Coopers Group AG ("Coopers"), a leading Swiss recruiting agency in professional and executive search, proudly announces the successful acquisition of iET Group, which is based in Zurich. This strategic acquisition emphasizes Coopers' commitment to expand their service portfolio and to further strengthen their presence in the Swiss market.
This merger expands both, the talent pool as well as the sourcing capacities, enabling us to support all clients even better in their recruitment processes. The long-standing expertise and local roots of the iET Group make it possible to address the specific needs of the Zurich job market with a more targeted approach. As owner-managed Swiss companies, Coopers and iET are the ideal partners, operating with joint values. They share the vision to understand specific needs of Swiss clients and candidates more precisely and thus to grow hand in hand with them.
Executive management of both companies are confident about this decision and are looking forward to a joint future. The previous owner and Managing Director of the iET Group, Christian Staubli, is stepping down from his positions - but will remain as an advisor and companion to Coopers. Commenting on this new development, Christian Staubli stated: " After more than 30 successful years in business, I have decided to retire from the operational side of the business. I am very pleased to have found a partner in Coopers who will sustainably run the companies I founded as I have envisioned it."
Christian Biedermann, Managing Director of Coopers, explains: "This acquisition is an important step in our growth strategy and a milestone in our Coopers history. We are convinced that our joint efforts will generate an even higher added value for all our clients and candidates. We warmly welcome the employees of iET Group to the Coopers family and look forward to setting new standards in the industry together."
Coopers integrates employees of the iET Group seamlessly to ensure a smooth transition and continued support for all clients and candidates. We look forward to the new future with excitement and, like Coopers, are convinced that this strategic alliance will create groundbreaking opportunities and value for all stakeholders.
