History

Hitachi Consulting was founded through the acquisition of Grant Thornton’s consulting branch in November 2000. Since then the company has acquired a number of competitors, such as WaveBend Solutions from BDO Seidman (June 2001), Tactica Technology (November 2001), Aspirity (April 2004), Dove Consulting (August 2005), Impact Plus through the subsidiary Hitachi Consulting UK (April 2007), Iteration2 (June 2007) and JMN Associates (March 2008). After the dissolvment of Arthur Andersen, 23 partners and 370 consultants of Andersen Business Consulting (AABC) also joined the company in June 2002.

The U.S. subsidiary did not go by the name Hitachi Consulting until May 2003. The Japanese Hitachi company Exsurge was renamed in April 2006 accordingly.

Hitachi Consulting Europe (HCE) was founded in March 2006 through the establishment of subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal and most recently Germany. Since November 2005 the firm operates a Global Solution Center in India.
