It’s a mistake to assume “that everybody on the leadership team is critical to the future success of the acquisition and to deal value,” cautions integration expert Steven Steckler, in this video interview shot at ACG Boston Dealsource Select. Steckler serves as the head of transformation management and corporate HR M&A integration at EMD Millipore, which is on track to close a $17 billion deal to acquire Sigma-Aldrich Corp. this summer. EMD was acquired itself by global pharmaceutical and chemical company Merck, KGaA in 2010.
