Renovus Capital Partners Announces Strategic Acquisition of Leading Digital Consulting Firm, LeapPoint
Reston, VA and Wayne, PA, July 21, 2021 — Renovus Capital Partners (“Renovus”), a Philadelphia-area private equity firm, announced today that it has acquired LeapPoint, LLC (“LeapPoint”), the industry-leading digital consulting firm specializing in connecting work, technology, and talent to drive unparalleled business experiences and outcomes.
Recognized by Forbes and Vault as a top consulting firm four years in a row, the acquisition follows a period of record-setting growth for LeapPoint as it continues to drive digital transformation for some of the world’s largest companies. As both an Adobe Gold partner and Workfront partner of the year, Adobe’s acquisition of Workfront maximized LeapPoint’s ability to deliver deeper and broader solutions to clients across finance, healthcare, and retail.
“During and post COVID, the importance of connected digital solutions to improve customer and employee experiences is greater than ever,” said Jesse Serventi, Founding Partner at Renovus. “LeapPoint’s innovative approach to connected digital experiences is transforming the biggest companies in the world. Under our partnership, we plan to help LeapPoint scale even faster to a larger set of enterprise clients.”
“This is an exciting and pivotal time for LeapPoint employees, clients and the customers they serve,” said LeapPoint CEO Nicholas DeBenedetto. “Renovus shares our people-first mindset and we are excited to work with them to bring rocket fuel to our end-to-end Connected Work breadth of services for Adobe, Adobe Workfront and other technology implementations. Together, we align to create a driving force and disruptor in the marketplace.”
LeapPoint’s multidisciplinary team of consultants consists of former industry practitioners across vertical markets committed to delivering a human-centered approach to unlocking how people and systems come together. The LeapPoint executive leadership team will remain unchanged and CEO Nicholas DeBenedetto will hold a seat on the Board of Directors.
KippsDeSanto & Co. served as the sell-side advisor to LeapPoint. DLA Piper served as legal counsel and Cherry Bekaert as accounting advisor to Renovus.
