Salt Recruitment Group acquires APAC-based Xpand
Salt has acquired APAC-based specialist digital, tech, media and sales firm Xpand in order to further increase its global talent services. This move will add to the firm’s existing 200+ headcount across eight countries.
This latest news is the first of many moves for the company, with further expansion plans in the pipeline, including additional acquisitions, substantial hires, new offices and continued investment in top-of-the-range technology.
Paul Schiavo, executive chairman at Salt, commented, “This is an exciting new chapter for Salt as we continue our journey to be the best global digital recruiter. There’s an international shortage of talent in this arena that means employers need worldwide support to attract the best digital skills. Investments such as this ensure we have the talented recruiters we need based around the globe to best support our clients, candidates and contractors.
“Adding the knowledge from Xpand’s Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Singapore bases to our own expertise will further ensure we’re driving truly global talent strategies for our clients. I’d like to personally welcome our new employees to the Salt family – we’re all looking forward to having them join our vision to create futures for our customers globally that will positively impact the digital economy.”
