On to the NEWS..

It's Monday, November 4th 2019 and we have ANOTHER ACQUISITION... (APPLAUSE!)

Symphony Talent has just acquired SmashFly Technologies

Financial terms were not disclosed and only one significant staff change is being reported. Roopesh Nair President and CEO of Symphony Talent will also lead the new SmashFly organization, while Smashfly CEO Thom Kenney most likely and deservedly so exits the building for a beach and a series of fruity umbrella drinks.

Thom Kenney took the CEO reins just over a year ago and has worked magic once again. This (I believe) is Thom's 3rd acquisition... (applause) BRAVO Thom and Smashfly crew BRAVO!

This Symphony SmashFly combination creates a base of 600+ customers with over $110 million in annual recurring revenues and supports Hodes' UK growth and vision for global expansion.

Symphony Talent has been very very quiet, why because they're hunting TMP - (Elmer Fudd Laugh). No question this is a Symphony play against TMP who now - through acquisition - are both armed to the gills with tech, expertise, and supporting services... Damn, I'm excited...

But wait a minute the big question is... What's next for Beamery and Phenom? I guarantee Joel and I will tackle these questions and more... Much, much more on this Friday's podcast.
