A.T. Kearney Acquires Cervello

Complementary expertise and company cultures will drive major value-add for clients

A.T. Kearney, a leading global management consulting firm, has acquired Cervello, an elite business analytics and data management consultancy. Operating as “Cervello, an A.T. Kearney company,” Cervello’s team of renowned data engineers, data scientists, and developers will work closely with A.T. Kearney client service teams worldwide to power client performance improvement and transformation programs with expert technology consulting, agile analytics, and data-driven insights.

“Winning with data, that is what it’s all about. Cervello’s deep, hands-on knowledge of big data, cloud, and data platforms will help us jointly develop more robust tools and customized solutions for our clients’ most difficult problems,” said Alex Liu, managing partner and chairman of A.T. Kearney. “It will also be mission-critical for us to leverage Cervello’s proven ability to develop “leave-behind” solutions and managed services that sustain value-delivery to our clients long after we complete the assignment.”

Scot MacGillivray, CEO of Cervello, observed: “Cervello is already helping some of the world’s most respected companies to win with data. Joining forces with A.T. Kearney will exponentially increase our business impact to our current and future clients. First, we will dramatically increase our global reach. Second, we see our strengths as blending remarkably well. Our technology expertise will embed seamlessly within A.T. Kearney’s deep industry expertise. Third, our clients see the value and urgency in this combination of strengths. All of us at Cervello are excited to be a driving force in the future growth of A.T. Kearney, and in the success of the firm’s clients around the world.”
