Deloitte takes steps to enhance its abilities in delivering cloud-based solutions within the Oil and Gas sector
Toronto, June 5, 2018 – Deloitte is acquiring a leading technology consulting firm, Third Wave Consulting Inc. to better help clients and capitalize on opportunities within the energy sector. Third Wave, headquartered in Halifax, focuses on providing quick-to-outcome, high-value, business solutions on the market-leading cloud-based platform from Salesforce. The Third Wave team in each of their current Halifax, Calgary and Houston locations will join existing Deloitte practices and operate under the Deloitte Digital brand in each place.
“We’ve been crossing paths and looking to collaborate with Third Wave since 2015,” said Tony Krajewski, Customer and Marketing Partner, at Deloitte Digital. ”Its strong brand and reputation with its clients and the SF community in Canada is well-known. We are very excited about taking a big step towards servicing our clients with new talent, Intellectual Property and experience, especially in the markets where both Third Wave and Deloitte are strong today in Eastern Canada and Calgary.”
“Deloitte will welcome Third Wave’s North American operations,” said Tim Christmann, Managing Partner, Consulting at Deloitte Canada. “The connections from Third Wave will help drive superior growth from priority clients in the energy sector and help us forge new relationships within the sector.”
Deloitte will also gain three new leaders. Steve Davies, the founder and co-owner of Third Wave Consulting Inc., will join the firm as the Atlantic Canada Salesforce leader while Alex Campbell and George Heal will join as leaders focused on the Oil and Gas sector.
“We’re excited to join a global company like Deloitte,” Davies said. “Not only will we be able to provide our services in SF and Oil and Gas, but we’ll be able to better serve our clients by having access to Deloitte’s extensive service offerings and creating a one-stop shop.”
“This isn’t just about cracking into the energy sector, this also helps us significantly expand our Deloitte Digital capability in Atlantic Canada,” said Mat Harris, Regional Marketplace Partner, Atlantic Canada. “We have many of our clients in the region eager to consider and undertake digital transformations and with Third Wave’s delivery centre in Halifax, it allows us to grow and provide new and exciting services from the region.”
