Eliassen Group, a Reading, MA–based consulting and talent solutions firm, has acquired Ferguson Consulting, an IT consultancy based in the St. Louis area.
Founded in 1993, Ferguson Consulting provides IT contractors for staff augmentation positions at Fortune 500 companies in St. Louis. The firm’s consultants specialize in IT application development, providing expertise from project design through to implementation and support. Ferguson’s IT consultants are analysts, project managers, and developers skilled in .NET and Java stacks who enable clients across industries to outsource turnkey, fixed-cost IT projects and staff up where necessary.
Based in the suburb of Chesterfield, Missouri, Ferguson Consulting has 57 employees listed on LinkedIn.
Eliassen’s acquisition of Ferguson will expand its footprint into St Louis and give the company its 20th US office.
“Ferguson’s deep-rooted history of long-term success in the area is only one part of what makes the organization so appealing to Eliassen,” Dave MacKeen, CEO of Eliassen Group, said. “More importantly, their care and attention to all sides of the business, from employees to clients to consultants, is a principle that Eliassen also embodies and the common force that naturally unites our organizations.”
Eliassen provides management consulting and staffing solutions to companies in a range of industries. The firm’s offerings span technology consulting, agile consulting, creative services, risk management & business optimization, and managed services. Eliassen has more than 700 employees, according to LinkedIn.
“We are at the peak of our success, and it couldn’t be a better time to join the Eliassen Group community,” said Susan Ferguson, president & CEO of Ferguson Consulting. “Not only does Eliassen provide our employees, clients, and consultants an expanded range of opportunities, but they also share the values at the heart of our organization.”
The firm has steadily expanded since its purchase by private equity firm Stone Point Capital in November 2018. Since that time Eliassen has bolted on Credere Group, a Denver-based management consulting and staffing firm; Project One, a NYC-based IT staffing firm; Webster Consulting Group, a Woburn, MA–based boutique IT consulting and staffing solutions company; and The Armada Group, a Santa Cruz, CA–based IT talent solutions firm..
