Korn Ferry To Acquire Hay Group in $452M Deal

Korn Ferry has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Hay Group in a move seen as expanding Korn Ferry’s human capital consulting business.

Hay Group, founded 72 years ago, is a global leader in people strategy and organizational performance. It has a portfolio of intellectual property, including several of the world’s most comprehensive management databases.

Korn Ferry will combine Hay Group with its Leadership and Talent Consulting (LTC) business but will brand the combined advisory business as Hay Group. Stephen Kaye, CEO of Hay Group, will continue to serve in this capacity with Korn Ferry.
