ButcherJoseph & Co. advised DAI Global, LLC (“DAI” or the “Company”) on the acquisition of Human Dynamics, a leading provider of development aid and consulting services to the European Union on behalf of emerging and developing economies globally. Human Dynamics is headquartered in Vienna, Austria.  

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Human Dynamics,” said DAI President and CEO Jim Boomgard. “This combination makes us the leading EuropeAid contractor and marks a critical step forward in DAI’s strategy to become the world’s leading global development company.” 

ButcherJoseph Managing Partner Keith Butcher said, “Human Dynamics is a highly complementary acquisition for DAI, and we’re confident the combined entity offers enhanced capabilities and greater value to the European development community.”

The combined company now employs almost 100 corporate staff in its European business, overseeing a portfolio of more than 60 projects in dozens of countries worldwide from offices in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Turkey.
