Vaco today announced that it acquired Bay State Search, a Boston-based national talent acquisition and outsourcing firm. The deal gives Vaco a foothold into the Boston market and complements its Northeast growth, following the launch of its technology and staffing divisions in the tri-state area last year.

Bay State Search, founded in 2013, serves the accounting and finance, banking and financial services, information technology, customer service, legal work and administration sectors. The transaction closed Oct. 29; terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Bay State Search will transition to the Vaco brand in 2022, and its executives will remain with the company.

Vaco, a national staffing provider based in Nashville, Tennessee, said it has been looking at Boston for a long time.

“Once we met [Ryan Murphy, principal and founder of Bay State Search] and the Bay State Search team, we knew we’d found the right partners,” said Brian Waller, CEO and co-founder of Vaco. “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.”

The deal follows Vaco’s acquisition earlier this year of Alluvion, a Jacksonville, Florida-based staffing firm.
