Vivero advises LACE Partners on its Strategic Investment from Mobeus

Vivero is delighted to have supported LACE Partners (“LACE”), a leading consultancy in the HR transformation space, on its minority investment from Mobeus, a specialist investor in the UK SME market, with expertise backing and growing human capital businesses.

LACE was founded in 2014 by Aaron Alburey and Cathy Acratopulo, after successful careers at international consultancies. LACE has since established itself as a specialist leader in the HR consulting market, with an impressive client list consisting of large corporates and multinational clients. LACE leverages the experience and thought leadership of its highly skilled staff base to support CPOs and CHROs and their HR teams to deliver on their strategic aims.

The investment from Mobeus represents the first external investment for LACE and will enhance its offering to People functions across all industries. It comes at a point when the HR transformation market has significantly grown and will support LACE in expanding the capability and scale of its practice areas, to deliver against the increasing demand for its services, through organic and acquisitive growth.
