KPMG Australia has acquired the UX, web and mobile app technology firm, Love Agency, which specialises in building solutions for enterprise and government clients.
Announcing the deal today, KPMG Australia CEO, Gary Wingrove said: “Love Agency has been a pioneering digital business for over 10 years, and we are excited to be welcoming them to KPMG.
“The addition of Love Agency’s capabilities will provide greater scale for our fast-growing KPMG Digital Delta business and further enhance our market position as a global leader in delivering true enterprise-wide digital transformation.”
The 40-strong Love Agency team will combine with KPMG’s specialists in digital strategy, artificial intelligence, cognitive and machine learning, internet of things, and data, analytics and modelling.
Head of management consulting for KPMG, Ian Hancock (featured image, right), explained: “We are increasingly being asked to assist our clients to re-imagine and re-invent themselves.
“This often means supporting their transformation into world-class digital enterprises using advanced technologies, data and human insights.
“Bringing Love Agency into KPMG Digital Delta means we are better able to deliver end-to-end digital transformation solutions that seamlessly connect our clients’ front, middle and back offices.”
Love Agency was founded in 2008 by entrepreneurs CEO Danny Housseas (featured image, left), and COO Arthur Gougoustamos to combine cutting-edge approaches to User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) with enterprise technologies.
The pair, now KPMG Partners, rapidly built a team of expert technologists and designers, including solution architects, UX/UI specialists and mobile developers.
Over the past year, Love Agency has collaborated with KPMG to co-deliver successful client projects, allowing each business to trial what will now be a fulltime relationship.
Danny Housseas said: “Having spent the last decade researching and delivering customer-centric products in highly scalable enterprise environments we are delighted to embark on the next phase of our journey.
“As part of KPMG, we’ll be able to bring together a broader set of digital capabilities, work with some of the smartest minds in the business and at a larger scale than previously possible.
“This will ensure our clients have the necessary support to achieve their transformation goals.”
