Allegis Group Acquires The Stamford Group, a Switzerland-based Staffing, Recruiting, and Services Organisation


Purchase by industry-leading talent solutions provider supports global growth strategy

The Allegis Group, the global leader in talent solutions, has intensified its ability to serve new and existing customers in Europe with the acquisition of The Stamford Group. This Switzerland-based staffing, recruiting and services organisation joins the Allegis Group’s global network of companies that optimise talent attraction and retention while providing individuals with opportunities to realise their professional aspirations and achieve personal success.

Founded in 2001, The Stamford Group offers a full range of sourcing solutions that help customers build internal teams, whether that requires a full project team, on-site contractors, or permanent hires. The company will continue to operate from its Basel, Zürich, and Nyon offices under its existing leadership.

“The Stamford Group is an innovative, proven performer in the information technology and life sciences space that shares the Allegis Group’s strong passion for building long-term relationships,” said Sean Zimdahl, president of the Allegis Group EMEA. “Combined with how well they match our core values and strategic direction with the wealth of knowledge and leadership they bring to the table, we’re confident in our collective ability to deliver new, creative opportunities for clients and candidates across EMEA.”

The Stamford Group delivers solutions under two brands: Stamford Consultants specialises in recruiting business and technology experts within the financial services, life science, and engineering sectors while Talentis Solutions supports companies in applying effective project management in order to achieve their business objectives.

“The future is exciting,” said Jenny Johnston, founder and managing director for The Stamford Group. “We have earned the distinction of being a preferred supplier for the most respected and recognised companies, and I’m excited to work with the Allegis Group’s global network to develop our people while scaling our service and geographical capabilities. With this added expertise, scale, and breadth of services, the Allegis Group is the perfect partner to help us continue to be our customer’s first-choice partner and improve people’s lives.”
