With acquisition of Seattle firm, LiquidHub adds 1,000 staffers

None of those employees are coming to Philly, but the acquisition is a big show of muscle from the Main Line firm.

Wayne, Pa.-based customer engagement company LiquidHub just made a sizeable push for growth with the acquisition of Annik, a Seattle-based data analytics firm, which will add 1,000 employees (between full-time, contractors and part-time) to the company’s existing workforce of 2,000.

“The addition of Annik’s world-class capabilities in market research, data science, data analytics, and insights around customer behavior is critically important to LiquidHub’s rapid growth in this space,” said LiquidHub CEO and cofounder Jonathan Brassington in a press release published last week.

Around 800 full-timers are currently based out of the company’s Wayne and Center City locations. LiquidHub has 11 sites around the U.S., Europe and India.

No jobs coming to Philly as of yet, though. “Annik’s employees continue to operate in their established offices in Gurgaon [in India], Seattle, Warsaw and Shanghai,” a LiquidHub spokesperson told Technical.ly in an email on Thursday.

As part of the deal, Rahul Sahgal, president and CEO of Annik, and Sandeep Bhatia, COO, will join LiquidHub’s executive team.

“LiquidHub has a long history of delivering exceptional customer engagement solutions for their clients and through the addition of Annik’s expertise we are uniquely qualified to solve our customers’ most challenging problems,” Sahgal said. “It’s a great opportunity for us all at Annik to join forces with LiquidHub and together create a future re-imagining customer engagement.”

Though no financial details from the transaction were disclosed, the acquisition boosts staffers by 50 percent which is a pretty big push for growth. Looks like we’ll have to keep a closer eye on LiquidHub during 2017.
