“Since our partnership in 2019, we have seen significant growth, claiming market leading positions in the Benelux and Nordics regions as well almost tripling in size and profitability,” said Wessel Ploegmakers, partner at Main Capital. “Through organic growth and a selective buy-and-build strategy, the HR-software provider for talent assessment has emerged as a prominent player in Northern Europe.”
Main supported Assessio’s growth trajectory, including strategic acquisitions that enhanced its product portfolio and market presence, the release added.
The firm also backed Assessio’s acquisition of HFMTalentindex and Eelloo from the Netherlands and People Test Systems from Denmark.
