Valtas Group recently announced the acquisition of SQR2 effective January 16, 2020. The combined firms will operate under the Valtas Group name.
The combined company, headquartered in Bellevue, WA is a firm with over 20 professionals in the Pacific NW. Thomas Varga, a Founder and Managing Partner at Valtas Group will lead the integration of the two firms.
"We've respected SQR2 as a quality professional services firm in the Puget Sound Business Community and its founder Ed Rogan for many years,” said Thomas Varga. “We are excited to join forces and take full advantage of their deep expertise in executive search and recruitment.”
"This combination really is a wonderful fit. Rarely are you able to find another firm that so deeply shares similar philosophies in terms of serving clients, valuing associates, and participating in the community through corporate philanthropy. Our stakeholders are going to benefit tremendously from this acquisition,” commented Ed Rogan President and Founder of SQR2. “We learned right from the start that there were common core values as well as a consistent culture which underlies our success, and it quickly became evident that by combining the talents and skills of our teams we could deliver an even greater level of service to our clients.”
The combined entity will operate in Washington and provide advisory, interim ED and search services to nonprofits and similar social purpose organizations. This acquisition provides additional capacity for the firm’s executive search practice and exceptional experience in serving the social sector with the highest quality services.
For two decades Ed Rogan, founder of SQR2, has provided retained executive recruiting services, career counseling, MBTI administration and interpretation, coaching, compensation consulting, employee satisfaction surveys, and HR consulting services.
About Valtas Group
The Valtas Group was started in 2018 by joining together the knowledge and experience of three distinct but related organizations with a nonprofit lens. The combination of HR Strategies, an interim executive and nonprofit search firm with an 18-year track record serving social enterprises; CFO Selections, a financial consulting and search firm founded in 2002 with both a nonprofit and deep philanthropic passion; and Mentor Coaching a nonprofit focused, business capacity enhancement firm. These entities came together to form what is now the nucleus of Valtas Group.
