Expert professional services firm Gemserv has been acquired by Talan, an International Consulting Group in innovation and transformation.
London, 24th January 2023: Gemserv, a leading UK professional services company, has today announced it is joining the Talan Group. This marks a significant moment in Gemserv’s journey to become the point of reference for expertise in the energy and digital transitions.
There are clear synergies between the two businesses that can accelerate combined growth in the areas of the clean energy transition, cyber security, and wider innovation and transformation through technology. The acquisition will provide Gemserv with greater scale and an increasing range of capabilities to support client needs. It will also double the size of the current UK operations of Talan, complementing the existing businesses.
“I’m delighted that Gemserv is joining the Talan group of companies. Talan’s model is highly entrepreneurial and offers synergies and growth potential, including opening exciting international opportunities in the areas we seek to make a difference.
Talan are 100% behind our strategy and we will continue to support our existing clients – like those in energy code governance – as well as further growing out across new sectors and services. Having an aligned shareholder with a consultancy growth track record allows Gemserv to bolster its capability and increase focus on combining energy and digital expertise.
Importantly, being part of a bigger group of companies with similar values means we can offer greater career development and progression opportunities for our people.”
Mikael Thepaut, Chief Operations Officer of Talan, said:
“We have been searching for a company specialising in the energy transition for some time and were impressed by the professionalism and expertise of Gemserv. Gemserv is a great fit in terms of services, clients and purpose-driven impact.
I look forward to working with Alex and team as we combine our capabilities and continue the journey of using technology to enrich peoples’ lives and solve some of the greatest challenges of our time”.
Talan thanks Equiteq, Talan’s financial advisors for the acquisition of Gemserv.
