Pragmatics has been acquired by World of Talents

Pragmatics, a Netherlands-based leading provider of interim finance consultants, has been acquired by World of Talents (holding above House of Talents in Belgium and The Human Network in the Netherlands), an international HR group with a focus on profiles that are scarce and in high demand. By joining forces, Pragmatics and World of Talents will accelerate growth in the market for financial talents.

Founded in 2010, Pragmatics has become a well-recognized brand, providing interim finance consultants in the fields of business control, accounting and reporting, governance, risk and project and change management. Pragmatics employs higher vocational or university-level finance consultants and provides them to a broad client base that is diversified across multiple industries.

Founded in 2008, World of Talents has developed into an international, fast-growing specialized HR platform, operating primarily in Belgium through House of Talents and in the Netherlands through The Human Network. World of Talents comprises specialized companies active in outsourcing, interim and recruitment and selection, jointly accounting for more than 2,500 active employees in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany. The focus is strictly on bottleneck professions, with a structural and increasing demand. World of Talents is a portfolio company of Baltisse, a Belgian private equity firm.

Oaklins’ team in the Netherlands acted as the exclusive sell-side advisor to the shareholders of Pragmatics. This transaction emphasizes our strong track record and expertise in the HR sector. The team in Belgium supported the transaction.
