PwC has completed the acquisition of Olivehorse Consulting Services. The Big Four firm first announced its intent to purchase the supply chain management consultancy in December.

An SAP Gold Partner with supply chain management recognised expertise accreditations, Olivehorse provides end-to-end supply chain planning and management solutions to clients across SAP, Anaplan and Kinaxis.

Founded in 2012, the firm has been in keen demand in recent years – with geo-political tensions, climate change and the global pandemic having disrupted supply chains around the world.

When PwC announced it would be moving to integrate Olivehorse into its supply chain offering, it was motivated by that same spike in demand. Strengthening PwC’s own prominent supply chain capability, the deal brings a further 60 members of staff into PwC’s supply chain practice.

From the other side, meanwhile, Olivehorse hopes the move will help it scale, to access new opportunities around the world, due to PwC’s international reach.

Fred Akuffo, Managing Director of Olivehorse, commented, “I am delighted to complete this deal and, along with all of Olivehorse, become part of PwC, a global network with amazing people and resources, which will help us to bring greater value to our clients.”

“We are excited and energised by the prospect of building a new future for our people, for PwC and for all of our clients. I am deeply proud of all of the work Olivehorse delivered and see this as the next phase in our journey.”

The challenges facing the UK and global economies in the field of supply, scarcity and disruption will see companies turn to innovative and technology enabled solutions to bolster their supply chains. PwC particularly hopes the addition of Coventry based Olivehorse will help to that end.

Consulting Supply Chain and Operations Leader at PwC, Alistair Kett, noted, “We know that this is a market which is hugely important to our clients and to the people they serve and we are proud to have enhanced the value that we can bring. As the world recovers from the global pandemic we know that issues of supply, scarcity and disruption will require new, innovative and technology driven solutions. Our team is well positioned to help solve these challenges.”
