Human resources consultancy The Segal Group has acquired a smaller HR consulting firm. The Singer Group was acquired to bolster the public sector HR capabilities of The Segal Group.

The Segal Group, a New York-based consultancy specializing in the provision of strategic HR and benefits consulting services, recently acquired the Baltimore-based human resources and consulting firm The Singer Group.

The Singer Group provides human resources-related consulting services including compensation, organizational design, performance management, and team development to its public sector-dominated client base. Over the years, the firm has a developed a particularly deep expertise working with library systems, an advantage which piqued Segal’s interest.

“The Singer Group’s growing focus on service in the public sector and to library systems during the last decade and a half have set it apart as a go-to firm among these employers,” said David Blumenstein, President and CEO of The Segal Group. “We are pleased to welcome their additional perspectives and expertise to Segal.”

The Segal Group employs more than 1,000 people in the US and Canada. The Singer Group is now a part of Segal Waters Consulting, the public sector HR consulting practice of The Segal Group. Two principal employees will be moving to the Segal Waters office in Washington D.C. – founder and CEO Dr. Paula Singer, and Senior Strategist Lorraine Kituri.

“We see increased opportunities for our clients because of this transaction, allowing us to offer a wider range of services and to take on more projects concurrently,” Dr. Singer commented. “With our size as an independent firm, succession planning for our clients was becoming a concern. Now, as a part of Segal, we can offer continuity for these clients into the future. They will now receive Segal’s market-leading educational materials on compliance and benefits, as well as guidance to help them navigate the maze of laws and regulations related to benefit plans.”

The terms of the transaction were not released.
