LONDON, UK, 1 JUNE 2017 – Datatec’s global telecoms consulting and research firm Analysys Mason has acquired Nexia Management Consulting AS based in Norway.

Nexia Management Consulting AS is a telecoms management consultancy, which has developed a unique track record in Norway and other Nordic countries where it has worked with all players in the value chain including operators, regulators and investors.

The Nexia Management Consulting AS team is based in Oslo and has built up significant experience in strategy consulting in telecoms and technology since the business was founded in 1992.

The acquisition of Nexia Management Consulting AS will enhance Analysys Mason’s existing track record in the Nordics, where telecoms, media and technology (TMT) markets are among the most advanced in the world and have been at the forefront of many new developments.

The combination of Nexia Management Consulting’s long-standing experience and broad expertise in the Norwegian TMT market and Analysys Mason’s strong international market position in TMT consulting and research will provide exceptional insights for the benefit of clients worldwide.

“We are delighted to welcome colleagues from Nexia Management Consulting AS on board and look forward to combining our international consulting expertise and extensive research portfolio to support clients. It is a key acquisition that forms part of our international expansion plans,” says Bram Moerman, CEO at Analysys Mason.

Jan Morten Ruud, Chairman of the Board at Nexia Management Consulting AS adds, “We have built Nexia Management Consulting AS into the leading TMT consulting company in Scandinavia as part of Nexia International. Becoming a part of Analysys Mason is a major boost for our company and our clients will now have access to Analysys Mason’s global TMT resources. This will strengthen our ability to create value for customers and our market position. It will also provide our employees with new opportunities for career development in what we regard as the premier TMT consulting company in the world.”

“The acquisition of Nexia Management Consulting AS is strategically important as it significantly strengthens Analysys Mason’s position in the Nordic region while adding valuable skills and expertise to its consulting division,’’ says Jens Montanana, CEO of Datatec Group, Analysys Mason’s parent company.
