PeopleShare, one of the largest staffing firms on the East Coast, has recently announced the acquisition of Reliance Staffing, based in Richmond, Virginia, effective April 9, 2019.
David Donald, CEO of PeopleShare, stated, "We are pleased to have Reliance Staffing become part of the PeopleShare family. With five offices in Virginia, this is the perfect next step in our East Coast expansion. The complementary expertise and knowledge from the Reliance team is a massive benefit to us and helps us expand more quickly than opening new offices in the region."
Tom Sarach, President of Reliance Staffing, added, "Today we are proud to join the PeopleShare team and combine our collective forty years of staffing experience. We view this as an opportunity to reach more customers and create even more opportunity for our employees."
Founded in 1982, Reliance Staffing, now a PeopleShare company, has five offices in the Virginia area including Richmond, Chesapeake, Newport News, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach. Reliance is one of the largest personnel firms in the Hampton Roads area, employing thousands of employees each year. As the acquisition takes place, Reliance Staffing will continue to operate under the same name.
