Atlanta, GA, May 8, 2012 – CHILDS Advisory Partners (“CHILDS”) served as the exclusive financial advisor to Aggressor, LLC (“Aggressor”), in its recent sale to Deloitte Consulting LLP ("Deloitte Consulting").
Aggressor was a rapidly-growing, technology consulting firm focused on implementing Workday, the leader in cloud-based SaaS HR and Finance solutions. With a sole focus on Workday and a highly-disciplined delivery approach, Aggressor quickly established itself as Workday’s leading implementation and integration partner, having the largest number of Workday-certified consultants and involvement with over one-third of Workday’s total customer base.
With this acquisition, Deloitte Consulting is now the leading Workday consulting practice with expanded global reach and deeper HR transformation capabilities. Former Aggressor clients will benefit from the additional service and strategic capabilities of Deloitte Consulting’s human capital practice when combining Workday with their HR transformation initiatives.
Kevin Elmore, a founder and Managing Partner of Aggressor, said, “The in-depth HR sector knowledge of Deloitte Consulting’s human capital practice combined with the demonstrated delivery capabilities and talent of Aggressor will create a formidable competitor in the Workday space. The CHILDS team’s sector knowledge and relationships were crucial to the successful completion of this transaction.”
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Aggressor, recently acquired by Deloitte Consulting, was a business and technology consulting firm that helped clients tackle new markets, implement key technologies, reduce costs, and improve operations. The company was a recognized leader in the Workday community given its track record of success, innovation, and experience working with Fortune 1000 and mid-sized organizations. Aggressor provided thought leadership and innovation to a rapidly growing group of Workday customers.
