Heidelberg / Frankfurt/Main, November 27th, 2014. With the new brand name “Questax“, Heidelberg-based Reutax AG and Frankfurt-based QUEST Softwaredienstleistung GmbH take up a firm position among the top players in the German market for personnel placement. According to the latest annual ranking by Lünendonk analysts, Questax brand would come in a combined 4th place among Germany’s IT staffing providers with overall more than 1,200 customers, the experience of 15,000 successful projects and a specialist pool of approximately 120,000 freelancers.

With the official closing of the transaction, Reutax AG will become a full subsidiary of QUEST Softwaredienstleistung GmbH. At the same time, the renaming, change and transformation of the legal form from Reutax AG to Questax Heidelberg GmbH as well as the renaming and change of QUEST Softwaredienstleistung GmbH to Questax GmbH based in Frankfurt will take effect. With Marko Albrecht (CEO), Kirby Weber COO and Andreas Nader (CFO), the companies will also get a new manage-ment, consisting of current management members of both companies. The existing network of company offices will remain unchanged.

Questax positions itself as innovation and quality leader in its service sector and represents the values of being ”Inspiring. Personal. Excellent.“  The sharp customer focus of all recruiters and consulting teams will be further intensified with services tailored to the specific needs of individual industries and business sectors: ”Our customers, and especially those recruiting for IT projects, no longer care for just standard personnel”, Marko Albrecht, CEO of Reutax AG and future CEO of Questax, explains. “Highly qualified specialists, industry expertise and innovative staffing solutions as part of individual recruiting concepts are in ever higher demand – and with Questax we have all the experience needed to answer to these challenges of modern IT staffing.“ “The alliance formed by QUEST and Reutax shows the importance of a strategic size when faced with dynamic markets“, says Hartmut Lüerßen, Partner at Lünendonk GmbH.

Consequently, the existing loyalty programs for personal advancement and the freelancer support in administrative tasks of their projects via the “Questax Lounge” will also be extended continuously.
