The assets will also significantly expand the Arc network in the U.S., creating a robust complement to Arc's European business. Simon Foster, Group CEO of Arc, said "This is a major development for Arc. The acquisition will expand our capabilities and operations in the U.S. and bring an experienced team, strong brands, and more high-growth verticals into the network. The HR Tech and Ed Tech teams have an impressive track record of launching and developing their brands, and we're looking forward to working with our new colleagues to grow these portfolios and to further develop Arc in the United States." Ken Kahn, president and founder of LRP Media Group, added, "The HR Tech and Ed Tech portfolios include nine best-in-class brands that the teams have done a fantastic job transforming and expanding over many years. We are incredibly proud of the teams and brands and believe that we have found a great home for them with Simon and the Arc team. We look forward to watching them succeed in this new era." These portfolios reflect Arc's strategy to connect business communities wherever, whenever, and however they need. They provide a diverse range of engagement solutions for facilitating networking and business growth. The professionals are brought together through content platforms and networking events, like HR Technology Conference and Expo, Future of Education Technology Conference, HR Executive, District Administration and University Business.
