Digital talent recruitment agency, Cogs, is gearing up to celebrate its 20th Anniversary and has announced its expansion into the United States. The move means bringing headhunting firm, Industrial Staffing and Co to the group which further extends Cogs’ already extensive talent network, which spans UK, Europe and Asia.

Liam Morgan, co-founder of Cogs, expressed his enthusiasm for this expansion: “Cogs have always had great connections and friendships in the US, thanks to our existing American network. Having experienced partners on the ground will significantly enhance our ability to support and connect with a broader range of clients and talent across the region. It’s especially exciting to make this announcement on the occasion of our 20th Anniversary, underscoring that our hard work, constant innovation, and collaborative team efforts have paved the way for our success.”

Chris Frost, co-founder of Cogs, emphasised the agency’s core principles, saying: “We founded Cogs two decades ago based on the principles of insight, effectiveness, and hard work. These principles have enabled us to continually link forward-thinking companies with a global network of digital talent. Our latest investment in the US exemplifies our commitment to innovation and forward-thinking strategies for the benefit of our clients.”

By uniting with an established team in the ‘land of opportunity,’ Cogs broadens its network, creating the ability to connect companies with talent across three continents. The agency is thrilled to welcome seasoned experts who have achieved success in the industry. Industrial Staffing and Co, based in Colorado and with clients throughout the US, will now serve as Cogs USA.

Dana Moscovici Hunt, one of the co-founders of Industrial Staffing and Co, brings a wealth of experience in recruiting and resource management, with a track record of identifying top candidates for demanding creative agencies. She has collaborated with senior creative leadership to develop recruitment strategies and offer guidance throughout all stages of the hiring process. Dana’s extensive background includes working with renowned creative agencies like AKQA and R/GA, as well as start-ups, giving her unique insights into various workplace cultures and requirements.

Dana Moscovici Hunt commented: “While we’ve worked alongside Liam, Chris, and the Cogs team for nearly 20 years, this new partnership allows us to co-invest, innovate, and offer something unique: new methods for identifying the right talent and a truly international approach to serving clients in the creative industry.”

Stephen Hunt, the other co-founder of Industrial Staffing and Co, brings a rich background in marketing, having worked with leading brands such as Nestle and PwC. His in-depth understanding of client-side dynamics and global client operations makes him an invaluable asset and an accomplished recruiter in areas such as client services, strategy, and the C-suite.

”This expansion is fantastic news for our clients because it allows us to tap into an even broader pool of talent,” said Hunt. “For our candidates, we’re introducing new international opportunities both within agencies and on the brand side.”
