Deloitte Consulting buys Indicia Talent & Performance

09 September 2015

Deloitte has acquired Indicia Talent & Performance. “With the takeover of the activities of Indicia Talent & Performance, Deloitte strengthens its market position in the area of HR Cloud services,” explains Mario van Vliet, Managing Partner of Deloitte's Netherlands-based Consulting practice. Indicia Talent & Performance is an advisory specialised in SAP/SuccessFactors.

The year 2015 is seeing HR transformations, developments around (HR-) cloud and talent management more and more often central to the strategic agenda of HR departments. Joining the bandwagon is accountancy and consulting firm Deloitte that earlier this year decided to acquire HR consultancy firm FCTB (subsidiary of Indicia). The acquisition saw Deloitte strengthen its position in the area of human resources consulting, talent management and HR-cloud services. The deal involved the move of the employees, associates and the on-going projects of FCTB’s Amsterdam office to Deloitte.

In line with market developments, Deloitte expects services in the areas of HR Transformations, Talent Management and HR Cloud continue to grow over the coming years. “We see a growing demand for this type of service and associated professionals. We are uniquely able to deliver end-to-end solutions, from HR (Transformation) strategy to implementation,” says Van Vliet, adding: “This is a positive step for FCTB and Deloitte, but also for our clients whom we can better serve through this acquisition.”

Following the successful acquisition of FCTB, Deloitte recently decided to take things a step bigger, expanding its footprint within the HR domain even further – through the full acquisition of the office and activities of Indicia Talent & Performance. This deal also sees the employees, relationships and current assignments integrated within Deloitte. Frans Dagelet, the former Managing Director of Indicia Talent & Performance, will, following the completed transaction, take a role of Director at Deloitte Consulting.

Van Vliet comments: “With the acquisition of the activities of Indicia Talent & Performance, Deloitte’s leading market position in the field of HR Cloud Services and SAP/SuccessFactors is further strengthened.” Carlo Korssen, CEO of Indicia, ads: “Indicia Talent & Performance has built itself a formidable market position and has taken home several awards. We are proud of the fact that Deloitte would like to acquire this business off us and develop it further.”

Human Capital - Leadership
Last week Deloitte's Human Capital practice in the UK also rounded off an acquisition. Kaisen Consulting, a boutique leadership consultancy with offices in the UK and US, has joined the Big Four's ranks and will serve as the base for Deloitte's new Leadership service offering.

SQW Group purchases property-based regeneration consultancy

19 April 2019

UK consulting firm SQW Group has completed its first acquisition since it completed a management buyout in January 2019. BBP Regeneration joins the company having collaborated with SQW for more than 20 years.

Established in 1983, SQW Group now operates all over the world. Comprising SQW, Oxford Innovation, Oxford Innovation Services – one of the UK’s leading innovation centre operators – and Oxford Investment Opportunities Network, the organisation’s origins can be traced to Britain’s two ancient university cities: Oxford, through Oxford Trust founders, Martin and Audrey Wood, and Cambridge, through SQW’s work in producing The Cambridge Phenomenon.

The consultancy specialises in public policy, working with entities from the public, private and voluntary sectors to research, develop, implement and evaluate social and economic development interventions. It now employs over 250 people across regional offices in London, Oxford and Edinburgh, and provides business support to over 4,000 entrepreneurs and small businesses each year. At the start of 2019, SQW secured its independence in a management buyout, advised on by M&A experts from Liberty Corporate Finance and Penningtons Manches.

SQW Group purchases property-based regeneration consultancy

SQW has strengthened its position as a provider of services across the business spectrum with the acquisition of BBP Regeneration. Founded in 1994, the consulting firm specialises in land and property-based regeneration and growth schemes, and is a leading social and economic development consultancy. 

The two firms first worked together over 20 years ago, when SQW and BBP collaborated to develop the first Regional Economic Strategy for the South East. More recently, they developed an economic strategy for Thanet and are now working together in locations stretching from Cwmbran via Oxfordshire to London.

With the addition of BBP, SQW can now provide an integrated advisory service for organisations developing property schemes which deliver economic benefit to their local area. By joining SQW, meanwhile, BBP hopes to further enhance its ability to support clients in delivering property and place-making ambitions. 

Speaking about the deal, SQW CEO David Crichton-Miller commented, “The UK more than ever needs solutions to the challenges of places – of high streets under threat, of meeting housing delivery targets, and of both economically over-successful and economically challenged towns and cities – and the combination of SQW and BBP is uniquely suited to developing those solutions. [This deal] brings together critical and complementary services relating to places to serve our clients with leading edge and practical advice.”

Andy Smith, Director of BBP Regeneration, added, “SQW shares with BBP the same values of seeking to provide outstanding, practical, real world advice that helps get buildings built and places developed.  We greatly look forward to the opportunities that come from joining our two organisations together.”
