EY acquires UK technology business

The firm purchased Pythagoras Communications Holdings Limited, which provides professional services and solutions using technology platforms

EY has announced its acquisition of Pythagoras Communications Holdings Limited, a leading UK technology business which provides professional services and solutions using technology platforms.

Currently, Pythagoras has three offices based in Maidenhead, Solihull and London, and employs approximately 118 people.

This acquisition represents EY’s goal to increase the range of technology services the organisation provides to clients, bringing additional capabilities.

Benoit Laclau, EY’s managing partner for consulting in the UK and Ireland, said: “The acquisition of Pythagoras enables EY teams to not only advise clients on strategy but also helps them design and provide advanced Microsoft technologies.

“At a time when many companies are having to adapt and transform to changing customer behaviours, these new capabilities will help support EY clients and develop EY consulting services.”

Alison Kay, managing partner for client services at EY UK and Ireland, said: “Pythagoras brings new skills and capabilities to support EY clients across a range of different sectors.

“The acquisition is part of the wider EY growth strategy in the UK and Ireland and will significantly enhance EY tech capabilities. In the last 18 months the acquisitions of AgilityWorks and Frank Hirth have helped EY teams meet the changing needs and demands of clients.”
