Private equity owned- Global business marketing firm

Client Opportunity or Challenge:

  • The Client is a European private equity backed company; new investors have an aggressive growth plan in mind. Within 9 months of investment, the Client acquired 3 companies in the US- its first US investments.  Since growth via acquisition was not part of the core experience of our Client, our European Affiliate, Greene 6 Partners, based in Paris was engaged to support post merger integration and assimilation.  Since the diligence period was short, many risk areas were not well understood and required post acquisition remediation.
  • Most of the existing management team was leaving the company because of the relocation of  company headquarters, hence there was a time sensitivity to dealing with issues
  • We advised on a wide range of issues including
Organization structure IT Risk
