Concert Consulting has been acquired by Buck

UK-based pensions and employee benefits communications firm Concert Consulting has been acquired by Buck, the integrated HR and benefits consulting, technology and administration services firm.

Founded in 2004, Concert’s in-depth experience developing creative communication strategies through employee research, copywriting and graphic design for both print and digital media helps employers and trustees better engage with their employees and members. Its blue-chip client base comprises more than three million employees and plan members.

Based in New York, with global operations, and backed by HIG, Buck is focused on helping its clients realize the best organizational performance for their business while driving positive health, wealth and career outcomes for their employees. Through the addition of Concert, Buck will significantly expand its ability to develop and implement tailored engagement strategies for its UK-based and multinational clients, particularly in the high-demand area of pensions administration. Clients will directly benefit from personalized communications, and employees and members will have technology-enabled, user-centric ways of interacting with their benefits.

Oaklins Smith & Williamson, based in the UK, advised the owners of Bristol-based Concert Consulting on its disposal to Buck.
