DDA & Company advises Teamwill Group in its acquisition of consultancy firm Talendo Consulting

Advised by DDA & Company, Teamwill Group carries on its acquisition spree with the purchase of Talendo Consulting. The team of 50 consultants, specializing in consultancy and project management on digital transformation projects in the leasing and specialized financing sector, bolsters Teamwill’s core expertise in this segment.

This acquisition is the third one in less than 6 months after the acquisition of IMEX, a Belgian management consultancy specializing in the car leasing sector, and ORCA, a provider of business tool solutions and mobile applications to sales networks in the financial services sector (banks, automobile captive finance companies and financial institutions).

Teamwill is therefore continuing to implement its ambitious strategic growth plan combining double-digit organic growth and external growth in France and internationally. With this operation, Teamwill reinforces its domestic leadership in its market and its ambition to become the leader in Europe by 2023. It has passed the 450-employee mark and is expected to achieve a turnover of around €45 million in 2020.

Anis Chakroun, Founder and Chairman of Teamwill Group, says: “We are delighted to welcome the Talendo Consulting team of experts to our Teamwilliens team! This transaction is a further step in our strategy to become the European leader in consulting in the digital transformation of the credit and specialized financing market“.

Alexandre Odin, Partner at DDA & Company comments: “With this transaction, largely carried out under complex Lockdown conditions, Teamwill once again demonstrates its determination, its execution velocity and the relevance of its model. We are very pleased to be able to contribute to this very stimulating project“.

The DDA & Company team, composed of Alexandre Odin, Thomas Glasgow and Clément Darcourt, advised Teamwill Group in this transaction.
