Business-focused human cloud platform for on-demand consulting, experts, and execs, Business Talent Group, has recently announced the acquisition of online UK talent marketplace, Hillgate. This merge will grow BTG's international brand into Europe.

“BTG was already one of the leading platforms for on-demand consultants and high-end talent, and this acquisition, along with the recent strategic investments the firm has taken on, should help solidify their position in the market,” said Staffing Industry Analysts Research Manager David Francis. “Our own estimates project that demand for high-end, on-demand consulting work is growing, and so being able to expand their international footprint whilst absorbing a competitor seems like a logical and sound strategy.”

The transaction closed Feb. 11; terms were not disclosed. Hillgate Founder and CEO Andrew Lecocq will join Business Talent Group as head of Europe, the Middle East and Africa and lead BTG Europe’s London-based team.
