On March 22nd, Altran announced the completion of its acquisition of Aricent Technologies, creating the undisputed global leader in engineering and research & development services. As part of their Leadership Advisory Services (LAS), ChampionScott Partners (CSP) is honored to have assisted Aricent with its talent acquisition initiatives to support their transformation and growth objectives. Aricent, private equity sponsored by KKR until being acquired by Altran, retained CSP to help build its leadership team and sales organization globally in strategic growth markets.
Over the last 2 ½ years, CSP recruited 30 senior leaders for Aricent. Leveraging CSP’s LAS client engagement model, Frank Kern, Aricent CEO, and his senior leadership team partnered with CSP to appoint two Presidents and expand their sales and strategic account teams across Aricent’s three primary business units. CSP recruited Client Partners for Aricent’s key clients and industry segments as well as Client Leaders, Client Executives and Technology Sales Executives. Additionally, CSP worked closely with Aricent’s business unit Presidents for the appointment of specific roles in Europe, India, and North America in engineering, service lines and human resources. CSP also supported frog, a global design and strategy firm integral to Aricent’s offerings.
“We developed an in-depth understanding of Aricent’s business and their leadership needs. Assisting Aricent with the appointment of executives who are now having a positive impact on their business and driving successful outcomes in a period of transformation, is a tremendous source of pride and satisfaction for our entire CSP team” said Roy King, Managing Director, ChampionScott Partners. “When we began working with Aricent, our goal was to help them recruit leaders to drive business growth and Aricent’s market position for the future. We are accomplishing that as strategic partners,” added King.
