News : ClearCourse Acquires CRM and Technology Consultancy Hart Square
London, UK, Jan 16, 2020 -- Aquiline-backed ClearCourse has acquired Hart Square, a provider of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and digital consultancy services for charities, not-for-profits (NFP) and professional membership organisations across the UK.
The acquisition aligns closely with many of ClearCourse’s existing businesses who have clients in these sectors and reinforces the Group’s commitment to the space.
With ClearCourse’s support, Hart Square plans to enhance its services and extend the support it provides NFPs, building upon its educational work to inform the sector of the range of digital services that are available. Hart Square will also expand its thought leadership efforts, launching two new digital newsletters, and extend its conference programme outside of London. Hart Square’s leadership team will continue to run the Company, and will remain responsible for the events, consulting business and vendor selection process.
Gerry Gualtieri, CEO of ClearCourse, says: "We’re excited to welcome Hart Square to ClearCourse. It has an excellent reputation as a market leading consultancy and is wholeheartedly trusted by its clients. By acquiring Hart Square, we see an opportunity to solidify our commitment to the NFP sector and to draw on the team’s expertise to ensure we remain at its forefront. We understand that Hart Square’s value to its clients lies in its impartial advice and the management team and ClearCourse are committed to ensuring this continues. We look forward to working with Glenda and her team going forward."
Glenda Parker, CEO of Hart Square, says: "Over the last 10 years, we have worked hard to earn our place as a trusted voice to our clients by embedding ourselves within the NFP sector. Our transparency has always been paramount to our client relationships, and we will continue to uphold this philosophy as we execute on our expansion plans. Joining ClearCourse will allow us to implement numerous growth initiatives that will improve and increase our offering to the sector. Following the deal it will be business as usual for our team and we look forward to offering our clients some exciting new services, as well as providing them with an enhanced level of support as we enter this new phase of our journey."
The financial terms of the deal have not been undisclosed.
