Irvine, CA – KORE1, a leading provider of IT, creative, and engineering staffing solutions nationwide, has announced the acquisition of native Denver IT staffing firm Kranect. The CEO & Founder of Kranect, Rolf Kramer, will transition into the role of Managing Partner for this new Colorado branch of KORE1.

“Kranect is the pinnacle of IT staffing in Denver,” said Steve Quarles, Senior Partner of KORE1. “I’ve long admired the ability of Rolf’s team to effectively connect area businesses with the right tech talent, and I’m happy to bring that localized expertise under the roof of KORE1.”

Founded in the summer of 2012, Kranect was in operation for over five years prior to KORE1’s acquisition. While growing into Denver’s premier IT staffing firm, Kranect built a strong brand that boasted 67% of placements being referrals. This was due in large part to Colorado native Rolf Kramer’s knowledge of the region’s IT community as well as his 25 years of sales experience, with 20 years in the staffing industry.

“This acquisition represents an exciting new era for the Denver tech industry,” commented Kramer. “By combining KORE1’s innovative delivery model with Kranect’s market knowledge and vast network, our clients and candidates will enjoy even better levels of service than before. As 2018 gets underway, there’s no doubt in my mind that our supportive ‘Friends of Kranect’ will quickly become ‘Friends of KORE1.’ ”

To celebrate this venture, the new KORE1 Denver branch will host a launch party on the evening of January 18th. Held in lieu of Kranect’s annual holiday open house, the party will feature live music with an open mic format that allows talented clients and candidates to perform in a fun environment. Food and drinks will be provided.

“The synergy created by Kranect combining with KORE1 will provide unrivaled value to businesses and tech talent in the region,” said Brian Hunt, Senior Partner of KORE1. “Denver is home to an exciting IT community, and we are thrilled to invest in it and help it grow further.”
