A global 350+ year old B2B performance materials organization with expertise in the EU and Asia were looking to grow their operations in the US. They acquired a high-growth chip manufacturing company located in the mid-west and needed a strategic change and communications partner to support them in the integration journey.
From inception of the acquisition through the 12+ month integration, we lead change and communications strategy and execution. First, we worked cross-functionally in the global integration office and developed a change strategy that covered people, processes and technology to support the two companies coming together. Then, we delivered an external communications package for customers and investors to explain the specifics of the deal and strategic importance of the acquisition.
In the 12 months post-acquisition, internal enablement was key to the success of the program. The executive leadership team and organization model was re-built to support the newly integrated business. A major focus of our work was executive leadership enablement. We supported the newly integrated leadership team through the transition with bi-annual leadership conferences, defining organizational values and making culture transformation an actionable and measurable endeavor. BizLove was an integral contributor in every facet of change, culture and communications as it related to the M&A and Integration Program Office.
