Vaco, a talent services firm, has purchased Bay State Search, a Boston-based talent acquisition and outsourcing firm. This furthers Vaco’s continuing growth in Northeast markets.

Bay State Search provides consulting, contract and direct hire solutions in accounting and finance, technology and operations.

“We’ve had our eyes on Boston for a long time,” said Brian Waller, CEO and co-founder of Vaco. “Once we met Ryan and the Bay State Search team, we knew we’d found the right partners. Like Vaco, Bay State Search puts people and relationships first, and this is the perfect partnership to bring more value to both clients and candidates in the Boston market.”

“We are excited about growing with the Vaco team and having the enhanced ability to support our clients through Vaco’s global network,” said Ryan Murphy, principal and founder of Bay State Search. “Our culture and values align well, and our team looks forward to joining the Vaco powerhouse to create significant growth opportunities, both internally and externally.”
