As part of the acquisition, Elixirr welcomes four new partners into the team: Insigniam Founding Partners Shideh Bina and Nathan Rosenberg, as well as Katerin Le Folcalvez and Jennifer Zimmer.

Stephen Newton, Founder & CEO of Elixirr, says:

“I am always exceptionally proud to expand our team, and finding the right people to bring into the group is no small task. Our M&A team works tirelessly to find companies that not only broaden what we’re able to offer clients but improve the work we’re already doing with them. We also look for those who share in Elixirr’s ethos, entrepreneurial spirit and desire to create meaningful change – and in Insigniam we have found exactly that. I look forward to seeing the impact of their team’s unique approach to consulting – which looks deeply into the areas many consultancies often overlook or don’t have true capability to impact. They are the undisputed market leaders in transformation and organisational change, and this is something that will be extremely valuable to both our current and future clients. By combining our services and expertise, from strategy through to execution, we are very well-positioned to provide full end-to-end services to our collective clients in a more impactful, dynamic way.

Shideh Sedgh Bina, Co-Founder of Insigniam, says:

We are thrilled that Elixirr not only expands our ability to provide an enhanced range of services for our clients, but also enables us to partner with C-suite executives to design and execute on their fit-for-21st-century-agenda. The Elixirr disrupter mindset, entrepreneurial culture and leadership team are perfectly aligned with our commitment to serve our clients to deliver remarkable results. Like Insigniam, Elixirr is not afraid to challenge convention, talk straight and disrupt the status quo. Elixirr and Insigniam both hold dear an ethos of deep client service, and we believe that together, combining the best of ‘being human’ with technology and data, we will deliver dramatic new outcomes for our clients.

Nathan Owen Rosenberg, Co-Founder of Insigniam, says:

“Insigniam’s combination with Elixirr gives our clients a range of services that, in my scan of the market, has not been available. Already, the Elixirr partners and Insigniam partners are collaborating to catalyse new value for our combined clients, as well as working on a new set of offerings. Literally, we can now offer the full range of expertise and services needed to transform a CEO’s agenda into reality. Clients will see new capabilities to fulfill their intentions. We now provide extraordinary value to the CEO and his or her team and to each executive in the C-suite, beyond what either firm could offer before the combination.”
