Read the press release
Founded in 2000, Carbon Five
is a digital product development consultancy. They partner with their clients to create exceptional products and grow effective teams.
We are excited to welcome Carbon Five, a likeminded organization with strong talent and integrated product capabilities. When paired up with Verys’s scale and West Monroe’s core expertise in strategy, industry, and tech, we are able to drive long-lasting value and partnership to our clients.
What leadership says
Carbon Five will help accelerate West Monroe’s vision of becoming a world-class product organization, with industry-led digital strategy, product management, product design, and product engineering across the entire product lifecycle.
Carbon Five’s experience in these areas will help us achieve this vision.
Demand for custom digital products is increasing as companies look to differentiate their customer and employee experience
Customer needs evolve alongside expectations—they increasingly are seeking world-class products and experiences that are consistent and fluid between the digital and physical worlds
Shortage of in-house talent has even the most advanced companies lacking critical capabilities to bring digital products to market faster
West Monroe is committed to building our product development capabilities, including a $250million investment to build end-to-end digital services, and when combined with our recent acquisition, Verys, and the scale they bring, we believe this will boost our ability to deliver across the breadth of the product lifecycle, and provide depth in engagements with clients’ product environments.
