As we enter the new year, I would like to share some exciting news about the next chapter for Bates.
For some time, we have been searching for a strategic partnership that will help us to provide a broader range of capabilities to our clients across the region, North America, and globally.
We have decided to merge with BTS, a global leadership development firm based in Sweden with extensive operations in the US. BTS, like Bates, helps clients accelerate strategy execution. With 850 employees in 32 offices across the US, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East, BTS offers us the opportunity to truly work with clients at a global level, and to scale projects at all levels of their organizations. BTS offers a sophisticated array of services and products in leader development, perfectly complementing Bates offerings for the C Suite, teams, and high potential leaders.
The Bates team remains here for you. We have exciting plans to grow. Our commitment to excellence and to you will not change, it will only deepen. I will remain to lead the firm. Our Leadership Team, consultants, advisors, administrators, client relations, marketing and project managers will all be here for you and look forward to serving you in new ways.
As Bates becomes the new home of BTS Boston we will be sharing more information, including our thought leadership, and ways we can work with you. We would love to talk with you, learn about your priorities and explore ways we can help you in the future.
No one builds a business alone. I am deeply grateful to our team, our clients, and our broader global community. The entire Bates team appreciates our relationships with you. You are our reason for being. As we move forward, we are inspired to offer you all the best of Bates and BTS, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
