Over the course of 2023, the Acquired Knowledge team told stories of successful acquisitions, operational excellence, and leadership from across Volaris Group. As we close out the year, we’re taking a look back at some of our most popular articles and videos.
Our most read stories of the year were the 2022 year-end acquisition summary and the mid-year 2023 acquisition update, where we profile newly acquired companies and discuss any new geographies or vertical markets that we’ve entered during that period. We release these twice a year, so stay tuned for the full 2023 acquisition wrap up in early January 2024!
