M&A List: 23 IT Staffing Mergers and Acquisitions

Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the IT staffing market remains steady to strong. Although IT staffing business valuations are rarely announced, it's clear that strategic buyers, investors and private equity firms maintain a strong interest in the IT staffing market.

Why's that? Surely, the talent shortage across cybersecurity, multi-cloud services, robotic process automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and other fast-growth areas generated strong demand for IT staffing firms. Here's a sampling of the associated M&A deals that ChannelE2E has covered:
