ERE Media, Inc. has acquired The Fordyce Letter, the leading subscription newsletter for the third-party recruiting profession.
Paul Hawkinson, founder and editor of The Fordyce Letter since 1980, will retain full editorial control over the monthly publication.
“I have entertained a number of offers for The Fordyce Letter over the years but, until ERE Media, none have passed my muster nor have they offered the synergism I required for our valued subscribers. ERE Media more than meets my requirements,” Hawkinson wrote in a letter to subscribers.

Known as the gold standard for independents, most in the industry are familiar with The Fordyce Letter for its focus on issues such as closing candidates, recruiter compensation, collecting fees, and the legal challenges faced by independent recruiters.
As nearly one-third of ERE’s website subscribers describe themselves as third-party recruiters, ERE’s chief executive officer David Manaster (also see his blog entry) says he hopes The Fordyce Letter will supplement the menu of products, services, and offerings to provide balanced coverage for both sides of the profession.
