KBS Corporate Advises on Sale of Coaching For Change Ltd
KBS Corporate has successfully advised on the acquisition of Coaching For Change Ltd to GLD Management Ltd.
Founded in 2006, Coaching For Change is a management consultancy focused on developing its clients’ internal capability to deliver sustainable business improvement and change.
Since inception, the company has gained recognition as an approved centre with the Institute of Leadership and Management, the UK’s largest awarding body for leadership and management qualifications, and the Chartered Management Institute, an accredited professional institution for management.
After presenting the opportunity to acquire Coaching For Change to a number of buyer types, KBS Corporate was able to successfully finalise a deal with Doncaster-based GLD management. The acquirer was seeking a company to bolt on to its existing service offering and was impressed with Coaching For Change’s ongoing order book.
Established and run by management consultant Grant Bowman, GLD Management is an international business consultancy which provides specialist advice and guidance to SMEs. Its core operations include the mentoring and teaching of both individuals and teams, strategic marketing and business development.
During the acquisition process, the shareholders of both companies established a strong relationship, which will see them working in partnership going forward, as Coaching For Change’s Lee Kemp provides a handover period for approximately 18 months.
Oliver Thompson, Deal Executive at KBS Corporate, advised on the deal and commented, ““I am pleased to have enabled the directors at Coaching For Change to secure a sale and would like to thank both parties for their close cooperation during the process. I wish Lee and Grant all the best for the future”
