PE firm critically needs merger integration experts
A PE operating partner came to us with a critical need for a merger integration consultant to help them develop a playbook, provide resource coaching, and execute a planned merger of their existing portco with a new add-on in the software sector of the industrial services industry. With a lot of operational integration that needed to be done and the target add-on in the process of acquiring two additional companies, the firm urgently needed a small team of merger integration experts that could manage the complexity of this integration. The PE firm was seeking a provider that had industry expertise, a proven track record of successful merger integrations, and the ability to start in the next month.
