Following an extensive rebrand, Australian IT services and consulting company FTS Group will from now house its growing number of businesses under the new name of Atturra.

After a string of recent acquisitions, Australian professional services outfit FTS Group has rebranded as Atturra, complete with a fresh logo and website. First established in 2015, the company says that the brand overhaul consolidates and better reflects the ever-expanding roster of labels under its umbrella – with Canberra-based defence consulting specialist Mentum Systems last month becoming the latest of its many recent bolt-ons.

“FTS Group’s smarts across all its businesses was not adequately represented by the original branding, and the business has outgrown its old structures. While all the units have been working closely together for some years now, as one unified brand Atturra is now in a stronger position to compete and lead in the IT and consulting services landscape,” said CEO Stephen Kowal, who was recruited from DXT Technologies two years ago.

Since his appointment, Kowal has overseen a near doubling in headcount fuelled by five acquisitions, with the purchase of higher education specialist ESAM Consulting and management consultancy Noetic also completed so far this year. Other subsidiaries include ANATAS (systems integration), Galaxy 42 (solutions), KoBold (decision systems), Cubic Consulting (change management) and Veritec (Microsoft Services).

These businesses will now be fully integrated under the Atturra brand, along with any future acquisitions, reflecting the growing collaboration among the formerly separate entities. According to the company, revenues have been running at a compound annual growth rate of above 23 percent since 2019, with over 600 clients served across the government, defence, education, financial services, and utilities sectors since its inception.

“The unification to Atturra reflects the emphasis on accessing enterprise scale, technologies, and specialisations the group offers,” said Kowal. “This rebranding milestone is significant for the company as the market accelerates and customers expect to partner with organisations that can maximise the value of end-to-end solutions. We’re proud of what we have achieved so far and equally confident of the new chapter in our story.”
