After secret $500 million Super Bowl deal, LiquidHub ‘will hire thousands’

Written by Joe DiStefano, Philadelphia Inquirer 

During this year’s Super Bowl, Jonathan Brassington had a $500 million secret.

The chief executive and cofounder of LiquidHub was in Minneapolis to host a gang of pharma, insurance, and investment company clients and to root for the Eagles. The day before the game, he agreed by long distance to sell his Wayne-based “digital customer engagement” company for a price double its yearly sales.

The buyer, France-based business-consulting giant Capgemini, is a public company — a big one, with $16 billion in yearly sales, a 200,000- member staff, and global clients such as Mercedes-Benz, Ikea, and Walt Disney. So, Brassington couldn’t share his inside information with all the happy, partying fellow Philadelphians around him until the official announcement Monday. The deal plus the game made for “a very exciting weekend,” he recalled, laughing.

LiquidHub acquires Eveo to form new health offering

Eveo, a 18-year old agency known for its digital chops, has been acquired by customer-engagement firm LiquidHub. Eveo will now operate under the LiquidHub banner as part of a new health offering known as LiquidHealth.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Eveo will combine with LiquidHub’s existing life sciences team to create the new offering, and no layoffs are planned as a result of the acquisition, the parties said. Olivier Zitoun (pictured), previous founder and CEO of Eveo, is now a partner at LiquidHub. He will lead the new entity with Hank Summy, LiquidHub’s chief revenue officer and partner.
