Executive recruitment agency acquired in MBO

Executive recruitment agency acquired in MBO

A LIVERPOOL-based executive recruitment and talent management consultancy has unveiled major rebranding plans following its acquisition in a management buy-out.
NDK International, based at the Plaza, Old Hall Street, has been bought from founder Neil Kelly by new joint managing partners, Simon Kerevan and Alex Martin, for an undisclosed sum.
The company will now shift its core focus onto psychometric assessment, coaching and mentoring, leadership development, recruitment process outsourcing, team development, engagement, succession planning and talent management services, whilst retaining a stake in recruitment and continuing to service its valued clients. It is also planning a major rebrand of the business before the end of the year.
Mitchell Charlesworth Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors acted on the deal, which involved private equity investment through the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS).
Simon Kerevan, who joined NDK as a director a year ago, said: After seven years growing NDK its founder, Neil Kelly, was looking to take a break and exit the business. Alex and I saw the potential to change the direction of the business and focus on a niche market and we decided it was a great opportunity to acquire the company.
Unlike many organisations we are seeing the credit crunch as an opportunity to really help businesses make the most of the people they have. People are an organisations most vital asset and in these challenging financial conditions we are working with companies large and small enabling them to put strategies in place to develop, retain and maximise the talent they have. This approach should see companies survive the current economic situation and put them ahead of the competition when the upturn returns.
