Announces merger with Xcellero Leadership


Novo Group, Inc., Brookfield has announced its merger with Xcellero Leadership, a Naperville, Ill.-based leadership and organizational development firm.

Novo Group’s combined practice offerings with Xcellero Leadership’s programs encompass the full talent lifecycle, from finding and recruiting talent, to ensuring that investment made in people guides organizations to achieve sustainable growth.

“Our clients know talent is the game changer in organizational performance,” said Kelly Renz, CEO of Novo Group. “In this hyper-competitive talent landscape, organizations need to ensure their people are equipped to grow as individuals and teams, and are effectively prepared to meet the demands of business challenges.”

The combined capabilities and experience of the Novo Group and Xcellero Leadership more than doubles the size of their national Talent Effectiveness Solutions practice, and adds depth to an already robust set of programs. Xcellero’s co-founders and Managing Directors, Andy Kindler and Doug McKinley, PsyD, will lead the Talent Effectiveness Solutions practice and team of consultants at the Novo Group.

“This merger expands the capabilities of the Novo Group’s Talent Effectiveness Solution practice by adding new assessments, coaching, and leadership development programs designed to improve individual and organizational performance,” said Doug McKinley, PsyD, and Managing Director of Xcellero Leadership. “We are so pleased to join this organization formally, as we mutually embrace the same standards of service and quality for our clients.”
