KORE1 is excited to announce the acquisition of Technical Connections, Inc. (TCI), a premier, Los Angeles-based recruiting firm with expertise in the IT and software development industries. This acquisition significantly expands KORE1’s presence in Southern California, allowing the firm to attract top talent and to best serve a fast-growing roster of clients.

The move to acquire TCI started with conversations between Scott MacKinnon, CEO of TCI, and Steve Quarles, CEO of KORE1, who instantly bonded based on their shared commitment to service and integrity.  “At the center of this partnership is our desire to provide a greater experience and add value to our relationships with employees, candidates, clients, and the community,” said Quarles. “At the same time, we will be able to offer candidates greater exposure given TCI’s established leadership in the Greater Los Angeles market.”

KORE1’s unique delivery model and cutting edge technology on the backend will be a tremendous asset to TCI’s top-tier clients not only in the start-up/Silicon Beach space, but also in banking, finance, healthcare, entertainment,and real estate. “With the sheer recruiting firepower of KORE1, our candidates and clients can expect an incredible level of service,” echoed MacKinnon.

The acquisition of TCI perfectly fits into KORE1’s goal to expand and serve the increased demand for IT talent in the current market and to bring the KORE1 experience to Los Angeles. This acquisition will allow KORE1 to accomplish exactly that with clients already established in Southern California.

Technical Connections has served the Los Angeles area successfully for almost 40 years.“The synergies created through this relationship will complement our service goals on the West Coast,” said Tom Kenaley, Senior Partner and CRO.

For job seekers, KORE1’s acquisition of TCI has increased its offerings in terms of opportunities, projects, and jobs, adding more chances to get in front of new, high-quality clients. For our clients, we now have a deeper network of impressive talent from which to source candidates.

“We are ecstatic to have Technical Connections join the KORE1 family! Their long history of deep client relationships and focus on contract technology staff augmentation made this an amazing fit for us.  We are thankful to have such a respected brand help us to open up the Los Angeles market,” added Devin Hornick, Co-Founder and Partner of KORE1.
