Today, we are proud to announce that the outplacement arm of CareerArc has been acquired by Italy’s largest multinational HR services company, Gi Group, and will be rebranded as INTOO USA.
“We’ve spent the last six years working to pioneer on-demand career coaching for today’s job seekers with an award-winning outplacement platform at CareerArc,” said Robin D. Richards, former CEO of CareerArc. “Our international expansion began when we partnered with Career Star Group in 2019, and we’re thrilled to further expedite our growth by becoming Gi Group’s first US-based INTOO brand.”
Robin D. Richards will serve as chairman of the board of directors for INTOO USA. Yair Riemer, former President of Career Transition Services at CareerArc, is now the CEO of INTOO USA. All other staff members working in CareerArc’s Outplacement department have now transitioned to Intoo USA as part of the acquisition for continuity of service for clients and job seekers.
“Gi Group is an incredibly impressive company in the employment space, and we are thrilled about CareerArc’s outplacement solution being the strategic foundation for launching the group’s INTOO brand in the U.S.,” said Riemer. “With the expanded support and resources made available by Gi Group, we look forward to continuing on our path of innovation and growing our product and service offerings for our clients and job seekers around the world.”
INTOO USA marks Gi Group’s strategic expansion into the U.S., bringing more than 20 years of experience supporting over 20,000 companies in more than 57 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas with outplacement, temporary and permanent staffing, advanced outsourcing, search and selection, training and HR consulting services.
“With the acquisition of CareerArc’s outplacement solution, we are entering the strategic U.S. market for the first time ever,” said Stefano Colli-Lanzi, CEO of Gi Group. “This move is in line with our medium-term development strategy and growth goal, which is to become a $6 billion multinational within the next five years, established among the top five multinationals in Europe and the top 10 globally. The acquisition allows us to strengthen our career transition services, helping people improve their employability in an increasingly dynamic and demanding labor market.”
