Wheelhouse Group to form new strategy and transformation line
Massachusetts-based consultancy The Cadmus Group LLC announced Wednesday it has acquired Wheelhouse Group, a Fairfax-based business and technology consultancy and federal contractor.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 2003, Wheelhouse provides organizational change management, stakeholder engagement and communications, workforce transformation and enterprise optimization services. The company employs almost 100 consultants.
“Wheelhouse’s outstanding consultants are highly adept at delivering the impactful, stakeholder-focused guidance leaders need to ensure organizations are equipped to adopt transformative actions that yield lasting results,” Cadmus President and CEO Ian Kline said in a statement.
The company will expand Cadmus’ federal client base, adding the departments of Treasury, Labor, Interior and Education. The acquisition also reinforces Cadmus’ existing presence with the General Services Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Department of Justice and commercial clients.
Wheelhouse will form a new strategy and transformation line within Cadmus’ U.S. public sector division. Wheelhouse co-founder and President Beth McDonald will lead the business line as a Cadmus senior vice president. Wheelhouse co-founder and CEO Laurie Axelrod will support the company’s integration and provide consulting services post-integration.
“Cadmus’ technical expertise directly addresses many of the challenges our clients are facing today and perfectly complements our team’s capabilities on the people side of organizational transformation,” Axelrod said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to offer this enhanced support to clients as they work to transform their organizations for long-term success.”
