Praecipio Acquires Gurnet Consulting, Amplifying Atlassian Capabilities Across the Northeast

Combined expertise to deepen best-of-breed Atlassian, ITSM, and Agile solutions, enabling connected, responsive enterprises

Austin, TX and Boston, MA – September 13, 2023 – Praecipio is acquiring Gurnet Consulting, an Atlassian-specialized management consulting firm, broadening its global practice in the Northeastern Core of the U.S. and Canada. Gurnet is a trusted Atlassian Partner, with a proven track record of helping clients achieve enterprise agility. The agreement reinforces Praecipio’s mission to build connected enterprises. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition is an integral step in Praecipio’s long-term strategy to meet the growing needs of the global enterprise transformation market. Even as companies invest in the technology needed to support new ways of working, a recent PwC survey found that a staggering 88% of executives struggle to realize the full value of new tech investments. Praecipio aims to close that chasm, ensuring a seamless connection between people, process, and technology; unlocking innovation and freeing teams to deliver what matters most.

Gurnet is acclaimed for its customizable suite of enterprise agility solutions that enable clients to develop, manage, and execute strategy with speed and at scale. They have successfully managed over $950M of strategic initiatives across 15 different industries, while achieving 97 percent customer satisfaction.

“Gurnet is known and respected throughout the Northeast for its large-scale consulting expertise,” said Praecipio Chief Executive Officer Michael Rapp. “Combined, we deepen our best-in-breed engagement models as well as our award-winning Atlassian, DevOps, ESM/ITSM, and agile capabilities. Together, we are uniquely positioned to help customers by empowering people, optimizing processes, and connecting business with technology to enable modern, responsive enterprises.”

Gurnet joins Praecipio’s growing and robust team, delivering strong customer-focused business practices and superior technical capabilities. Acquiring Gurnet further cements Praecipio’s position as the market leader for Atlassian products and enterprise transformation in the U.S. and Canada, expanding its footprint in the Northeast. 

“We are excited to join Praecipio in delivering proven value that goes beyond product expertise,” said Gurnet Chief Executive Officer Martin J. King. “We’ve both seen how many organizations strive to maximize the power of the Atlassian ecosystem, but don’t have the capability or capacity to experience the full benefits. Our shared depth of expertise gives our clients what they need to achieve a well-crafted strategy that is well-executed.”

Gurnet joins a growing list of recent acquisitions by Praecipio, including Avant, Coyote Creek and 6kites, all award-winning Atlassian Solution Partners, and propels Praecipio as one of the fastest-growing and largest North American Platinum Solution Partners.
