As an RGP subsidiary, taskforce AG offers a broad and internationally networked portfolio of management services
Germany's leading interim management company becomes part of the global consultancy company RGP(PresseBox) (Munich, )
Having originally planned a cooperation with RGP, both sides quickly became convinced that an acquisition of the stocks is the more consequent way forward. „As an implementationdriven consulting firm, RGP is a world-renowned provider of Intellectual Capital on Demand, whose understanding of services and culture fits in perfectly with ours“, Jens Christophers explains. Mark Campbell, Senior Vice President Europe comments on RGP's commitment: "taskforce has a strong reputation in Germany and we are convinced there is a strong alignment with our business model, client coverage, culture and values. RGP believes that we can help taskforce to serve its German based clients elsewhere in the world using our global coverage. Furthermore, the opportunity exists to better serve RGP’s existing clients within Germany by drawing on the proven expertise within taskforce.”
Even after the acquisition, taskforce will continue to operate independently in the market under its current brand name with the addition of "an RGP Company". The management remains unchanged: Christophers and Koch will continue to be responsible for the operating business in the coming years. Since its foundation, taskforce has developed into one of the most important players in the market for interim and program management in Germany and is now one of the top 3 providers. With steady growth, ongoing optimization of sales and talent management processes as well as of partner and manager structures, taskforce is with increasing demand and positive sales and capacity utilization in excellent shape. More than 100 partners and associated managers as well as further 800 network managers bundle their competences in line and project management in the largest German firm, which offers experienced top managers a common competence and marketing platform.
The decision taskforce AG to join an internationally successful company is essentially based on the following reasons: With RGP, taskforce expands and broadens its range of services for German companies and groups in an international environment.
- As an RGP company, taskforce will in future also offer One Face to the Customer to international customers in Germany.
- Thanks to its global presence, taskforce will be able to offer its managers more international assignments in the future.
- The sale ensures the long-term development of the company and the succession of the founders.
