ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, announced today it has changed the name of London-headquartered ICF GHK. ICF GHK will now be known as ICF International.
Since ICF’s 2012 acquisition of GHK Holdings Limited, GHK’s legacy as a leading provider of advisory services to U.K. governments, the European Commission, donor agencies, and multilateral development organizations has been successfully integrated with ICF’s expansive professional services portfolio and extended global footprint.
“Changing the name of ICF GHK to ICF International helps build ICF brand recognition in Europe and Asia,” said ICF International Chairman and CEO Sudhakar Kesavan. “This change will support continued growth and success for ICF’s more than 4,500 employees around the globe, leading to more opportunity to support challenging world issues.”
“This name change reflects our successful integration of ICF GHK within ICF and simplifies our identity for clients. It recognizes that we are able to bring additional services from across ICF to meet client needs,” said Jeanne Townend, executive vice president for ICF International. “We have a continuing commitment to delivering the best solutions for our clients’ complex challenges.”
