Seisma Group has announced its acquisition of New Zealand IT professional services company Fronde.
Both companies will continue servicing clients across New Zealand and Australia, with a forward focus on growing the Seisma Group’s presence in New Zealand.
Seisma says the acquisition will allow for a wider breadth of services and more opportunities to service government, utility and enterprise clients across the New Zealand marketplace.
CEO of Seisma, Robert Hogeland, says that part of Seisma’s growth objective has always been to secure a strategic investment to strengthen its presence in New Zealand.
“This acquisition will allow our combined group opportunities to be part of a network of IT professionals who can collaborate on projects across expanding geographies and capability offerings,” says Robert. “Fronde’s exceptional management team, workforce and core capabilities are highly complementary to Seisma’s. They will increase our presence in New Zealand from a group of 14 to more than 100 consultants.”
Seisma augments the existing Fronde capabilities with a team of 400 consultants across Strategy, Engineering, Cloud, Salesforce and Delivery services.
Fronde CEO Jason Delamore says: “With 30 years of history in the IT services market, it was important to find the right organisation interested in partnering with or acquiring Fronde. The strategic fit had to be right for our long-standing shareholders and the combined strength
and capabilities of both companies needed to create long-term value for our people and our customers. It became quickly apparent that the Seisma + Fronde combination was the best opportunity to realise that value and we are all excited about the acquisition potential.”
Seisma is excited at the prospect of increasing the breadth of services in New Zealand, providing opportunities for consultants and customers on both sides of the Tasman.
