“Deltek has extensive knowledge of consulting, which is apparent in how it designs its solutions,” said Lars Peter Soybe, COWI CEO. “We have found the long-term strategic match we were looking for and we know that Deltek will continue to develop strong solutions for our type of business.”
The firm will be implemented in COWI’s Denmark, Swedish and Norway offices. It previously increased its marketability to professional firms by acquiring Maconomy, a consulting firm based in Denmark, in 2010.
“With this deal COWI will benefit from our accumulated knowledge of the consulting industry, enabling the company to run its projects more smoothly and more profitably,” said Executive VP and General Manager of Deltek’s Professional Services business unit Hugo Dorph.
Both companies have a huge presence in the consulting industry. Deltek has worked with 14,000 organizations in 80 countries, focusing on consulting with professional firms and government agencies. COWI’s made a name for itself with its 6,000 employees in 26 countries and by focusing its consulting on local markets.
