Chaucer Acquires Medley Business Solutions

Chaucer Group, a digital transformation consulting firm based in London, New York and Houston has acquired Medley Business Solutions, an independent client-side ICT consultancy. The deal creates a combined team of more than 500 consultants in the UK and US.

Chaucer continues its successful expansion with the acquisition of Medley Business Solutions, who bring strong expertise in ICT programmes in public sector and specific capabilities in law enforcement to the group. This enables Chaucer to expand its footprint in UK Central Government and offer an enhanced range of services to public sector organisations.

Chaucer has a 30-year track record of supporting private and public sector organisations through complex change programmes. Building on earlier success, a 2014 management buyout (MBO) led by CEO Chris Laslett saw the firm bring in external investment to help accelerate growth, both organically and via a campaign of acquisitions. Chaucer now has an enviable client portfolio across the energy, life sciences, public services, law enforcement, legal and manufacturing sectors and helps clients to become true digital enterprises, transforming their businesses through improved strategies, operating models and technology approaches.

Accelerating its continuing growth even further, Chaucer joined together with one of Europe’s leading advisory companies Bip in 2020 to create a global advisory company with over €350 million revenue.

Founded in 1997, and still managed by founder Tim Eglen, the Guildford-headquartered company is a successful IT and management consultancy. It provides independent client-side services from strategy through to implementation and operation. The firm has successfully delivered its services to Central Government, Criminal Justice, Law Enforcement, Government Agencies and NDPBs over the last two decades.

We are excited about this opportunity. It is a great chance for Medley and our employees to build on our on-going successful growth and create new value for our clients, citizens and wider society. Chaucer is an ideal partner as we have shared values and ways of working.

Tim Eglen, Founder, Medley Business Solutions

I am delighted to welcome Medley into the Chaucer family. We have been working closely together as partners in the past and I am looking forward to continue our journey now as one team.

Chris Laslett, CEO, Chaucer
