The international accounting and professional services network has brought in Sydney-headquartered IT consulting and solutions company The Missing Link in an exclusive services partnership covering Australia, New Zealand and Fiji (represented locally by HLB Mann Judd).

“We look forward to working with the dynamic team at The Missing Link, learning from each other as we navigate the ever-evolving IT landscape,” commented HLB International’s Chief Innovation Officer Abu Bakkar, who is based out of the firm’s London headquarters. “We will collaborate to expand their global reach, offering them the expertise they need in accounting and advisory services along the way.”

Founded by executive director Daniel Forsythe and current CEO Alex Gambotto in Sydney in 1997 and since growing its presence to Brisbane, Melbourne and most recently the United Kingdom, The Missing Link provides IT support with a focus on infrastructure, managed services, cloud and cybersecurity, and robotics.

According to its website, the company is pushing close to a headcount of 200, and has notched five years of continuous growth.

Ranked just outside the top ten largest networks of its kind with collective global revenues now surpassing the $4 billion mark, HLB meanwhile boasts a headcount closing in 40,000 across more than 1,000 offices in 150-plus countries worldwide. The Missing Link has partnered with HLB Mann Judd locally since 2016 (which has around a dozen regional outlets), helping the firm to achieve its secure digital transformation goals.

“We are honoured to join HLB as the exclusive representative firm for their international network in the ANZ region,” said Missing Link co-owner and CISO Aaron Bailey. “Not only do we look forward to assisting more HLB member firms and their clients, but we also look forward to the expanded global delivery footprint this partnership will provide to better service our existing clients with high quality secure digital outcomes.”
