September 2018

Equiteq, a global leader in knowledge economy M&A, is pleased to announce that it has advised Mexia in Australia.

Mexia was established in 2008 by CEO Dean Robertson, and offers Microsoft integration consulting, cloud, infrastructure and managed service solutions. Its 50 deep expertise specialists are equally spread across offices in both Melbourne and Brisbane.

The team will join Deloitte Consulting’s Technology Advisory Platform Engineering practice, with Robertson and current COO Mathew Coleman to become Deloitte Consulting partners.

Deloitte CEO, Richard Deutsch, said: “We are about enabling our clients to successfully execute strategy, innovate, and meeting the needs of their customers and stakeholders. Deep specialisation needs to be at the core of any professional services offering and the value we need to provide. Mexia, and the additional capability the team will bring certainly fits this mould.”

Clifford Foster, Platform Engineering Leader and Deloitte Consulting partner said: “Deloitte already has a market-leading Australian cloud-based integration services and platform engineering practice across AWS, MuleSoft and Red Hat. The team from Mexia will add to an already substantial platform engineering and systems integration national practice, and expand our portfolio into the Microsoft Azure platform and offerings across systems integration, the ‘Internet of Things’ and what we call ‘data in motion’, identifying the value of data flowing between systems in real time.”

Mexia CEO Dean Robertson said: “Joining a successful, growing and broad-based professional services leader like Deloitte is a great move for our business, and one that will present great opportunities for our people. Helping clients across multiple sectors to realise the value of cloud-based technology transformation is our bread and butter.”

Regarding Equiteq’s role in the transaction, Dean Robertson said: “Equiteq has been instrumental in assisting Mexia, from preparation, to the management of the process, and right up to completion. I am very pleased to have had them assist in our next stage of growth.”

Pierre Briand, MD of Equiteq Australia commented: “We have been behind Mexia every step of the way since preparing the business for new challenges. We wish Mexia and Deloitte great success to create a significant player in the Microsoft integration consulting sector in Australia.”
