Accordion acquires ABACI: Executive Insight
Nick Leopard, CEO of Accordion, commented on the news:
“This acquisition fits perfectly with our CFO Tech strategy. The addition of ABACI to the Accordion family completes an essential part of our function-specific technology practice. And this technology has never been more important to PE-backed CFOs or their sponsors. Whether it’s technology to increase data visibility, to assess liquidity, to automate inefficient processes, or to combine operational and financial metrics for a more accurate picture of business performance, the right investment in good technology stack is essential and urgent. Our clients will benefit from ABACI’s deep knowledge of private equity-backed companies and their unparalleled experience implementing NetSuite and Adaptive Planning. ABACI customers will benefit from a more comprehensive suite of CFO services. And all of our employees will benefit from the merger of two companies that put their employees first. Like I said, it’s a perfect fit.
John Moser, President and CEO, ABACI, added:
“Accordion is the right fit for our team and our customers, now and in the future. Not only will this acquisition provide our customers with a broader range of CFO-related technology expertise and more comprehensive support for process-driven efficiency, it will introduce them to a team of like-minded experts who roll up their sleeves and get the job done. Just like ABACI, Accordion values people above all else. We value creating a performance-based culture, where we can help our people achieve their goals and aspirations, and reward them for their hard work. We value entrepreneurship and agility, as well as creating an inviting and engaging workplace. We enjoy working alongside the diligent, but often resource-constrained members of finance teams with whom we engage in the trenches and achieve exceptional results. This acquisition makes this “we” bigger and better for our employees and customers. We couldn’t be more excited to be part of the Accordion team.
