Management consulting firm, Korn Ferry, has announced its move to a single unified brand, as part of its makeover plans.

Korn Ferry will phase out its legacy brands in its attempt to establish a more integrated approach to the marketplace. Korn Ferry had acquired Hay Group in 2015. Earlier too, it has acquired over a dozen companies between 2000 and 2015—Westgate Group, JobDirect, Lominger, LeaderSource, Lore International, Whitehead Manna, SENSA Solutions, Avature Argentina Recruiting Business, Avature USA Recruiting Business, Global Novations, Personnel Decisions International, Ninth House and Pivot Leadership.

The amalgamated brand will combine the collective power of Korn Ferry, as an enterprise, instead of distinctive segments or individual lines of business.

The strategy is aimed at highlighting the firm’s commitment and expertise to offer robust, integrated solutions reflective of the needs of its client base, in terms of talent and organisational requirements.
