Delaware Consulting acquires Across Technology

Significant expansion of strategic services and communications

Kortrijk/Zwijnaarde, 6 October 2015  – Delaware Consulting and Across Technology have reached an agreement under which Delaware Consulting will acquire all shares of Across Technology. This merger will result in a considerable expansion of the expertise and strong position of both parties in the market.

Across Technology was established by technology disruption guru Peter Hinssen in 2009. The company’s consultancy activities are primarily aimed at establishing a sustainable connection between employees, technologies and the client’s mission. Across Technology’s focus is on advising the CEO and key supportive roles, such as the CIO, HR Manager and Chief Marketing Officer. Last year, Across Technology acquired Engenia Consulting to get a stronger foothold in the field of HR. Across Technology is organized into two departments, Transformation and Communications, and has 15 employees. The services offered cover strategic support, integrated transformation management, change management, content marketing and internal (change) communication.

Win-win

“This partnership allows us to use our strategic services to reach even more members of the C-suite,” says Ludo Van den Kerckhove, managing partner at Across Technology and Head of the Transformation team. “At the same time, the methodologies we developed for HR and IT can now be implemented by Delaware Consulting in other domains as well.” 

“Our content marketing services significantly enhance the performance of Delaware Digital,” adds José Delameilleure, managing partner at Across Technology and Head of Communications. “And our change communication services dovetail perfectly with the implementation projects of Delaware Consulting.”

“A strong complementarity exists between Across Technology and Delaware Consulting,” says Geert Scheipers, partner at Delaware Consulting. “This reinforces our existing services in the field of strategic consulting and digital transformation. Our new colleagues are presented with solid opportunities for growth on a more international platform. One of the keywords we use is ‘recombination’, which means strengthening our services by incorporating additional expertise. The merger proved to be the perfect next step.”

The acquisition takes effect immediately and all staff members of Across Technology will be retained by Delaware Consulting. 

Across co-founder Peter Hinssen will serve as an Independent Director on the Board of Directors of Delaware Consulting International.
