Doherty | The Employment Experts Announces Acquisition of Dahl Consulting

A staffing and recruitment agency since 1980, Doherty’s newest expansion will grow their contingent workforce solutions with information technology recruitment and MSP/VMS services.

Minneapolis, Minnesota – May 01, 2017

Doherty | The Employment Experts (Doherty), the largest family-owned, Minnesota-based staffing and recruiting agency, has acquired Dahl Consulting (DAHL) in St. Paul, Minnesota.“We are pleased to announce that Dahl Consulting will be joining the Doherty family of companies,” said Valerie Doherty, co-founder and CEO of Doherty | The Employment Experts.

“As Doherty continues to build our business, strategic acquisitions are a critical component of our overall growth strategy. Our acquisition of Dahl Consulting provides us with the opportunity to significantly expand our professional technology recruitment and managed service provider (MSP)/vendor management system (VMS) platform of offerings. We are excited to welcome an experienced and talented team of DAHL professionals to the Doherty family of companies.”

The transaction became official on April 1, 2017 at midnight and the newly acquired company will operate independently from Doherty for business service segmentation during the changeover. With DAHL’s outstanding customer service reputation, impressive growth throughout their existence, leadership team’s tenure, and women-owned business status, the business alignment with Doherty is very natural. The acquiring company’s first initiative is to assess and learn from the success DAHL has experienced over its impressive tenure in the market. DAHL’s corporate employees will continue to operate out of their St. Paul office location, providing clients and consultants with uninterrupted service. While retaining its current offerings, DAHL clients and consultants will now have access to Doherty’s expanded array of contingent workforce solutions and recruiting resources. Conversely, Doherty clients will benefit from DAHL’s strong IT and professional service personnel sourcing expertise, as well as their breadth of MSP knowledge with access to their VMS platform, named contract-central.

Additionally, Valerie explained that one of Doherty’s second generation owners (her son, Mickey), has become a corporate employee at DAHL’s office location in St. Paul.

“Mickey Doherty has been named as DAHL’s new Director of Business Development. Mickey has demonstrated extraordinary sales leadership in helping to build the Doherty brand and business; we are delighted to have him join DAHL’s dynamic team.”
