Technology Holdings is pleased to announce that it has acted as the exclusive financial advisor to BrightGen on its strategic sale to Credera, part of Omnicom Precision Marketing Group, the digital and customer relationship management specialist practice area within Omnicom Group Inc.
We started our journey with Technology Holdings 2 years back pre-COVID and we can confidently say we’re extremely happy with our decision to appoint them to help us find the right partner for BrightGen - we’re delighted with the outcome and would like to thank TH for their incredible efforts. From our first meeting at Dreamforce in the US, TH recognized our unique proposition as the largest independent Salesforce partner in the region and ran a structured and highly professional sale process to find the optimal strategic partner and achieve a premium valuation for the business. They secured numerous offers from buyers globally, leveraging their extensive buyer relationships and deep expertise in the Salesforce ecosystem and delivered a fantastic outcome for us! The TH team worked incredibly hard and were always by our side throughout the process as we navigated through the twists and turns of the transaction, providing us with sound advice and helping us find solutions to the challenges and complexities of the deal. We have found a great partner in Omnicom, and we look forward to working with them in the next phase of BrightGen’s journey.
