About the Role

Our Digital Transformation Practice helps corporates, private equity firms and other constituencies build long term competitive advantage, accelerate revenue growth and drive investment valuations while optimizing cost. We bring together lean, fast-moving teams of expert technologists, digital specialists and data scientists to advise our clients on their digital transformation agendas and transaction needs.

We work with clients to understand the impact of rapidly evolving digital paradigms and emerging technologies on the future of their business, translating that into an executable strategy and blueprint that combines business model innovation, customer experience strategy, modern technology and data architectures with a rigorous focus on planning and execution.  We assist clients on their high stakes transactions needs ranging from acquisition and divestment strategy to technology and digital due diligence, merger and acquisition (M&A) integration planning and carve outs.
