Hudson Global expands tech offering with Coit Group acquisition
International US talent solutions company Hudson Global is expanding its presence in the technology sector with the acquisition of San Francisco-based RPO provider Coit Group.
Founded 20 years ago by Joe Belluomini and Tim Farrelly, Coit is an RPO provider specialising in procuring top talent for high-growth companies, predominately in the San Francisco Bay Area.
With this acquisition, Hudson Global, which operates as Hudson RPO, establishes an office in San Francisco convenient to Silicon Valley. In addition, Joe Belluomini and Tim Farrelly will become co-CEOs of Hudson RPO’s newly-formed Technology Group, which will operate jointly with Hudson RPO’s existing teams in the Americas, Asia Pacific, and EMEA regions to grow the company’s service offering to technology clients. The Technology Group will also provide continuous access to knowledge regarding new and emerging technologies in the RPO, MSP, and Total Talent Solutions space.
“Our RPO model was significantly influenced by Hudson RPO, which makes this combination a natural fit. We are very excited about Hudson RPO’s strong reputation and global reach, as well as what we can do together for our clients,” says Belluomini, CEO of Coit.
“We believe our long history of providing excellent service to companies in the Bay Area combined with Hudson RPO’s global market position creates an exciting growth opportunity to meet the global talent needs of our clients,” says Farrelly, Coit president.
Hudson RPO CEO Jeff Eberwein says the addition of Coit significantly expands the group’s presence in the technology sector and on the US West Coast. “Hudson RPO now has an office in the San Francisco/Silicon Valley region staffed with a talented team which, combined with Hudson RPO’s global delivery capability, positions us well to serve the global growth ambitions of companies located in this thriving region,” he says.
