Understanding Recruitment rebrands as Acceler8 Talent in the US

The US branch of technology, software and digital staffing recruiters Understanding Recruitment has rebranded as Acceler8 Talent.

Launched in Boston, US, in July 2019, the seven-member US team has focused on niche sectors in next generation technology: AI [artificial intelligence] and machine learning, hardware acceleration, quantum computing and silicon photonics. 

“We feel our rebrand reflects our mission and how the market has shifted over the years, where lightning-fast computation and systems and devices are conducting the way that the world operates,” said COO Matthew Ferdenzi.

The UK arm is based in St Albans, Herts.
