The combined organization has more than 44,000 employees serving over 200 clients across 71 countries.  This acquisition significantly extends the current global RPO leadership position of the PeopleScout division. 

Seaton recently announced 30% organic revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2013 driven by growth in every service offering and the largest new client win year in the company's history.

"The combination of our PeopleScout division and HRX will bring tangible benefits to RPO clients in the form of enhanced sourcing technology, expanded service offerings, and additional global reach," commented Patrick Beharelle, Seaton CEO.  "This is the first acquisition Seaton has made in the 25 years we've been in business.  We've looked at dozens of acquisitions over our history and firmly believe that HRX represents the best strategic opportunity for Seaton, its employees and its clients."

"Joining the Seaton family of companies is a perfect fit for HRX in terms of culture, access to additional service offerings, and geographic expansion," said Jane Hussey, HRX Managing Director.  "Both firms have a reputation for exceptional service delivery and industry leading client satisfaction rates."

After the acquisition, Taryn Owen, divisional President of PeopleScout, and Jane Hussey will directly report to Patrick Beharelle and the divisions will closely collaborate on global RPO opportunities.
