RGF Hong Kong Limited (Headquarters: Hong Kong; President: Takashi Kuzuhara) has acquired additional shares of Bó Lè Associates Group Limited ("Bo Le"), Asia's largest executive search company. With this share acquisition, Bo Le becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of RGF Hong Kong Limited.

RGF has been developing its services and operations with the aim of becoming the "No. 1 global integrated HR service provider," offering a full line-up of services (permanent placement including executive search and selection, staffing, and online HR) catered to both employers and job seekers globally and providing a wide variety of employment opportunities to users worldwide.

In 2007, RGF launched its first international HR service, mainly for introducing job candidates to Japanese companies, under the "RGF HR Agent" and the "RGF Executive Search" brand. That brand has expanded and currently has operations in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Vietnam, and Indonesia. On September 6, 2010, RGF acquired 14.3% of the shares of Bo Le, the largest executive search firm in Asia with offices in 11 cities in greater China along with 7 cities in Southeast Asia.

RGF acquired the remaining shares of Bo Le to strengthen its presence in Asia by combining Bo Le's assets - large, experienced, and stable staff; deep client relationships covering both multinationals and major local conglomerates; leading market positions in key growth markets, including China, Vietnam, and Indonesia; and an extensive database of job seekers - with Recruit's own expertise in permanent placement and leading market position in Japan.

Bo Le has 17 years of experience placing English-speaking and local-language-speaking staff with multinational companies. A wide range of services are provided, including executive search for senior management under the "Bó Lè" brand and selection services for middle and junior managers to regular staff under the "BRecruit" brand.

By bringing together the assets of Bo Le and the extensive know-how of the Recruit Group, RGF aims to provide high-quality placement services in tune with the needs of both clients and job seekers. In that way, we hope to bring the message of "Meet Your Opportunity" to as many people as possible.
