With a presence in 15 countries and 1,300 employees, the Ayming Group brings together experts in improving business performance through consulting, managed services and software solutions. Passionate about employee engagement and sustainable innovation, Ayming translates its passion for its 5,000 active clients into concrete results, enabling them to achieve 300 million HR savings and 50 million tax savings each year, and generating additional financing capacity of one billion euros.
The EMZ fund, along with Ayming’s leadership team, is acquiring a stake in the business performance consulting group to enable it to accelerate its international development. This move will also strengthen its software publishing business, the consulting group announced today.
The operation, finalized today, means that historical shareholders Barings, M&G, ICG and JP Morgan will exit the business. It allows Ayming’s leadership team, led by the president Hervé Amar and the group CEO Denis Blanc, to control the group.
“Our strategy of refocusing on the human resources and innovation markets, which we have been pursuing for three years, has now been validated by the interest of the EMZ fund. This change of shareholders will give us the ability to accelerate our development of managed services and software publishing in the fifteen countries where we are present“, explains Amar.
Driven by its international development, particularly in the United States and Germany, the consulting group has just completed two years of strong growth. It is also betting on the development of its digital offer with the release this year of new performance support software.
“Our analysis allowed us to quickly confirm the very “premium” character of Ayming’s offers for human resources and innovation. For us, this new shareholding structure is a key step in the constitution of a leading international business performance group” says François Carré, Managing Partner of the EMZ Partners.
