Mountain View, Calif.—Online professional network LinkedIn announced it has agreed to acquire ChoiceVendor, a startup that provides ratings and reviews of b-to-b service providers in more than 70 categories in the U.S. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

San Francisco-based ChoiceVendor was founded by CEO Yan-David Erlich and VP-Engineering Rama Ranganath.

“Our acquisition of ChoiceVendor is right in line with our top priority to build a world-class team at LinkedIn," Jeff Weiner, LinkedIn CEO, said in a statment. “We've admired the work that Yan-David, Rama and the talented ChoiceVendor team have done for some time now, and are excited to have them join us.”
