IT and business processing services provider CGI Group Inc. announced Nov. 4 it has acquired Boston-based Collaborative Consulting, through its wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, CGI Technologies and Solutions Inc.
“In line with our strategy and fiscal 2017 business plan, the combination with Collaborative will have a significant positive impact on our U.S. northeast operations, while acting as a catalyst for future organic growth for the overall U.S. business, contributing to both our high-end consulting offerings while adding to our onshore delivery options,” CGI President of U.S. Operations Dave Henderson said.
“This combination is consistent with CGI’s well-articulated build and buy strategy to invest in both transformational and niche acquisitions that will spur future growth and expand coverage in targeted metro markets,” CGI President and CEO George Schindler said. “Collaborative fits this bill as it brings both unique local relationships and deep industry experience to the CGI global platform.”
Collaborative will enhance and accelerate CGI’s position as a provider of digital transformation services to meet growing demand, particularly benefiting the commercial sector.
