Orlando, Fla. — DME Consulting International, an Orlando-based professional services firm specializing in Performance Improvement and Leadership Development, announced today it will merge with one of the United Kingdom’s fastest-growing change consultancies – Curium Solutions.
The merger will allow Curium Solutions to capitalize on the success and infrastructure established by DME, as the U.K. firm seeks to expand their operation to the United States beginning in Florida. The partnership will also bring exclusive content, methodologies and other resources to the U.S. market.
The merged business, which will trade as Curium Solutions starting later this month, will work with companies of all sizes across multiple industries to lead change initiatives, develop internal talent capabilities and accelerate business growth.
Daniel Entwistle, founder of DME Consulting International, will now serve as Curium Solutions’ President of U.S. Operations.
“This merger will help us continue to deliver great solutions to our clients while also providing the infrastructure for us to develop further technological training solutions and utilize the vast experience of the Curium team,” said Entwistle. “Exclusive workshops, resources and globally tested methodologies will now be available to the U.S. market.”
James Farrow, co-founder and managing partner of Curium Solutions U.K. added, “Observing the growth of the economy in Florida over recent years made this an easy decision for us to make. We saw this as a chance to capitalize on the growing economy and support local businesses as we share learnings and insights from our 10 years in working with globally recognized businesses.”
Entwistle spent over a decade in the U.K. banking sector, followed by time in the U.K. consulting market before moving to Orlando in 2016. He is experienced and certified by a number of industry bodies in relation to change management and leadership development.
Curium is an independent change consultancy working with household brands across a range of sectors. These include Prologis, Lloyds Banking Group, OUP, E.ON, Kingfisher Group, Boots, Argos, Habitat, Zurich, Provident Financial Group, Shop Direct, Telefonica and Nationwide.
Curium Solutions will host taster workshops across Florida beginning in April. The company also plans to introduce an innovative digital academy platform in 2017 to complement its offering, along with exclusive access to some “new to market” products.
Curium Solutions is currently providing a free one hour initial consultation to new prospective clients throughout March.
