The list includes AstraZeneca, IKEA, MotoNovo, Kelloggs, Dell, Mastercard, New York Power, Mayo Clinic, Rio Tinto, Brisbane Airport, CIB Bank, Schroders and Saab.

The company is headquartered in London with offices in New York and Sydney.

The acquisition will see the continuation of the existing Orbus management team – Hayden Eastwood, CEO; Rupert Colbourne, Chief Technology Officer; Peter Bates, Head of Americas; Tim Mitchell, Head of Marketing; and Oliver Hecquer, Head of Consultancy & Support.

As part of the transaction, advisors are joining Orbus’ advisory board, including Vin Murria OBE, the founder of Advanced Computer Software plc which was acquired by Vista Equity; Adam Hale, former CEO of Fairsail and Chairman of the ScaleUp Institute; and Matt Harris, former partner at KPMG and FTI Consulting.
