December 17 2013

Onward Search, a staffing agency for digital marketing, creative and technology talent, acquired Match Creative Talent, a Los Angeles-based staffing agency specializing in creative, marketing and business-support professionals in the advertising, marketing, entertainment, corporate, and design industries.

The transaction closed Dec. 13 and terms were not disclosed.

The Match Creative Talent brand will remain in place and operate as Match Creative Talent – An Onward Search Company. The Match Creative Talent recruitment and staffing team will remain in place; President Sydney Slosson remains in charge of the office and assumes the title of vice-president of Southern California for Onward Search.

Match Creative’s one office, located in Los Angeles, has been in place for 11 years and works with entertainment and production companies in Hollywood, as well as Fortune 500 companies and digital agencies in Los Angeles. Match Creative Talent is Onward Search’s 13th office.

Onward Search’s parent company is holding company OGH LLC, whose principal shareholder is New York-based private equity firm Welsh, Carson, Anderson and Stowe.

“Uniting these two brands will create one of the largest and most experienced recruitment teams on the West Coast and strengthen the opportunities available to the area’s digital marketing and creative talent,” said Kevin Clark, CEO and co-founder of OGH.
