Accenture Acquires Adobe Partner Kaplan


Accenture Interactive's aggressive M&A strategy continues with the buyout of Stockholm-based Kaplan, an Adobe partner with customer relationship management expertise. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Nordics is a strategic growth region for Accenture, both in terms of finding new creative talent and expanding digital capabilities. The company recently appointed Adam Kerj to chief creative officer of the Nordics to help steer its operations in the area.

Kaplan, founded in 1987, has offices in Stockholm and Copenhagen with a subsidiary in Oslo. The company has won numerous awards, including the 2018 Adobe Marketing Cloud Partner of the year in the Nordics.

“Kaplan has experienced strong growth over the last few years, and we are proud to take this next step in our journey together with Accenture Interactive,” said Johan Nordenström, co-managing partner of Kaplan.
