Acquisition Enhances Strategic Consulting Services
Fairfax, Virginia, January 23, 2007 -
ICF International (Nasdaq: ICFI) announced today that it has acquired Advanced Performance Consulting Group (APCG), a 29-person Washington, D.C., consulting firm that specializes in helping federal organizations develop and implement strategy, improve enterprise performance, manage change, support employee growth, and communicate effectively.
“APCG and ICF share a common vision and are market leaders known for their dedication to quality and commitment to integrity,” said Sudhakar Kesavan, chief executive officer at ICF. “Across a broad array of federal and other government clients, ICF can provide scale and complementary expertise to APCG’s strategic consulting services, while APCG can provide ICF with an expanded set of clients and experience in strategic organization and performance measurement.”
A small, woman-owned management consulting firm founded in 1998, APCG has earned an excellent reputation for helping federal agencies improve business performance during a time of increasing budget pressures, regulatory compliance, and technology-driven change. Since its inception, APCG has achieved extraordinary levels of customer satisfaction. Recognition includes two consecutive years on Washington Technology's "Fast 50" list of outstanding small companies—with a rise to No. 19 in 2005—and receipt of the 2003 Women in Technology (WIT) Entrepreneur Leadership Award for outstanding accomplishments in mentoring and entrepreneurship.
“APCG enjoys a reputation as a strategic advisor to senior-level federal clients. The firm works to ensure that decisions look beyond short-term fixes to focus on long-term strategic solutions that will make a tangible impact within the organization. Our services complement ICF’s strengths in providing federal and other government clients with end-to-end solutions to their most challenging issues,” said Kimberly (Kymm) McCabe, president and chief executive officer of APCG.
“With corresponding client coverage, APCG and ICF see a good strategic fit and believe that there are growth opportunities in many areas for both firms,” said Ngozi Irondi, co-CEO and vice president of APCG. “APCG’s work will enhance ICF’s capabilities in human capital and strategic communications consulting.”
Kymm McCabe and Ngozi Irondi will continue to manage the APCG business within ICF.
