AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS AND HELSINKI, FINLAND -- (Marketwired) -- May 26, 2015 -- Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint (www.bearingpoint.com) has acquired Magenta Advisory (www.magentaadvisory.com), the leading independent management consultancy for digitalization of businesses in the Nordics. Magenta Advisory helps organizations create digital advantage and works with clients ranging from global multinationals to top local companies across a spectrum of industries, such as finance, high tech, telecommunication, media and retail. With this acquisition, BearingPoint expands its offerings in the area of digital transformation and accelerates growth in the Nordic region.

"Digital is one of the most important elements of our firm-wide strategy that goes beyond the typical boundaries of industries, service lines, and countries. The acquisition of Magenta Advisory strengthens our digital transformation capabilities and furthers our aim of making our clients more competitive and better positioned for the future. We are very excited about the growth opportunities this new acquisition opens up for us in the Nordics and firm-wide," says Peter Mockler, Managing Partner BearingPoint.

"Magenta's capabilities and service offerings match perfectly with the needs of our clients in the Nordics. Moreover, we share the same culture of an entrepreneurial, holistic mindset and are trusted advisors for our clients. Together we look forward to becoming the number one digital transformation consultancy in the Nordics," says Patrick Palmgren, Regional Leader for the Nordics at BearingPoint.

"For Magenta Advisory, this is a logical next step in continuing our rapid growth as the leading independent digitalization management consultancy in the Nordics," says Markus Huttunen, Managing Director of Magenta Advisory. "Our clients will benefit from even stronger consulting services backed by BearingPoint's strong industry and technology expertise as well as scale in delivering digital transformation assignments. This will also bring new professional development opportunities for our consultants in a global environment. The company founders, including myself, are thrilled about this development and are eager to move the business forward!"
