Hitachi Consulting has acquired London-based business and IT consultancy Impact Plus for an undisclosed sum.
Impact Plus, which specialises in the public sector and financial services, offers business and IT consulting services in the areas of customer strategy, sales effectiveness, operational performance, technology exploitation, regulation and compliance and mergers and acquisitions.
David Bailey, joint managing director of Impact Plus, said: “Joining with Hitachi Consulting allows us both to offer our existing clients greater capacity and a richer blend of capabilities and to extend our services to a broader marketplace. Through Hitachi Consulting’s strength in both the United States and in Asia, we can now serve better the global needs of our clients.”
Michael Travis, chief executive of Hitachi Consulting, said: “Now that our business here in the UK is established, adding the proven capabilities of Impact Plus is the next critical step in our growth plan. The two companies are well aligned in terms of targeted industries and our portfolios of consulting capabilities are very complementary. There is also a strong cultural fit between the two companies.”
