The combined Chaucer Group will have c.£35m of revenue and more than 250 consultants across the UK, Europe and North America.
Christopher Laslett, CEO of Chaucer, commented:
“I am delighted to welcome Virtrium to the Chaucer family. Together we are ideally suited to help transform how our clients think, work and change to truly deliver value from digital technologies and data. I’d also like to thank GCP for their hands-on support in structuring and executing the deal”.
