California-based Criteria Corp, a SaaS-based employment analytics platform, recently acquired Australian-based Revelian, the field of emotional intelligence and game-based assessments firm.

The acquisition follows a significant growth investment in Criteria from Sumeru Equity Partners (“SEP”) in 2019 and marks a continued acceleration in global go-to-market and product investment. 

Criteria has administered well over 20 million assessments worldwide. Its comprehensive test portfolio includes pre-employment tests designed by Harvard University psychologists, with validated assessments across multiple dimensions including aptitude, personality, and skills

Revelian is a market leader in psychometric assessment development with a strong history of innovation, most recently demonstrated with game-based assessments for recruitment. Over 500,000 individuals complete Revelian assessments each year, for roles with 2,000+ employers globally. 

“We were drawn to Revelian because strong science is in their DNA, and they have long been the leader in emotional intelligence and game-based assessments,” said Josh Millet, founder, and CEO of Criteria Corp.

“The addition of Revelian aligns with our mission of offering the most comprehensive and multidimensional assessment portfolio on the market today. While we are very pleased to bring innovative assessments to our customer base, what’s really exciting is the opportunity to combine forces and accelerate assessment development and innovation,” added Millet.

“This is such an exciting next chapter for Revelian,” said Cherie Curtis, CEO of Revelian. “Our new relationship with Criteria extends the global reach of our unique game-based assessments and extends the product range available to our clients. The natural synergy of our cultures and talents provides an exciting opportunity for future growth and innovation.”

Kevin Cheng, Vice President at SEP and Board Director at Criteria Corp. "We are thrilled to partner with and support the strategic combination of Criteria and Revelian, which empowers our current and future customers with unparalleled product breadth and award-winning customer service on a global scale."

Criteria will continue to operate Revelian offices, expanding its international presence. The new combined company will have over 4,500 clients in over 60 countries worldwide.
