ZRG Acquires Hub Recruiting
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ZRG Acquires Hub Recruiting, A Tech Enabled RPO Provider
NEW YORK, NY, and ROCHELLE PARK, NJ, December 6, 2022 — ZRG, a rapidly growing global talent
advisory firm, today announced their acquisition of Hub Recruiting, LLC. a leading, boutique RPO (Recruiting
Process Outsourcing) firm.
Based out of Bedford, MA, Hub Recruiting is a leading RPO that partners with growing technology
companies by providing embedded recruiters and/or entire recruiting teams for hiring challenges that
range from one hire to entire, organizational buildouts. Hub’s approach combines exceptional recruiters and
sourcers, ongoing training and coaching, and integrated tools including data analytics – called Full Stack
RPO. Their key focus areas include technology driven companies who are building their technology,
revenue, and corporate functions, nationally and internationally.
“Increasingly, our clients have asked for support for volume hiring in complex sales, engineering, and
technical roles, but we did not have that capability,” says Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG. “Hub adds that
capability, enabling us to support recruiting for project-based, volume hiring of more senior roles globally.”
“We believe when a company aligns strategy and culture with the right talent, amazing success can be
achieved, and our offerings now address these core areas,” Hartmann continued. “We constantly strive to
improve ourselves in order to improve client outcomes.”
Matt Corbett, Founder and CEO of Hub Recruiting, said: “ZRG’s commitment to their clients’ end-to-end
needs, diversity and their innovative approach to data analytics are an immediate fit with Hub’s own values
and action-oriented nature. Our RPO expertise added to ZRG’s established suite of talent advisory services
is going to be a great benefit for all of our clients.“
Prior to the Hub Recruiting acquisition, ZRG has actively diversified their talent management offerings. The
company recently acquired top culture consulting firm Walking The Talk, as well as entertainment industry
search and consulting firm Sucherman Group and SEBA International, a retained executive search firm
focused on finance, risk, marketing, and revenue roles. ZRG’s organic growth continues across the UK,
EU, and Middle East in retained search, on-demand talent solutions, and consulting.
G2 Capital Advisors served as exclusive buy-side advisor to ZRG Partners on the successful transaction.
ZRG is a global talent advisory firm that is changing the way companies hire and manage talent. ZRG’s data-
driven approach to executive and professional search has been changing the way clients think about how
to find top talent. The company’s digital Zi platform combines talent intelligence, candidate insights, and
process improvement to dramatically deliver executive searches quicker and with proven better results.
Today, with the help of private equity investor RFE Investment Partners, ZRG is among the fastest growing
firms in the search industry and provides a full suite of retained search, on-demand talent, and consulting
and advisory solutions across the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Australia.
