Logistics Management Institute has acquired a management consulting firm that specializes national security customers.
Terms of the deal for FourWinds Limited Co. were not disclosed, but the deal lets LMI expand its capabilities and reach with intelligence agency customers, the company said in a release.
“We selected a company that fits our culture, particularly in intelligence programs at LMI,” said Kellene Ecker, director of LMI intelligence programs.
The companies have worked together for some time, Ecker said.
LMI has been looking for an acquisition in this area for some time and was most interested in acquisition targets with expertise in performance management, business analytics, and strategic communications, the company said.
“This acquisition nearly doubles our intelligence team’s size and will enable us to combine complementary skillsets to best serve the community,” said Ed Stanton, senior vice president of strategic growth at LMI.
The deal is a result of a new strategic plan the LMI board approved that includes acquisitions as a growth vehicle in the federal and international markets, the company said.
