Ajilon is now Modis Australia after local rebranding effort

30 Apr 18

IT consultancy and recruitment company Ajilon Australia has officially been re-branded as Modis, in an effort to support parent group Adecco’s ambition for Modis to become the number one global technology professional staffing and solutions company. 

Modis is a global brand that is 100% owned by The Adecco Group, with presences in the US, Europe, Canada and Singapore.

While Ajilon will transition to become Modus’ Australian arm, the company will offer the same services from its network of offices established by Ajilon in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

The company will continue to offer the same services for customers, including professional staffing and consulting, project services, managed services, customised solutions and full IT outsourcing projects.

The Modis Australia team will continue to be led by the existing Ajilon Australia leadership team, with Rod Crozier overseeing the Modis Staffing business and Omar Alim heading Modis Consulting. 

Crozier and Alim, with their teams, report directly to Melbourne-based Rafael Moyano – CEO, Modis Australia and the wider Adecco Group in Australia. 

Today, nationally, 1100 colleagues will move from Ajilon to the new Modis brand.

Adecco Group Australia CEO Rafael Moyano says, “These are exciting times for the Modis brand globally as we see selected Adecco Group brands transition to use the new Modis brand – while at the same time continuing to deliver the expertise and capabilities that these existing businesses worldwide have become known and valued for – in this case, the Ajilon brand in Australia.

“We will continue to bring vast experience, flexibility and agility to our global customers to support them as they themselves transition for further growth." 

Globally, Modis now serves almost 20 territories across four continents, combining the existing Modis businesses in IT, engineering and life sciences solutions in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The company recently underwent its own rebrand, with a new visual identity being unveiled to reflect - as the company describes - “its evolution as a global leader in the science and technology professional staffing and solutions sector”.

In Australia, Modis joins other Adecco Group brands operating nationally including Adecco, Spring Professional, Lee Hecht Harrison & Pontoon Solutions.
