F.A.I.T.H. Resources, a recruitment and staffing firm originally formed in San Diego, said it merged with Advantage Placements, an Irvine recruitment firm, and moved its corporate headquarters to Newport Beach.

F.A.I.T.H., which stands for finance, accounting, information technology, and human resources, will continue to maintain its office in San Diego. President Joseph Ruiz will continue to lead the organization, while Elle MacKrell, Advantage Placement’s co-founder, will serve as managing director.

The company said it has plans to expand to Los Angeles.
