Paris, January 18, 2019. The strategy consulting firm Neovian Partners assisted the investment fund Eurazeo PME in conducting the Commercial, Technological and HR Due Diligence for the acquisition of EFESO Consulting, an international management consulting firm specialized in operational excellence.

Founded in 1980, EFESO Consulting had revenues of €70.7M in 2017 worldwide. Filippo Mantegazza has been the Founding President since 2007 and Lucca Lecchi and Bruno Machiels become co-CEOs. Today, the group has over 400 consultants working in 75 countries.

This operation will allow EFESO to consolidate the global market for operational excellence consulting in order to strengthen its position as a leading pure player and to respond to the needs of its international clients (as well as to organically develop its digital offering).

Patrick Richer and Annick Kervella, both Partners at Neovian, along with Benjamin Michel-Wertheimer, Manager, focused on studying EFESO’s strategic environment and qualifying the company’s unique character.

“During this mission, Neovian Partners used all its skills (strategic, technological, screening and HR) and all the teams worked together to achieve this great project. We are pleased and proud to have contributed to the development of EFESO, thanks to Eurazeo PME’s equity investment.

Michel-Wertheimer, Manager
