CHPD Acquired By Capital H
A Principal Of 7 Mile Advisors Acted As The Sell-Side Advisor To CHPD In Their Sale To Capital H Group
Capital H Group, a rapidly expanding consulting firm headquartered in Chicago, acquired the UK-based Centre for High Performance Development (CHPD). Prior to this acquisition, Capital H Group had recently closed another round of private equity funding and was building a consulting firm through acquisitions and organic growth to help companies create more value – through their people – for better business results. The acquisition of CHPD, a specialist leadership and management training consultancy headquartered in London, was an important first step into global expansion for Capital H Group.
Through the acquisition, Capital H Group was able to offer clients a rigorous and validated methodology to help corporate leaders drive better performance. CHPD, in turn, was able to offer its clients the complementary portfolio of talent-related services – including change management, workforce planning, performance management and HR process improvement – that Capital H Group offers.
“We are very excited about our future together,” said Greg Silich, Chief Operating Officer of Capital H Group, at the time of the acquisition. “CHPD has an excellent reputation and a stellar client list of over 100 organizations worldwide. Their database of more than 10,000 leadership profiles is recognized as one of the foremost benchmarking tools for developing future leaders. Most organizations today recognize that effective leadership is absolutely critical to their success, so the market opportunity for leadership development services is huge.”
Julia Payne, chief executive of CHPD, said: “Being part of Capital H Group gives us access to new products and new markets which will help us grow the business and service our clients even more effectively. Our expertise and research has focused on the area of leadership development and management training, from first line manager up to CEO. With Capital H Group, the potential for both geographic and product expansion is very exciting.”
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. CHPD continued to operate under its name as a division of Capital H Group in the UK.
