First Names Group acquires Temmes Management Services


Independent trust, fund and corporate services provider First Names Group has expanded its corporate services offering by acquiring Temmes Management Services.

The firm has also appointed a new group managing director, corporate and institutional services. 
The Temmes deal is First Names Group’s second acquisition this year and its first in the corporate services sector.  The transaction supports its strategy to expand its corporate services into France, Luxembourg, The Netherlands and the US whilst also adding to its existing corporate presence in Switzerland and Ireland.
Established in 1996, Temmes Management Services is a privately owned boutique firm specialising in the implementation and operation of sophisticated, multi-jurisdictional corporate tax structures. It has a team of 32 employees and its primary focus is accounting, corporate secretarial, management and treasury services for privately held companies, private equity firms and publicly held companies, principally stemming from the European and US marketplace.
Armin Kirchner has been appointed as group managing director, corporate and institutional services. Kirchner joins from the TMF Group, where he played an instrumental role in its global expansion. Kirchner has served in numerous senior roles throughout his career with TMF, working as both managing director and regional director throughout Europe before being promoted in 2011 to global director corporate services based in New York where he was a member of TMF Group’s executive committee.
Post integration First Names Group will have a headcount of over 500 ‘First Names’ and operate in 11 countries across the world. 
Founding partner of Temmes, Pieter GC van Tol, says: “We are thrilled by the opportunity to join First Names Group, it is a fantastic organisation with outstanding people that share our passion for superior service. Our clients come first and our team of highly experienced personnel, wide range of services and fixed fee approach have enabled us to distinguish ourselves in the global marketplace. We are all looking forward to the next chapter and becoming part of a larger team.  First Names Group is committed to hiring additional experienced professionals who will facilitate future expansion into further countries.”
