Wavelength acquires healthcare executive search specialist Ccentric Group
First acquisition for Wavelength and an exciting milestone during our 20-year celebrations.
We’re excited to announce Wavelength has acquired respected executive search firm Ccentric Group to bolster our C-suite and leadership recruitment service offering. Specialising in executive search within all facets of healthcare, Ccentric Group is well-established and has a great reputation for high-quality executive placements.
“Whilst Wavelength has always provided healthcare-specific executive search for Clinical Director and Director of Medical Services roles, this acquisition will greatly expand our capabilities at C-suite level,” says Wavelength CEO Chris Riley.
“Individually, we’re market leaders in our own right, but as a combined entity we’ll now be able to provide a broader best-in-class service offering to our loyal candidates and healthcare clients to really set us apart from other recruitment firms. This is Wavelength’s first acquisition and an exciting milestone for us during our 20th anniversary year,” says Wavelength Co-Founder and Director Claire Ponsford.
New executive talent division
Founded in Sydney by Wayne Bruce in 2001, Ccentric Group operates nationally from offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth with a dedicated team of recruitment consultants, researchers and support staff. The Ccentric brand will continue, given its international status and recognition, and will become Wavelength’s new expert executive talent division.
“In two decades, Wavelength and Ccentric Group have both emerged as key recruitment players with a similar inspiring vision and dynamic approach to business. This is underpinned by the same corporate values of excellence, integrity, and innovation to make a positive impact on communities in which we operate,” says Ccentric Group Founder Wayne Bruce.
“There are strong synergies between the two companies in terms of our complementary services. We will benefit from being part of a larger organisation with established corporate support and our clients will benefit from a total healthcare recruitment solution where they desire it,” he adds.
Global sourcing expertise
Wavelength and Ccentric Group are also both global sourcing specialists with expertise in placing candidates into Australia and New Zealand from countries such as the UK, Ireland, Canada, USA, Singapore, Hong Kong and other relevant parts of Asia. This acquisition will also allow both companies to collaborate across these valuable international talent pools.
“We firmly believe this acquisition will strengthen our longstanding client relationships and also enhance our service offering into new non-clinical leadership markets which is a great opportunity for us. We’re extremely excited to be joining forces with Ccentric Group and adopting their approach in this executive search space,” says Wavelength CEO Chris Riley.
“Since we opened our doors in 1999, we have consistently met the changing needs of doctors and healthcare organisations and our services have evolved and expanded accordingly. The acquisition of Ccentric Group is very much aligned with this philosophy,” Claire adds.
“Combining our expertise allows us to provide dedicated career support for candidates and to assist our clients with wider strategic C-suite hires. Together, Wavelength and Ccentric Group will provide a unique offering in the medical and healthcare recruitment market,” she says.
