Finite Group is pleased to announce the purchase of leading specialist Melbourne agency, Rowben Consulting. Co-founded by highly regarded Director, Tracee Rowe back in 2005, Rowben Consulting began as an IT specialist agency, before expanding into Insurance and Superannuation in 2008, and then Digital in 2012. Tracee is still very hands-on in the business today, leading the charge, and supporting a highly successful team of expert recruitment professionals. She will continue to lead the team as part of Finite’s Senior Management.
Tracee Rowe commented that she “has known about Finite in the VIC market for a long time. Joining forces with Finite as one of the largest and most successful of the Australian privately owned agencies will give me and my team access to a wealth of additional support, innovation and career opportunities. It is very much a progressive step forward for our clients, contractors and most importantly my team.”
The acquisition includes Rowben’s substantial Contractor base, transferral of all staff and numerous high profile ‘preferred supplier agreements’.
Finite’s established Melbourne office came about from its acquisition of IT&T Careers back in 2002 and has grown substantially since these early days. Finite’s Victorian State Manager, Sean Duffy, commented that “Rowben Consulting has an excellent reputation for outstanding customer service and delivery, and the acquisition will further enhance Finite’s reach into the buoyant Melbourne market with their highly successful and respected team. This will expand our service offerings into the niche Insurance and Superannuation space for the first time, as well as further enhance our successful Technology, Digital and Business Transformation teams.”
Finite’s Managing Director, Tracy Thomson, commented that the purchase was “an excellent opportunity to acquire a highly regarded specialist agency with a substantial contracting base, strong permanent capability and a very experienced and talented team with additional complementary services. Looking ahead, this important acquisition provides a strong platform for future growth in Melbourne and also in both Sydney and Brisbane.”
The successful Rowben Consulting brand will be retained as part of the Finite Group.
