Paris La Defense, January 11, 2018 – Talentia Software, leading provider of HR and Financial Performance enterprise software, accelerates its international development through the acquisition of Swiss company Addedo.

With close to 11 Million euros in sales, about 25 employees and 200 clients –among which many publically listed corporations-, Addedo has offices in Switzerland, Germany and Canada.
Michael Kempter will remain President of Addedo to lead Talentia Software’s operations in the DACH region (Germany Austria Switzerland) and the starting operations in North America, with the full support of his current management team. He is joining the Executive Board of Talentia Software and he will report directly to Viviane Chaine-Ribeiro.
With more than 55 Million euros in sales (2016), Talentia Software has operations in France, the UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece.
