Love2shop Business Services Acquires FMI Group

Love2shop Business Services, the Corporate division of £385m turnover Park Group plc based in Birkenhead, has acquired Fisher Moy International Limited, the brand engagement specialists, in an all-cash deal for an undisclosed sum.

Chris Hartley, Director of Love2shop Business Services commented:

“The synergy between the two businesses made this acquisition an easy decision all-round. We offer the UK’s leading multi-retail gift card and voucher alongside some particularly innovative reward technology to support corporate reward initiatives that ultimately boost the engagement of employees in organizations of all sizes. Fisher Moy International (FMI) provides strategic consultancy and non-reward marketing services. Together we can now supply whatever any organisation needs to improve engagement with its employees and customers alike.”

John Fisher, Managing Director at FMI commented:

“As corporate employee engagement specialists we recognized that the variety of reward offers from Love2shop Business Services could be greatly enhanced with the addition of a strategic engagement consultancy. Raising levels of employee engagement is one of the key tasks CEOs cite these days in the successful growth of large organisations and the combination of strong reward technology innovation and consultative advice brought together by the two brands will put us in good stead to meet our client’s needs well into the future.”

John is a 30 year veteran of employee engagement programmes and recently published a book entitled, ‘Strategic Reward and Recognition’, aimed at HR engagement specialists.

FMI will remain in Chilton, Buckinghamshire and will initially continue to operate under the existing brand in order to spearhead Love2shop’s engagement services expansion and act as a local base for clients in London and the Thames Valley.
