KPMG said on Thursday it has acquired The Arnold Group LLC, a consultancy firm headquartered in Seattle that has provided go-to-market strategy development for clients in the technology sector the last 20 years.
As part of the transaction, all Arnold Group team members joined the Big Four firm when the acquisition closed on Jan. 1. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“Having The Arnold Group join KPMG is directly aligned with our overall growth strategy and vision for the future, a perfect fit for where our firm is headed. We are now even better positioned to devise and deliver innovative and holistic transformation programs for our clients through our shared breadth of knowledge and expertise in growth-oriented strategy, end-to-end commercialization, and performance transformation,” said Carl Carande, vice chair of advisory at KPMG. “For both the tech industry and those aspiring to grow their tech-oriented business, KPMG can provide an integrated team to support go-to-market strategy, design, and execution uniquely aligned with today’s C-suite agenda.”
KPMG said Arnold Group complements its existing services by bringing strategic capabilities in the commercial sales and revenue enhancement areas.
“This is an exciting opportunity to scale our business for our people, our clients, and the markets we serve,” said Arnold Group co-founder Carl Albrecht. “Clients of both The Arnold Group and KPMG will benefit from our collective strengths—highly qualified professionals with unique expertise, increased delivery capacity, and a more comprehensive transformation offering. We look forward to continuing our commitment to service excellence as part of the KPMG team.”
