EY is pleased to announce the acquisition of Greenwich Consulting, a move that will consolidate its service range worldwide notably in growth strategy, marketing, digital and data-analysis. The 130 Greenwich Consulting employees will now be working with EY Advisory’s teams (30,000 worldwide) to strengthen EY’s strategy, customer and innovation capabilities in helping clients transform their businesses. This acquisition is part of EY’s global growth strategy.

Of particular relevance to EY Africa is the integration of part of Greenwich’s telecommunications industry team into its Africa firm. This will contribute significantly to the solutions and expertise EY offers in this important sector.

Greenwich Consulting specialises in strategy consulting and has developed unique skills in the fields of marketing, distribution, client relationships, digital transformation, data analysis and growth strategies.

Ajen Sita, CEO for EY, Africa says, "On behalf of the Africa region, I would like to warmly welcome the people from Greenwich Consulting to the EY family. We know that the success of our business is built on having the best people who deliver exceptional services and solutions to our clients.”
