Taking Digital to the Next Level

Monday, October 26, 2020 – London, New York, Toronto and Hong Kong

We are delighted to announce that Citihub Digital has been acquired by Synechron, Inc., a New York-based leading Digital Transformation consulting firm for the financial services industry.

The combination of Synechron’s innovation-led digital transformation work and Citihub Digital’s strong capabilities in application modernization, cloud enablement, cybersecurity and operating model transformation will lead to continued growth for both companies specifically in key financial markets across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.

Post-acquisition, the firms will service many of the biggest logos in financial services including 9 of the top 10 global banks and will present clients with a comprehensive set of digital transformation capabilities. With Citihub Digital’s strong footprint in London and New York, this acquisition supports Synechron’s regional growth strategy to continue a focused expansion in these key financial markets and provide Citihub’s clients with an enhanced global delivery model and the ability to scale projects quickly.

Citihub Digital Co-founder and Managing Director Chris Allison said, “We are thrilled to be joining Synechron and excited by what that means for our clients and employees. I’ve been really impressed with the investments they have made in Financial Innovation Labs (FinLabs) across key financial markets, their R&D efforts and their award-winning Digital Accelerators to lead the industry in areas like AI, Data Science, RegTech, InsurTech, WealthTech and Blockchain. Together, we have a really strong portfolio of capabilities and solutions, from AI to cloud compliance.”

Synechron Co-founder and CEO Faisal Husain said, “This acquisition continues to build on our depth of expertise in Digital Transformation consulting for financial services and insurance firms. We are pleased to have the talented individuals at Citihub Digital across the globe join us in assisting clients in accelerating their digital transformation initiatives.
