IT and business services firm Gibbs Hybrid has been acquired by New York-headquartered Atrium, a leading extended workforce management and talent solutions company.

Gibbs Hybrid is Europe’s largest certified minority woman-owned business and works across the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa and the US.

Farida Gibbs, founder and CEO, of Gibbs Hybrid, said: “When we first began discussions with Atrium, the strong corresponding values shared by our two companies quickly became apparent.

“Since its inception, Gibbs Hybrid has built a powerful brand rooted in customer-centricity, belief in our people, and excellence in execution. We are so excited to join forces with such a like-minded organisation, which has led the way in talent solutions and workforce management for nearly three decades.

“Being a minority women-owned business, we understand the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workforce and the supply chain. By joining the Atrium family, we can continue to help our customers build inclusive teams that drive success, guidance, and mentorship, and more importantly, become role models for our industry.”

Rebecca Cenni-Leventhal, founder and CEO of Atrium, said: “Atrium is committed to continuing to expand our international delivery capabilities and the innovative, next-generation talent and workforce management solution offerings that we’ve come to be known for.

“While evaluating potential synergistic opportunities in EMEA, it became abundantly clear that Gibbs Hybrid’s track record of nearly two decades of success, shared passion for exquisite customer service, and alignment in core company values made it a natural fit for Atrium.”

Headquartered in New York City and with offices across the US and Canada, this acquisition further expands Atrium’s global footprint by adding a London headquarters.

Led by founder and CEO, Farida Gibbs, Gibbs Hybrid has pioneered a mixed model that offers both high-quality technology, business and operations strategic resourcing and technical/business consultancy solutions.

This integrated and hybrid approach allows clients to engage with a single preferred partner for multiple services using differing and flexible models to do so, based on their requirements.
