Deloitte expands digital offering with Edinburgh acquisition

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 | BUSINESS SALE

The professional services firm Deloitte has expanded its digital offering in Scotland with the purchase of Edinburgh-based design consultancy Market Gravity.

The acquisition adds to Deloitte's portfolio which currently includes three other offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

Last year, the company set up Digital Studio – a service that allows organisations to rapidly prototype new products and services.

Gareth Edwards, Head of Deloitte Digital, Edinburgh, said: “Expanding our digital team and capabilities is a real focus for the firm, as we look to help our clients develop new services that will help them lead the way in their respective industries.”

“The acquisition of Market Gravity was a logical next step. It has operations in London, New York, Toronto, and Edinburgh and has worked with some of the world’s leading brands in a variety of sectors.”

“The team in Edinburgh complement and enhance the team we have at Deloitte, and we’d even worked with them before on a number of different projects. Combined, we’ll be able to help our clients re-invent their businesses for the future,” adds Gareth.

Deloitte, which employs around 600 people, has plans to expand even further in the months ahead. This deal marks the beginning of the business's evolution in the city and beyond as demand for these kinds of services continues to grow.
