ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bradley-Morris, Inc. (BMI), the largest military-focused recruiting firm in the U.S., announced today that it has acquired Loveland, Ohio-based RecruitMilitary. The combined entity will be the largest military recruiting company in the U.S., offering employers access to more than 1,000,000 military job seekers via services that include contingency recruiting, military job fairs, employer branding, a military-based publication and more.

“This acquisition combines the two leaders in the veteran hiring space,” said Tim Best, CEO, Bradley-Morris, Inc. “Now, when employers need to hire military, they will have a one-stop shop whether their requirements are to launch a military hiring program, fill specific job openings, brand themselves as a military-friendly company or source talent via military job fairs and a military job board.”
Founded in 1998, RecruitMilitary (RM; www.RecruitMilitary.com) is the top producer of military-to-civilian job fairs, with 107 events nationwide in 2016.
