<p><strong>San Diego &mdash; July 16</strong><br />TalentFuse, an IT recruiting and staffing company, has announced that SQL Star, an IT services and technology institution that serves both private and government sectors, has acquired the company.&nbsp; </p><p>The new company will be one of the largest IT staffing and project development firms in the country.&nbsp; </p><p>The acquisition directly addresses industry concern over shortages in qualified IT workers by providing an inexhaustible supply of on-shore talent, leveraging SQL Star&rsquo;s worldwide learning institutions that aim to certify more than 100,000 IT professionals over the next 24 months. <br /><br />TalentFuse, headquartered in Clairemont, Calif., will acquire a new 4,000-square-foot development center in San Diego, as well as additional IT staffing and development centers that will serve more than 300 clients nationwide and several major regions in the United States, including New Jersey and Portland, Ore.&nbsp; </p><p>In addition to staffing services, these centers give existing and future customers an on-shore option of outsourcing large IT projects to TalentFuse, which will incubate talent through SQL Star&rsquo;s learning programs, importing qualified professionals to the United States as needed.<br /><br />&ldquo;SQL Star&rsquo;s services and IT resources will compliment our staffing services greatly,&rdquo; Brian Margarita, TalentFuse president, said. &ldquo;The acquisition gives Talent Fuse a tremendous competitive advantage by providing clients the options of having a steady flow of top IT personnel for projects or developing and managing entire projects in-house.&rdquo;<br /><br />SQL Star is an IT services and development company with 13 offices in India and wholly owned subsidiaries in Australia, Singapore and the United States. </p><p>The company&rsquo;s STARVANTAGE learning institution is recognized as a leader in IT certification, and it is partnered with organizations such as Red Hat, Sun and Oracle, among others.&nbsp; </p><p>To date, STARVANTAGE has certified more than 120,000 Oracle professionals, making it one of the largest Oracle training affiliates in the world.<br /><br />TalentFuse (with customers such as Qualcomm, Intuit, Gateway and Invitrogen) assists companies in all industries with choosing the right candidates for IT positions that range from network administrator up to chief technology officer. </p><p>Unlike traditional staffing firms, whose placements maintain a contractor level status with minimal benefits, all TalentFuse placements are given the option of W-2 employment with full benefits including health, dental, vision, 401(k) match, chiropractic, life insurance and flexible spending programs. </p><p>And with the addition of IT development centers, TalentFuse placements now enjoy a continuous and diverse flow of project work opportunities, helping to strengthen existing skills or develop their portfolio through new experiences.<br /><br />&quot;We are excited at the opportunity to merge with TalentFuse,&rdquo; said Raj Ganti, SQL Star CEO. &ldquo;This deal is significant because it has given us the ability to create our own channel within the IT industry for importing H1-B employees, a critical requirement for most large customers who elect to outsource. TalentFuse has truly become a panacea for all IT staffing and project development needs.&rdquo;<br /><br />SQL Star will retain the TalentFuse name, leveraging its well-established brand while bolstering the company roster to more than 100 employees and tripling revenues. </p>
