Ascentor joins Amtivo Group
Ascentor have been acquired by Amtivo Group, providers of accredited certification, training and technology-enabled services.
Amtivo Group announced the signing of an agreement with EMB Group to acquire Ascentor and its ACM-CCAS brand in a deal that will add further to the group’s international presence and increases the range of services it can offer to its growing client base. The acquisition of Ascentor will also strengthen Amtivo’s UK certification offering, notably with the addition of security industry certifications.
With Ascentor joining the group, Amtivo gains a “military-grade” cyber security consulting practice with Intellectual Property that can be used to build upon its range of products for small and medium-sized companies.
Ascentor MD, Dave James, said “The entire Ascentor team are looking forward to working with Amtivo Group and taking the Ascentor brand into new markets. During a brief period of transition over the next couple of months we’ll be sharing more details about what our new ownership brings to the Ascentor offer.”
Amtivo CEO, Mike Tims, announced “I am delighted that we have been able to reach an agreement that will add these well-regarded businesses to our existing portfolio. Through these latest acquisitions, we have added significantly to the expertise and experience of our team.”
EMB Group CEO, Stephen Smith, said “I am delighted that we have found such a complementary strategic fit in Amtivo for Ascentor, giving them access to the fast-growing cyber security market. With its ability to invest, I am sure these businesses will continue to grow rapidly under Amtivo’s ownership”.
