ATLANTA, GA, February 04, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Flex HR carried out another successful Merger and Acquisition by completing ABB Financial Group, Inc. (ABB), parent company of Affinity Bank, merging with Covington, GA-based Newton Federal Bank. Their specialized HR team of M&A experts has been working in the background since the preliminary announcement of the merger in August to warrant a seamless transition. HR professionals play a fundamental role to both sides of the merger & acquisition by facilitating and integrating the process to strategically plan for any legal issues that may arise, and then implement the growth strategy of the new endeavor.

According to The Covington News, “[this] makes one of the 10 largest Georgia-based banks, by deposits, to have headquarters in metro Atlanta.” Moving forward Affinity Bank will operate as a division of Newton Federal bank, with Ed Cooney as the CEO, and headquarters remaining in Covington. Other locations include the Atlanta area, Alpharetta and Cumming. Management is working hard to ensure all current customers are aware of any minimal and smooth changes and that their customer service is their number one priority.

Often times when a company is about to undergo a merger & acquisition it’s necessary to have a human resources audit and due diligence review. This identifies any weak points and risks that could put the company’s human capital in danger. Flex HR works with companies to create custom, systematical plans to reduce risk and build value, giving businesses the best returns possible.

“I founded Flex HR in 2001 by asking ‘What keeps business owners up at night?’ In brief, the answer is most companies don’t receive the quality of HR service that they should.”
— CEO and Founder, Jim Cichanski
