Strategic Workforce Solutions
- Finance & Accounting
- Information Technology
- Light Industrial
- Administrative and Clerical
In 2007 Taglich Brothers Private Equity Group purchased two light industrial offices in the Midwest, forming the foundation of BGSF, Inc. Although the offices maintained a strong client base, the desire of the investors was to expand the company in multiple areas of the staffing industry, offering clients the ability to work with one company for all their staffing needs.
In 2009, industry expert L. Allen Baker Jr. was brought in as President and CEO to lead the company in growth through acquisition, while maintaining high standards of customer service to existing clients. Mr. Baker’s acquisition philosophy is one that not only brings financial growth, but unique and dedicated talent within the companies. His approach has led to a strong management team, with tenure and a desire to offer exceptional service to candidates, customers and investors.
