The CEO of staffing firm Recruit Gigs LLC, Armando Avila, has acquired California staffing firms Crestaff LLC and Restoration Staffing Exchange, which does business as California Labor Force. Crestaff is based in Irvine; California Labor Force is based in Sacramento. The acquisitions closed in April, and both the acquired businesses will continue to operate out of their current locations.

Management will remains at both firms, and Avila has become CEO of the companies.

“In my experience, niche agencies know where to find qualified candidates particular to their customer’s needs, and the key to success in today’s market is keeping up with the insatiable demand from our clients,” Avila said.
