Frequently Asked Questions
What is the rationale behind the setting up of Verraki Partners?
+-

Professional Services firms in Nigeria are currently at an inflexion point. Digital technologies, new ideas and business models create disruptions, while startups compound the challenging business terrain. New factors such as agility, flexibility, cost-leadership, value for money and entrepreneurship are required for success and to harvest the opportunities from this disruption.

Accenture has decided to reorganize and change its approach to the Nigerian market. Hence, Accenture is supporting the establishment of a local entity/professional practice led by former leaders who have more than 125 years of professional experience in working with Accenture and other multinational companies.

Verraki Partners has been approved as a Business Intermediary of Accenture in Nigeria. Services to Accenture clients in Nigeria will now be delivered through Verraki Partners.

Verraki Partners have identified a change in clients’ needs in Nigeria, especially in the areas of speed, flexibility, risk appetite, affordability, entrepreneurship etc. Its birth at an auspicious time like this will enable a re-balance and re-configuration to address the specific needs of the market.
