“We feel this is our opportunity to become part of the leading Microsoft partner in Europe” says Adelhard Türling, Managing Partner of aXon. “I am proud of the entire team that has worked hard to get where we are today and we are convinced that both our customers and our organization will benefit from the knowledge, the experience and the network of Fellowmind. We look forward to strengthen our position and further develop as a Fellowmind company."
Emiel Putman, founder and CEO of Fellowmind says: ”We’ve noticed the increasing demand of customers for a more integrated approach to their digital transformation. The acquisition of aXon gives us the opportunity to share and expand their knowledge of Digital Workplace technologies and simultaneously intensify our footprint in the German market. From the first introduction, we have been excited about aXon, as it is a successful, lively company with a potential to grow. But more important, we felt a cultural match – We both have a strong belief in putting our people at heart.”
aXon is one of the most valued Microsoft partners in Germany. After the acquisition, Fellowmind employs 1,450 employees across six European countries and has a combined turnover of 200 million euro. The acquisition is part of Fellowmind’s growth strategy in partnership with FSN Capital V*
