Barbara Bergstrom, the founder of Internationella Engelska Skolan (“IES”) in 1993, has entered into a partnership with the renowned global growth investment firm TA Associates, adding strength to expand internationally. Major investors in TA are leading American universities, pension funds (including those for teachers) and non-profit foundations for science and similar purposes. TA has previous experience in the education sector, mostly at the college level. TA:s activities in Scandinavia are handled by staff in its London, UK office.
“We have searched for school companies to invest in, and have found Internationella Engelska Skolan to be in a class of its own” comments Birker Bahnsen from TA. “We are deeply impressed by what IES has achieved and stands for, and we are committed to maintaining its values and culture, for continued success. We look forward to working together with Mrs. Bergstrom and the management of IES, and contributing to this excellent school company´s international expansion. We are particularly pleased that Mrs. Bergstrom will continue as an active chairman of the company.”
Barbara Bergstrom says that she, at the age of 66, has been planning to find a partner and co-owner that can help the company continue its growth and success in quality education, in a responsible manner. She comments: “TA has expressed a strong commitment to the values and quality in education that characterize Internationella Engelska Skolan. This partnership ensures the continued independence of IES as a school company. With more than 13,000 students this year, over a billion kronor in turnover and the company having doubled in size every three years, we have also grown to a level where added strength on the ownership side becomes valuable.”
Adds Mrs. Bergstrom: “We have built a strong relationship with the professionals at TA and have come to like them and trust their intentions. For Internationella Engelska Skolan, with its Anglo-American cultural bonds and connections and now also opening our first school in England, it is very natural to bring in a partner with ties to London, with experience in education-related companies, and with a large number of investors anchored in education and science at the highest level.
