Two of the fastest growing companies in Europe join forces to create a new digital transformation and technology leader in the European marketplace.
Hunter Macdonald has entered into an agreement to join forces with market-leading Scandinavian IT services firm Netcompany, creating the fastest growing IT services company in Europe.
Founded and headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1999, Netcompany has been delivering high-quality IT solutions to public and private sector clients across Scandinavia while Hunter Macdonald, founded and headquartered in Reading, UK in 2013, has been delivering transformational IT solutions and programmes to many of the world’s largest and most prestigious organisations.
Both companies have impressive track-records of consistent, rapid, growth in their respective markets and their combination, resulting in a highly-skilled workforce of over 1550 technologists, provides a solid base for sustained future growth as well as enabling skills in specialist areas and markets to be leveraged across the company.
Mark Ward, CEO of Hunter Macdonald said “This is a very positive next step in Hunter Macdonald’s evolution. Since launching 4 years ago, we have disrupted the marketplace by proving that IT Programmes and Services can be delivered right first time and in doing so have quickly become the fastest growing IT Services company in the UK. We have been hugely impressed by Netcompany’s achievements over the past 18 years and we look forward to working together to create one of the largest technology companies in Europe.”
André Rogaczewski, CEO of Netcompany, said “We are extremely excited about welcoming Hunter Macdonald into the Netcompany family. They are a fantastic team and have built a great reputation for efficiently delivering complex technology programmes and services. Their culture closely matches ours and they have the same focus on attracting, retaining and developing exceptional technical and leadership talent. This is a transformative deal for Netcompany, it is in-line with our ambitious growth plans and will allow us to deliver ever better value for our clients through our increased capability and scale.”
In January, 2017, Netcompany celebrated the recruitment of employee # 1,000, making Netcompany the first Danish company within 20 years reaching 1,000 employees (Source: Danish Business authority). Today, Netcompany has more than 1,200 employees. Netcompany was founded in 1999 and is headquartered at Grønningen in Copenhagen.
