Alumni AB (part of Harvey Nash Group plc) acquires PAT Management AB

Stockholm, July 3 2017 - Alumni AB the Nordic's premier leadership services firm (part of the global professional services group Harvey Nash Plc), today announced that it has acquired PAT Management AB. The firms will continue to work as separate firms under their respective corporate names.

The acquisition brings together PAT Management's unique assessment and leadership development services, with Alumni's executive search, leadership consulting, and board services. The combined group will provide our clients with an unrivalled portfolio of leadership services in the Nordic and beyond, from assessing and developing existing leaders, to finding and appointing new leaders. The acquisition affirms the belief both firms share with our clients; business success through people.

"Leadership is more important now than ever. Organisations are under historically high pressure to adapt and transform to flourish in a rapidly changing environment. Securing the best leadership from the board as well as senior management is a critical fundament for success," says Magnus Tegborg, CEO and founder of Alumni. "Alumni has an unmatched footprint in the Nordics and an existing strong offering with leadership consulting. Combining our two firms further strengthens our scope of insight and services to support our clients' success."

"The Alumni/PAT Management union marks an important step not only for our two firms, but also for our clients in how we assess and develop their leaders and management teams," says Hans Fribergh, Executive Chairman of PAT Management. "This is the perfect combination of two great firms that will be uniquely positioned to help clients achieve their strategic goals and highest aspirations."

"The acquisition of PAT is an important step forward for the Harvey Nash Group, it brings high level capacity in assessment and leadership development as well as relationships at board level. The acquisition not only strengthens our leading Nordic position but also the development of our international group, deepening our relationships with our clients and candidates," says Albert Ellis, CEO Harvey Nash Group.

Alumni will continue to serve clients within executive search, board services, and leadership consulting. PAT Management will maintain its client operations within assessment and development of leaders and management teams under the brand PAT Management. When beneficial for our clients we will work together in close collaboration.
