Razzbri merges with Adcorp Professional Services!

Leading New Zealand based digital talent specialist Razzbri has launched in Australia, following an exciting year of unprecedented growth. Specialising in Front-end Development, Sales, Media, Marketing, Data and E-commerce, Razzbri is set to take the Australian market by storm, working closely with its Australian sister company Paxus (leading technology talent specialists) to replicate the success of the New Zealand business.

The brand’s expansion comes after its recent acquisition in late 2017 by global workforce solutions provider Adcorp. Adcorp’s Chief Operations Officer, Mark Jurgens, relocated to Australia from South Africa in early 2017 to focus on the group’s expansion into the region.

Mark said “the acquisition of Razzbri and the launch of the brand in Australia forms a key part of our investment strategy across Australia and NZ. The acquisition of Paxus in 2014 provided us with strong market coverage across technology talent, which we will see extend to the digital market following the launch of our new digital brand.”

Founder of Razzbri, Trudi Batson, who has now taken on a Managing Executive role, expressed how far the brand had come “when I started Razzbri over 9 years ago, it was a small start-up with only a handful of employees. Since then, we have grown exponentially to become a well-known brand in the New Zealand market, and one of the leaders in the digital space. The attraction to Adcorp was the opportunity to work with their highly experienced management team to expand our footprint into Australia and South Africa, replicating the success we have had in New Zealand.”

Razzbri will form part of Adcorp’s Adcorp Professional Services (APS) division, which consists of nine individually branded companies that operate in the Southern Hemisphere, predominantly throughout Australia and South Africa.

In Australia, the APS portfolio of companies includes leading technology talent specialist Paxus, MSP/RPO provider talentCRU, project management and technologies brands allAboutXpert and allAboutXpert Technologies, IT training specialists Torque IT, and most recently leading digital talent specialist Razzbri.

With a focus currently on establishing Razzbri’s Sydney and Melbourne offices, further plans are already in play to open offices in Wellington and Christchurch later this year.
