Deloitte, the business advisory firm, is to acquire ReportSource, the UK’s leading business performance and information management consultancy.
The deal will see 66 people join Deloitte’s 2,500 strong UK Consulting practice, with Ian Harrison, the managing director of ReportSource, joining Deloitte as a partner.
David Owen, managing director for Consulting at Deloitte UK, commented: “Many UK businesses and organisations have invested significant time and money implementing new IT systems in recent years. Business leaders now want to maximise the benefit of this investment by extracting better, more insightful management information. ReportSource is a leader in providing the expertise to help organisations achieve this goal.
“We are delighted to welcome the ReportSource team into the business systems arm of our Consulting practice. The quality, experience and specialist skills they bring complement our existing technology advisory and technology execution expertise, and add a considerable new string to Deloitte’s bow. We are now proud to have the UK’s largest and best equipped business performance and information management team.
Ian Harrison, managing director of ReportSource, commented: “Having developed the UK’s most respected and largest niche performance management practice, Deloitte was the only logical home for ReportSource. In joining Deloitte we are able to put our skills and experience to work, in the service of our clients, by ensuring that our staff work alongside the world’s most sought-after talent, drawn by Deloitte’s eminence, culture and diversity. I am very proud of what ReportSource has achieved and delighted to have joined Deloitte.”
