The future of product lifecycle management: team from data specialists d-twin to join Deloitte

11 July 2023:  The team from data and product lifecycle management (PLM) specialists d-twin is set to join Deloitte, in a move that will significantly grow the professional services firm’s client offerings and market presence in this specialist area. 

Founded in 2017, d-twin offers PLM solution delivery and enterprise integration. It is headquartered in Melbourne, with people also in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra. 

d-twin specialises in the cost-effecitve and low-risk delivery of Siemens-enabled PLM solutions. This enables organisations to seamlessly collaborate and share a continuous digital thread from design and development through the entire lifecycle of an asset or product. 

A team of 18 will be joining Deloitte, including directors Andrew Bradford, Barry Tregidgo, Brendon van Ras, Garry Russell, and Steven Godsell. 

Deloitte Consulting Smart Industries leader, Jesse Sherwood, said: “As Australia seeks to reindustrialise and take advantage of future growth industries on the global stage, it requires advanced technologies, innovations and active participation in global supply chains. 

“PLM technologies provide a platform to enable this value to be unlocked through the continuous digital thread spanning design, manufacturing and through-life value derived from any product or asset. 

“On their own, Deloitte and d-twin have been delivering high value PLM client solutions for a number of years across complex product and asset heavy sectors. The inclusion of the d-twin team into Deloitte’s Smart Industries offering, enhances our ability to serve our clients in Australia with the PLM solutions they need to participate in global supply chains and create genuine sovereignty. 

“Integrating the highly experienced d-twin team into our firm will add further scale and depth of capability, and create the largest PLM group in the country, including across Siemens’ digital applications –  from consultancy to implementation, and embedded support to tailored solutions. We’re excited to be welcoming them to Deloitte.” 

d-twin founder and Director, Steven Godsell, said: “At d-twin, our mission has always been simple, and that’s to help our clients maximise the value of their data via end-to-end PLM software implementation and integration. 

“We’ve built a great, well-regarded business in a relatively short time that helps organisastions harmonise product, data, people and processes. 

“We’re excited about Deloitte’s vision for how our people can now take PLM client offerings to the next level.” 

d-twin Managing Director, Barry Tregidgo, said: “Deloitte has a strong market presence in technology consulting and working with clients to deliver the benefits well-executed PLM technologies can offer. 

“Our culture and values are closely aligned, and the time is right to take what is a logical next step for our team.” 

The d-twin team will formally join Deloitte on 17 July 2023. Terms of the transaction are confidential.
