The Fahrenheit Group Announces Merger with AXEO

The Fahrenheit Group Oct. 13, 2014

The Fahrenheit Group today announced its merger with Axeo, a Reston, Va.-based human resources consulting firm with its western operations located in Phoenix, Ariz. With the merger, Fahrenheit expands its successful advisory, accounting and finance offerings to now include HR consulting and fractional services under FahrenheitHR.

Tom Wimer, the founder and CEO of Axeo, will lead the combined FahrenheitHR practice. The Phoenix-based FahrenheitHR West (formerly Axeo West) business will be run by Terry Hindmarch, Scott Smith and the firm’s newest partner, Brad Harper, who will lead business development efforts in the western market. Harper founded the highly regarded Trigon Executive Assessment Center, which has been well established in the Phoenix market for many years. “We are thrilled to welcome Brad to FahrenheitHR West with his more than 30 years of human capital thought leadership and industry-recognized expertise in organization and leadership development,” said Wimer.

“With smaller businesses, the responsibility of managing HR often falls to busy executives who have other core responsibilities and competencies,” said Wimer. “Keeping pace with the complexity of HR management as their business grows can be overwhelming. Our experts allow these executives to stay focused on business results and customers, with the confidence of knowing their human resource operations are in experienced, capable hands for as a little or as long as needed.” Wimer added, “Because our consultants are all experienced professionals, we also have the expertise to help companies of all sizes for specific specialty needs.”

The addition of FahrenheitHR expands The Fahrenheit Group’s holistic approach, now encompassing the full talent lifecycle – starting with finding and retaining the right team, to performance management, compensation plan design, benefits planning and design as well as organizational and leadership development. “We identified early on that companies who depended on us for advisory, accounting and finance expertise also often lacked in-house HR capabilities. With market conditions improving – and more organizations looking for creative ways to retain talent and be more competitive in attracting new talent – this was an ideal time to add this capability to our wheelhouse. In meeting Tom, Terry, Scott and Brad, seeing the similarities in our businesses and our core values, we knew we had met the right partners,” said Keith Middleton, who co-founded Fahrenheit with Rich Reinecke.
