RIA Advisory, a leading revenue management solutions provider, and TMG Consulting (“TMG”), a top advisory and professional services firm to the utilities market, today announced a merger to create an industry-leading provider of revenue management solutions for clients across the financial services, healthcare payers, utilities, and public sector verticals.
Founded in late 2016, RIA Advisory has grown into a global leader in revenue management solutions by combining scalable Oracle platforms, proprietary IP, institutional knowledge of the revenue management space, and deep domain expertise across multiple industries. In August 2022, RIA Advisory partnered with Avance Investment Management (“Avance”), a private equity firm based in New York and Miami, to accelerate its growth trajectory.
The merger with TMG is expected to enhance RIA Advisory's professional services and advisory capabilities and expand into the growing utilities market. With a combined workforce of over 700 professionals across the globe, the combined company will have a strong presence in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., India, the Philippines, and Australia. The combined company will leverage its deep domain expertise and technology capabilities to deliver industry-specific solutions that optimize revenue, improve customer experience, and deliver operational efficiencies.
“We are thrilled to announce this merger, which will provide our clients with the most innovative and comprehensive revenue management solutions available to the market today,” said Saket Pabby, CEO of RIA Advisory. “Combining the strengths of RIA Advisory and TMG will result in a more comprehensive array of product and service offerings for our clients. We are excited to bring together two teams of highly skilled professionals with shared values and a complementary culture to continue driving innovation and delivering exceptional value to clients.”
“RIA Advisory, with its industry-leading products and revenue management solutions, is the perfect partner for TMG’s leading Oracle practice and consultancy to continue supporting digital transformation of our utilities customers,” said Mario Bauer, CEO of TMG. “We believe that this merger will bring significant value to our clients and accelerate growth for the combined company.”
“The combination of RIA and TMG creates a billing and revenue management solutions provider with leading positions in the financial services, healthcare payors, and utilities end markets,” said John Civantos, Senior Partner of Avance. “We are proud to partner with both management teams to make this exciting opportunity a reality.”
