PRO Unlimited Acquires Brainnet Group


We’re pleased to announce the continued expansion of our global footprint in EMEA with the acquisition of Brainnet Group. For the past 24 years, Brainnet Group has been the leading purely vendor-neutral Managed Services Provider (MSP) in the Netherlands, providing companies with significant cost savings, process optimization and high-quality talent across their contingent workforce management programs. We currently have a strong foothold in EMEA, and Brainnet Group will only help broaden our reach with its blue-chip client base and outstanding brand recognition throughout the region.

The acquisition increases the ability to service our international clients while also delivering additional solutions to Brainnet’s clients such as third-party payroll and market rate intelligence. This latest move supports our continued investment in our contingent workforce management platform along with offering the industry’s most trusted services the Global 2000 requires to win the battle for talent. Brainnet Group’s existing contingent labor solutions will be folded into the umbrella of software and services we presently offer to organizations across EMEA and beyond.

Here’s what our CEO Kevin Akeroyd had to say about the acquisition:

"Brainnet Group has demonstrated for over two decades that it is the MSP leader in the Netherlands, which further reinforces that its purely vendor-neutral model is the preferred approach to managing the highly skilled, professional non-employee workforce. This acquisition not only continues to strengthen our established presence in EMEA, but it also allows us to provide additional services and support to our global client base. Lastly, it enables us to showcase the industry's most comprehensive contingent workforce management platform and consultative services to companies that need to easily scale and adapt to a fast-growing market.”

Some of the world’s largest companies rely on Brainnet Group’s services to strategically and operationally outsource their non-employee workforce segments. The acquisition expands our ability to modernize mission-critical non-employee workforce programs worldwide, which have now become a top four spend category. It also marks the latest step in our plans to deliver outstanding services and technological innovations that empower clients to better identify, source and manage talent on a global basis as part of their human capital strategies.
