Dept expands fast-growing US presence with software consultancy Devetry
March 22, 2021
Devetry and Boston-based Rocket Insights, which joined Dept in 2019, form the backbone for Dept’s fast growing digital product and technology services in the U.S. The two Dept agencies are already collaborating to help U.S. clients build and accelerate their digital businesses.
Founded in 2015, Devetry is Denver’s largest independent software engineering organization, with expertise across renewable energy, education, cybersecurity and SaaS products. They help clients like Arizona State University, NREL and Intel with strategy, product management, UX/UI design, firmware development, technology and innovations that span mobile apps to enterprise technologies. Devetry has been one of Denver’s fastest growing privately-owned businesses, experiencing over 100% revenue growth each year.
“Our mission is to simplify the complex world of software and deliver the best results for our clients,” said Brett Truka, CEO and co-founder at Devetry. “Joining Dept enables us to immediately expand our global footprint and our service offerings in data, digital marketing and commerce to provide more value to our clients across a diverse range of technologies. We both share a strong commitment to our clients and our people, so we couldn’t be more excited about the years ahead with Dept.”
Headquartered in Amsterdam, and backed by investment firm The Carlyle Group, Dept is one of the fastest-growing digital agencies in the world, represented in 13 countries with over 1,750 people across the globe. With a purely digital DNA, Dept brings together creativity, technology and data experts in integrated teams for clients like Bose, Indigo Ag, Patagonia, Netflix and Formula E. Devetry joins Rocket Insights, BASIC® and Byte to form the heart of Dept in the U.S.
“Devetry has built a talented team stacked with a variety of languages, frameworks, databases, and tools, enabling them to deliver value to our clients from day one,” said Dimi Albers, CEO of Dept. “The addition of Devetry will add to our strong technology and engineering capabilities in the US, as well as open up exciting new markets for us in Denver and Portland.”
Now part of Dept, Devetry will continue to operate under the leadership of co-founder and CEO, Brett Truuka, and co-founder and CTO, Allan Wintersieck.
