Accenture acquires Australian consulting firm AlphaBeta

Global consultancy and outsourcing firm Accenture has acquired AlphaBeta Advisors, a boutique strategy consulting firm with around 35 consultants in Sydney, Melbourne, and Canberra.

Founded in 2015, AlphaBeta Advisors has a presence in the three Australian cities, and employs approximately 35 people with backgrounds in data analytics, economics, and public policy. The integration will see AlphaBeta Advisors become part of Accenture Strategy, the firm’s division focused on strategic and management consulting services.

The move comes within two weeks of another acquisition for Accenture in Australia, that of supply chain IT consultancy Icon Integration. The full team of AlphaBeta Advisors will transfer to Accenture, and includes a raft of former McKinsey & Company and Boston Consulting Group consultants.
