Covington, KY– September 3, 2019 - Effective September 1, 2019, TiER1 Performance has acquired Bottom-Line Performance (BLP), an Indianapolis-based firm that designs and develops custom learning solutions focused on increasing knowledge retention and end-user performance.

“Bottom-Line Performance is a natural fit for TiER1,” shares Greg Harmeyer, TiER1 CEO. “BLP has an extremely talented team of consultants with a high focus on relationships. Together, our growth strengthens our ability to develop people-centric solutions that increase the value we bring to our clients.”

Named to the Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies for 13 consecutive years, TiER1 continues to expand its core strategy activation offerings and the geographic markets it serves. To create this growth, TiER1 has combined a suite of people-centric services—leadership alignment, performance management, communications, learning and development, digital transformation, and change management —into an integrated approach that helps organizations activate their most strategic initiatives. BLP will strengthen TiER1’s existing services in the learning and technology space. In addition, BLP has deep client relationships and will broaden TiER1’s geographic presence in Indianapolis.

Sharon and Kirk Boller founded BLP in 1995. Under their leadership, they grew the organization to over 30 employees serving clients nationally, making this TiER1’s largest acquisition to date. BLP has been an LTEN Preferred Industry Partner since 2015.

“The initial draw to TiER1 was the alignment between its core values and our own. Cultural fit mattered to Kirk and me,” shares Sharon, BLP CEO. “This acquisition has enabled us to stay true to our values while also delivering on our goals of optimal solutions and an optimal workplace for our team members. We have gained capacity and capability for our clients and expanded opportunity for our team.”

Sharon Boller will remain with the team in a senior leadership role. The day-to-day operations of BLP will continue to operate as usual—providing the high level of creativity, innovation, and people-focused solutions that clients have come to expect from our teams. This acquisition adds BLP’s Indianapolis-based office to TiER1’s network of national offices.

Founded in 2002, TiER1 Performance is an employee-owned consulting firm that activates strategies through people. As a Certified B Corporation, TiER1 consults, designs, and builds people-centered business solutions that deliver meaningful, long-term success. TiER1 is a nationally recognized company that has helped over 300 of the world’s most successful corporate and government organizations.
