People-first and purpose-driven leadership creates a new leadership
Harrisburg, PA – Dame Leadership, a distinguished leadership development company based in Central PA, has acquired Success Performance Solutions, a leader in employee assessments based in the Lehigh Valley. The official announcement comes today at 10:00 am via Livestream by Ed Dame, President, Dame Leadership, and Ira S Wolfe, founder and President of Poised for the Future Company.
After exceptional growth of his business over the past three years, Wolfe recognized the need for scalability and a succession plan. Dame Leadership, a client of SPS, approached Wolfe about growing its assessment business. Following six months of due diligence and negotiation, the deal officially closed August 1.
“Focusing your business on people and a higher purpose couldn’t be more relevant than it is today,” said Ed Dame, President, Dame Leadership. “Having worked closely with Ira and the SPS team for so long, we have no doubt that together we will help develop more great leaders who will lead their businesses to new heights.”
Wolfe, a Top 10 global thought leader in the future of work, HR, and leadership, will continue to lead the assessment business for Dame Leadership and join the team as a Senior Consultant. “I could not imagine a better next growth stage for the company and our clients. John Dame was my Vistage chair 20 years ago. We share the vision of purpose- and people-driven leadership and the acquisition allows both organizations to help more business leaders grow and achieve their goals faster.”
The acquisition of SPS fits into Dame Leadership’s growth strategy as the organization continues to expand its footprint and services. By purchasing SPS, Dame Leadership can offer clients a comprehensive suite of innovative and reliable assessments plus its coaching services nationwide. It will give clients more insight into their leadership teams and allow them to make decisions about hiring and developing company talent that align with their strategy and purpose.
“At Dame Leadership, everything we do is to help others become better and more purposeful leaders,” said John Dame, Owner & Managing Partner. “I have no doubt that the combination of Dame Leadership and SPS will help fulfill that mission.”
