KPMG acquires Love Agency to strengthen digital services

The professional services firm adds digital agency and looks to boost enterprise UX and UI solutions in its digital business

KPMG Australia has acquired UX, web and mobile app technology firm, Love Agency, which specialises in building solutions for enterprise and government clients. The acquisition will boost KPMG’s digital strategy, AI, machine learning, IoT, data and analytics services as a part of KPMG'a digital trasnformation business, Digital Delta. 

KPMG said it was finding more businesses want to transform into digital enterprises using advanced technologies, data and human insights, and it made sense to boost their digital services portfolio to assist in all parts of that journey.

This is just the latest in a raft of acquisitions for KPMG, who also added customer experience innovation consultancy, UDKU, to its ranks last year, along with the appointment of former managing partner and chief strategy officer of Publicis Worldwide (India), Sudeep Gohil, as head of brand strategy as part of the Customer, Brand and Marketing Advisory (CBMA) business. Jarther Taylor, former GM of marketing at Telstra, has also been appointed marketing director of KPMG nationally as of last month.

“Bringing Love Agency into KPMG Digital Delta means we are better able to deliver end-to-end digital transformation solutions that seamlessly connect our clients’ front, middle and back offices,” said Ian Hancock, head of management consulting, KPMG.

KPMG Australia CEO, Gary Wingrove, said Love Agency has been a pioneering digital business for over 10 years.

"We are excited to be welcoming them to KPMG. The addition of Love Agency’s capabilities will provide greater scale for our fast-growing KPMG Digital Delta business and further enhance our market position as a global leader in delivering true enterprise-wide digital transformation,” he said. 

Love Agency was founded in 2008 by Danny Housseas, CEO, and Arthur Gougoustamos, COO, who now become KPMG partners, to combine cutting-edge approaches to user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) with enterprise technologies.

“Having spent the last decade researching and delivering customer-centric products in highly scalable enterprise environments we are delighted to embark on the next phase of our journey. As part of KPMG, we’ll be able to bring together a broader set of digital capabilities, work with some of the smartest minds in the business and at a larger scale than previously possible. This will ensure our clients have the necessary support to achieve their transformation goals,” said Housseas.

Why conflict can be good for your brand

Conflict is essentially a clash. When between two people, it’s just about always a clash of views or opinions. And when it comes to this type of conflict, more than the misaligned views themselves, what we typically hate the most is our physiological response.
