ICM Associates joins Pawlik Consultants

On April 1st, 2016, Pawlik Consultants GmbH became the majority shareholder of ICM Associates. ICM’s minority shareholders and management team are now Charles Gancel, Andreas Kaufmann, Laetitia Mazauric and Monika Thiel.
ICM Associates and Pawlik bring complementary competencies to the new group and share commitment to growth and quality of service that will continue to define how we work and interact with our clients.

For the moment ICM Associates will continue to operate under its current brand.

Pawlik Consultants was created in 1996. The Group has four offices in Germany, one in the Netherlands, one in Hong Kong and today one in Paris and works with a team of 160 consultants. It has developed a leading position in “Organization Transformation” and “Learning Architectures”: a systematic process that includes diversified tools and processes deployed over time (on-close-off-the-job, eLearning, blended learning, etc.) to assess and develop management competencies for managers, leaders and sales teams in small and mid-sized German and international companies. Constantly innovating, Pawlik has developed SCAN©, a unique diagnostic tool to evaluate and develop these competencies based on the latest research in cognitive psychology.

ICM Associates brings the Pawlik Group its specific know-how in the areas of cultural transformation; team alignment; leadership and management development in an intercultural context; and development of horizontal cooperation across multinational companies.

The marriage of these two complementary offers is at the heart of our ambition: to create a European leader in the field of consulting.

For you, clients with whom we have worked for many years, this means we can offer you a broader set of competencies and a larger team who can easily deliver projects in Europe, the United States and Asia. Alongside our goal of growth and development, we commit to maintaining the quality of service and relationships that have always characterized our work.
