Spencer Stuart has acquired Boston-based Cambria Consulting, which specializes in individual and team development. Cambria Consulting's capabilities include coaching, executive assessment, competency modeling, role profiling, leadership development and leadership team effectiveness.

Cambria Consulting's offerings complement Chicago-based Spencer Stuart's growing set of leadership advisory services, which include executive assessment & development, coaching, CEO succession, team effectiveness, culture shaping, board effectiveness and the people side of merger integration, as well as those of Kincentric. Spencer Stuart acquired several businesses from Aon in July 2019, with capabilities including culture & engagement, leadership assessment & development and HR & talent advisory, and rebranded the businesses as Kincentric.

"Cambria Consulting has an outstanding team and suite of offerings, and we are pleased to welcome them to Spencer Stuart," said Patrick Hynes, global leader for Leadership Advisor Services at Spencer Stuart, in a statement. "This acquisition reflects our belief in the critical role of development in enabling leaders to create their desired impact. Cambria's focus on talent strategy, with a network of more than 150 coaches, is a great match for our existing leadership development solutions and will help enable us to scale our efforts to advise leaders more effectively."

This business is expected to operate as a distinct unit. It will retain its brand and be known as Cambria Consulting, a Spencer Stuart company.
