EY acquires digital engineering consultancy Digital Detox

Digital Detox will support EY clients across four sectors - health wellness and sciences, real estate hospitality and construction and TMT

EY has announced the acquisition of Digital Detox Ventures Limited (Digital Detox), a UK-based digital engineering consultancy, to help further build EY digital engineering capabilities.

Digital Detox is a digital engineering consultancy specialising in custom software development for digital applications, predominantly focused on the health wellness and sciences, real estate hospitality and construction, and technology, media and telecoms (TMT) sectors.

Founded in 2004, the company employs 33 people and is headquartered in Brixton, London, and the acquisition will complement EY’s existing Technology Transformation Teams, including EY Seren.

Digital Detox follows the recent acquisitions of AgilityWorks, Frank Hirth, Pythagoras Communications, Seaton Partners, Lane4, PeakEPM and most recently Blackdot.

Benoit Laclau, EY managing partner for Consulting in UK and Ireland, said: “This is a really exciting acquisition for EY Professional Services Limited and will support the growth of the EY technology consulting services, bringing additional capabilities and skills.”

Alison Kay, EY managing partner for Client Services in UK and Ireland, added: “The acquisition will bring a range of new capabilities and skills to support EY clients across four important sectors – health wellness and sciences, real estate hospitality and construction and TMT.

“It will strengthen EY’s thriving consulting services and will support EY teams’ growth in the UK and Ireland.”

Donovan Justice, CEO of Digital Detox, said: “Digital Detox joining together with the EY organisation will give us the opportunity to apply our collective skills to a range of clients around the world. Working collaboratively with the EY teams, we’ll be able to accelerate our growth and work with clients on their transformation journeys.”

In April, EY unveiled plans to double the size of its UK and Ireland Consulting services over the next four years, backed by £75m of investment. This is in addition to the £95m that has already been invested in EY Consulting services since 2020.
