Ireland-based professional services firm Accenture which has a significant presence in Houston, has acquired Enaxis Consulting for an undisclosed amount.

Houston-based Enaxis serves Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies and focuses on clients in the upstream oil and gas sector, oil field service sector and the airline industry.

All of Enaxis’ approximately 75 employees are joining Accenture, a spokesperson said. Most of them are based in Houston, where Accenture already has about 1,800 employees. Enaxis employees who serve oil and gas clients are now part of the Resources Operating Group of Accenture’s North American energy practice, while those focused on the airline industry are now part of Accenture’s Products Operating Group, the spokesperson said.


The acquisition will help Accenture grow its oil and gas business in North America, John Downie, a senior managing director at Accenture who leads its energy practice in North America, said in the release.

“We look forward to building on targeted business services for core oil and gas areas, including drilling and completions, production operations and asset portfolio optimization,” Downie said in the release.

Dhiren Shethia, co-founder and a managing partner of Enaxis, said joining Accenture “will help clients achieve game-changing digital transformations on a larger scale. Our combination also paves the way for our employees to realize exciting new career paths in digital technology and industry consulting while gaining access to Accenture’s services in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations.”

Enaxis has experience in digital capabilities, data science and agile project delivery, and Accenture provides a broad range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations, per the release.

Shethia and Jonas Georgsson, former Deloitte consultants, co-founded Enaxis in 2002.
