Bowstring Advisors (“Bowstring”) served as the exclusive financial advisor to Advantage Resourcing America Inc. (“Advantage”) in its acquisition of Atterro Human Capital Group (“Atterro”). Advantage operates as a subsidiary of Tokyo-based Recruit Holdings (TSE:6098), an international provider of multiple human capital management and information services in Japan, the U.S., the U.K., and Australia.

The combined entity will have over 190 locations in North America.

“The acquisition of Atterro will be an integral step toward the expansion goals of the Advantage Group,” said Toshio Oka, CEO of Advantage Resourcing. Clay Morel, CEO of Atterro Inc., will remain in a key leadership role at Atterro, working alongside Oka. “We felt the culture was right, especially Advantage’s focus on people. Joining the Advantage group will provide Atterro opportunities to expand our client base and our services on a national and global footprint.”
