Deloitte Canada acquires technology consulting firm The Working Group


Deloitte is acquiring The Working Group, a Toronto-based digital consultancy that brings software design expertise and some blue-chip clients to the multinational accounting and consulting firm.

Founded in 2002, TWG develops software products for its corporate clients, which include RBC RY-T, Sun Life Financial SLF-T, Wealthsimple and Audi. The deal is expected to close in early March. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“We’re excited to welcome not only TWG but some of their new clients into our business,” said Deloitte partner Bevin Arnason, who leads Deloitte Digital in Canada. Deloitte Digital, which has about 1,000 employees in Canada, assists clients with digital strategy and design.

TWG’s team of more than 150 people will be integrated into Deloitte Digital, but they will remain in their current office in downtown Toronto. TWG executive chair Andres Aquino and chief executive officer Chris Eben will become partners at Deloitte.

Ms. Arnason said Deloitte has worked with TWG in the past on client projects, and was impressed by the talent at the company.
