for the development of our offer and remain committed to continuously exceeding the expectations of our clients.”
Zain Wadee, managing director of hyphen, said, “The integration of hyphen and Pontoon’s business expertise is a fantastic way to start 2016. Pontoon’s unified MSP, RPO and CWS specialisations and new global team structure will provide clients with the expertise, market access and resources needed to take their business to the next level. We are excited to be taking our clients on this journey and look forward to the opportunities ahead.”
