interRel Acquires Niche Technologists, a Leading BI/EPM Staffing Firm

Feb 11, 2015

Arlington, Texas, February 11, 2015 – interRel Consulting today announced the acquired ownership of Niche Technologists, Inc., a nationally recognized BI/EPM staffing services provider. Niche Technologists, founded in 1993, has provided placement services to clients with a substantial focus in the Oracle/Hyperion technologies. Niche is the first company interRel has acquired.

Daniel Barber, Founder and President of Niche Technologists and a 46-year IT veteran, said, “I’ve known and worked with Edward Roske prior to and since his founding of interRel and, in fact, have placed several Oracle/Hyperion professionals with him over the years. Edward has proven to be an honest and trustworthy colleague and friend, someone I can trust to do what he says he will do. I can think of none other I would prefer to continue Niche operations as I move into retirement.”

The acquisition of Niche Technologists increases interRel’s Oracle/Hyperion offerings with full-time staffing services.  Through Niche, interRel is able to match companies looking for qualified BI/EPM resources with talented Hyperion experts who are looking for a great new opportunity.  By expanding its resource base to include permanent placement staffing, interRel achieves greater access to the entire Hyperion community.  This advancement aligns with interRel’s mission to educate the world of Hyperion users and keep Hyperion on the forefront of the ever-evolving data analytics frontier.  

“Finding qualified BI and EPM professionals has long been a struggle as the demand for resources far outweighs the available supply.  All of our clients need, at one time or another, to hire additional BI/EPM resources to increase their full-time staff.  We also find people who are looking to move on from their current positions and want help finding a new company who needs their unique skills,” said Edward Roske, CEO of interRel.  “Niche Technologists has been providing BI/EPM staffing services from Director to entry level professionals throughout the U.S. over the past 20 years, and has built a reputation as one of the best go-to outfits for Oracle/Hyperion staffing services. Our acquisition of Niche as our Recruiting and Placement Division will enable us to offer our clients the opportunity to acquire top talent on both the consulting and staffing side.  Dan Barber is a long-time friend and I am glad he trusts me to build on Niche’s legacy of excellence.”

Edward Roske Named Head of Admissions Committee for Worst College in America

Dec 09, 2014
Shimer College LogoArlington, Texas, December 9, 2014 – Edward Roske, CEO of interRel Consulting, has been appointed as Head of the Admissions Committee for Shimer College. Shimer was named the “Worst Place to Study in America,” according to a recent ranking by the Washington Monthly. After the standings were released, Jon Ronson of The Guardian went to Shimer’s home in Chicago to investigate and determined that while Shimer may be the worst traditional college in America, it may also be the future of education. Earlier this year, Roske was inducted into Shimer’s Board of Trustees and is also a former student of Shimer from the 1990’s.
 
After studying at Shimer College, Edward Roske went on to enter consulting and became the first Essbase certified consultant in the world. He is now an Oracle ACE Director and a world-renowned speaker who has spoken on six continents just this year. In 1997, Roske co-founded one of the leading Oracle Business Intelligence consulting firms, interRel Consulting. interRel has been named to the Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for seven consecutive years. Roske also co-authors the “Look Smarter Than You Are” book series.
 
“Attending the worst college in America was the best experience I could have had for starting my own company. At Shimer, you cannot hide: all the classes are discussion-based and if you don’t participate, you don’t pass. It removed the fear I used to have about speaking up, making an argument, and then defending it,” said Edward Roske. “I am honored to be heading the Shimer Admissions Committee. I will help the college grow in any way I can because more than any educational experience I’ve ever had, Shimer has made me the person I am today.”
 
Shimer College is a small, private, liberal arts college located a few miles from downtown Chicago, Illinois. It was founded in 1853 by Frances Wood Shimer and Cinderella Gregory. Shimer has no more than 12 students per class in order to focus on discussion, not lecturing.  Shimer believes in reading original works instead of textbook summaries of the great ideas from classical literature.
 
“Shimerians like Edward Roske are leaders and leaders know that being the worst of the traditional means being the best for today,” said Susan Henking, President of Shimer College.
 
Dr. Chris Vaughan, Chairman of Shimer College’s Board of Trustees, added, “If being the worst means Shimer produces wildly successful entrepreneurs like Edward Roske and our many other creative and trailblazing alumni, I hope Shimer just keeps getting worse all the time.”
