We have acquired Dutton Fisher Associates Ltd - the national training provider with a focus on organisational, leadership and people development and a leading provider of training and apprenticeship provision to the social housing sector.
As from 31st January 2023, the company, along with Kingdom Training will be rebranded as Kingdom Academy (as below) and will become part of Kingdom Group.
Directors and business owners Paul Dutton and Jo Fisher will continue to lead the company along with the existing SMT.
It will be a soft transition and business as usual for the Dutton Fisher customers, learners, and colleagues – but with all the benefits that Kingdom can provide, which include wider “one stop” service capabilities, working synergies, specialist knowledge, and customer and people solutions that come from being part of a 7000+ colleague and £250m turnover organisation operating across a UK-wide office network.
Directors and business owners Paul Dutton and Jo Fisher, said: “we are excited to be joining the Kingdom Group that shares our company values and will provide solid foundations for the continued success of the company for years ahead. Our focus on delivering quality provision and excellent partnership working with clients will remain at the heart of what we do.”
Our CEO Terry Barton, said: Training is at the very forefront of every company within the Kingdom Group. Having the expertise of Paul and Jo to lead our Kingdom Academy company makes us even stronger as a business but also makes Kingdom a serious training provider to support our existing and new customer needs. That is a serious proposition indeed along with all the other fantastic services we provide.
I welcome Paul, Jo, and their team into Kingdom. Dutton Fisher is an excellent business with values that match our own and this is another exciting acquisition completed early in 2023 that supports our 2023 ambitions.
My team will support Paul and Jo in achieving their own aspirations and with a seamless integration to ensure we absorb the very best of both companies.
