San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 04, 2015
San Francisco based RecruitLoop (recruitloop.com) announced today it has acquired Red Bridge (redbridge.co) - the San Francisco based integrated marketing startup behind the Sales Hacker (saleshacker.com) online presence.
The acquisition is the first for RecruitLoop and will see Red Bridge’s 3 cofounders assume key roles within the RecruitLoop team from the beginning of November.
“This is an incredibly exciting move for us”, explains Michael Overell, RecruitLoop Co-founder and CEO. “We first met the Red Bridge team when they were working with one of the top recruiting firms in the Bay Area. They since moved on to build the Sales Hacker brand, and have been supporting key growth functions for us throughout most of this year. We’ve seen tremendous growth, so this was a natural fit.”
“RecruitLoop was one of our very first clients”, says Craig Jordan, Red Bridge Co-founder. “We have always loved working with the recruitment industry disrupter. Up until now we’ve been an extension to the sales and marketing arms of the RecruitLoop team, and now we can truly commit to growing the company to the next level.”
RecruitLoop provides companies with a model of elastic recruiting, delivered through a marketplace of independent recruiters and sourcers who work on-demand. It launched in Australia in late 2011 and set up office in San Francisco in 2013. Today RecruitLoop has recruiters operating across 40 countries servicing businesses in 100 countries.
Red Bridge is an integrated marketing startup that scales B2B SaaS companies. Since launching in late 2014, their philosophy has been that at the core of every revenue-generating startup lies a strong sales and marketing infrastructure.
“We’re excited to have Craig officially coming on board as our new Head of Growth”, says Paul Slezak, RecruitLoop Co-founder and Head of Marketplace. “Alex Burkholder will lead Demand Generation and Andrea Lodigiani will become our first Strategic Account Manager. All 3 roles are absolutely pivotal for our next phase of growth”.
“From day one the Red Bridge team operated as a distributed company across the US. Given that RecruitLoop’s core team is distributed across 5 countries, we’re excited to become part of a truly international startup that shares our values. We look forward to having massive impact together”, says Jordan.
“We have exciting growth plans for 2016”, reinforces Overell. “This acquisition gives us a critical foundation - and a proven team - to deliver on it.”
“We’re also looking forward to officially welcoming Kaia who will join Shasta and Tucker on RecruitLoop’s canine support squad”, concludes Overell.
