French marketing agency Havas Group has reportedly acquired UK management consultancy Gate One. The move will enable Havas to expand and evolve as an integrated service provider at a time when competitors are also aggressively pursuing acquisitions.

Gate One works directly with agencies to improve their methods of working to transform their business. Gate One will relocate its entire staff of 70-plus digital and business transformation specialists to the Havas Kings Cross Village in London by early next year.

According to reports, Havas Group's CEO and Chairman, Yannick Bolloré commented on the acquisition, saying, “Investing in the consultancy space is a bold move that has the potential to unlock huge growth for our Group in the UK and beyond. Meaningfulness is at the core of everything we do at Havas so it is really exciting to find a business like Gate One which truly speaks our language. I’d like to welcome the team on board.”

In a push to strengthen its presence in India, Havas Group has acquired digital agency Langoor in September this year.
