Ernst & Young (EY), one of the largest professional services networks in the world, has announced the acquisition of Digital Detox.
London-headquartered Digital Detox is a digital engineering consultancy specialising in custom software development for digital applications, including for the construction sector.
The acquisition will help enhance EY’s digital engineering capabilities, complementing the existing Technology Transformation Teams including EY Seren, the company said.
Benoit Laclau, Ernst & Young LLP managing partner for Consulting, UK & Ireland, commented: “This is a really exciting acquisition for EY Professional Services Limited and will support the growth of the EY technology consulting services, bringing additional capabilities and skills.
“It demonstrates the EY ambition, commitment, and dedication to supporting new and existing EY clients on their digital transformations.
“We look forward to welcoming the Digital Detox team to the EY organisation at what is an exciting period of ambitious growth and development.”
Donovan Justice, CEO of Digital Detox, said: “Digital Detox joining together with the EY organisation will give us the opportunity to apply our collective skills to a range of clients around the world. Working collaboratively with the EY teams, we’ll be able to accelerate our growth and work with clients on their transformation journeys.”
In April EY unveiled plans to double the size of its UK and Ireland Consulting services over the next four years, backed by £75m of investment. This is in addition to the £95m that have already been invested in EY Consulting services since 2020.
