X-PM welcomes Lorenz & Hamilton group to its equity

WIL Group member X-PM has strengthened its capabilities in executive interim management through an innovative partnership with HR consulting group, Lorenz & Hamilton.

X-PM is a fast-growing company and achieved growth of 35 per cent last year. Its success is largely the result of growing demand globally for leaders with strong business transformation expertise.

As part of its ambitious future plans, X-PM is seeking to harness the potential of digital technology to further boost its people sourcing capabilities. The equity partnership with Lorenz & Hamilton is a significant step forward on this journey.

Patrick Laredo, founder and chief executive of X-PM, said: "To stay ahead in this competitive market, rapidly responding to clients is crucial. If the loss of a CFO threatens a company's accounting processes, we need to find them an experienced, available leader in a matter of hours. Similar emergencies can affect transformation projects and operations -- meanwhile other organisations need urgent support to drive innovation and new developments.

"The latest exclusive sourcing tools, such as those developed by Lorenz & Hamilton, help identify candidates fast, ensuring us a real head-start. Within our new partnership with Lorenz & Hamilton, our goal is to create the first human capital management ecosystem."

Lorenz & Hamilton was founded in 2008 by Ludovic Bourg. As a holding company it is involved in a number of human resources consulting services, including executive search and outplacement.

The group is a pioneer in the analysis of big data on human capital. Working with the University of Montreal (Canada) in 2017, it developed an artificial intelligence solution for sourcing experienced executives.

Under their new alliance, the two companies plan to develop their operational synergies to build a wider network and take executive search to the next level.

Ludovic Bourg said: "We and X-PM have a shared ambition. Together we seek to respond to the global challenges of transformation and value creation. By combining X-PM's expertise and business insights with our cutting-edge technological know-how, our joint venture will be a source of disruptive innovation."
