FSP advises Burnham Business Psychology on merger

Assessment and Development Consultants merges with Burnham Business Psychology.

The corporate team at Field Seymour Parkes led by Penelope Garden have advised the shareholders of Burnham Business Psychology on its merger with Assessment and Development Consultants (“a&dc”).

Both companies share a common vision to deliver best in class assessment processes, which provide an engaging and immersive candidate experience.  Already offering organisations rigorous and innovative employee assessments that capture talent data and metrics throughout the employee lifecycle, this merger enables them to offer broader expertise across the complete assessment spectrum.

a&dc’s commitment to being the leaders in behavioural assessment and development is furthered by the addition of BBP’s focus on designing bespoke assessment solutions which along with their collective consulting experience and design expertise, put them at the forefront of the assessment market. This merger also sees the two businesses bringing together their extensive offerings in the leadership assessment and development arena.

Peter Burnham, Director of BBP said: “We are excited by this merger because we believe it creates a unique company which can offer our clients integrated assessment and development solutions, providing more effective talent measurement to help give them the greatest certainty when making business decisions. Penelope Garden’s efforts were vital in completing the transaction in a tight time frame and I would certainly use her again.”
