International workforce solutions specialist mselect has announced the acquisition of FIFE, an established UAE-based agency specialising in the Defence, Space, and Security sectors. This strategic move aims to scale mselect’s service offering and expand its footprint across the Middle East.

FIFE, founded by Henry Le May, brings an enviable client portfolio comprising international Defence, Space, and Security corporations. The acquisition of FIFE adds depth to mselect’s industry coverage and strategically positions the workforce solutions specialist as a one of the fastest growing in the middle east.

Hal Miran, CEO of mselect, expressed his delight on the acquisition, stating: “This move is part of our strategy to expand our service offerings and enter major new sectors. It’s an exciting moment for us as we close our second acquisition and take a fundamental step in our growth trajectory towards becoming a leading provider of workforce solutions in the region.”

The acquisition is expected to create a solid international market proposition that appeals to current clients of FIFE by combining FIFE’s specialist sector operations with mselect’s array of staffing services. The added dimension to mselect’s growth and development plans further solidifies the company’s international position, ensuring a seamless transition and continued high-quality service for FIFE’s clients.

mselect will provide FIFE with extensive support infrastructure and resources, benefiting its existing client base with additional workforce services. The current FIFE team will join mselect’s recruitment side of the business, bringing their expertise and experience to enhance mselect’s service offerings further. Henry Le May will now lead mselect’s contract and permanent recruitment business.

In a statement, Henry Le May said, “As the founder of FIFE, I am delighted to announce our recent acquisition by mselect. This is a remarkable opportunity for us to expand our service offerings and capabilities to clients in our core markets and beyond.

I’d like to thank our staff for realising the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication. I am personally looking forward to learning and growing with the exceptional team at mselect who not only share our core values and ethics but also see the opportunity internationally to provide a truly exceptional service in both permanent and outsourced recruitment.

Together, we will continue to drive success and innovation not only in the Defence, Space, and Security sector but across all mselect’s verticals and regions.”
