23-JUNE-2023 A personal announcement from the CEO
Deloitte Digital Israel Acquires WEKU Israel; WEKU International remains independent.
Yep. It happened.
Deloitte Israel acquires WEKU Israel; WEKU International remains independent.
As the Owner of WEKU International, I am delighted to announce that our company remains an independent entity, even after Deloitte's exclusive acquisition of WEKU Israel's activity.
Our offices in Amsterdam, Cape Town, and Barcelona continue to operate independently. This shows our commitment to delivering exceptional services worldwide while leveraging our global presence.
This strategic development allows us to further expand and innovate while maintaining the unique essence of WEKU International.
It feels surreal to reflect on the incredible journey I embarked on back in 2018 when I founded WEKU Israel. After years of leading projects across Europe, I decided it was time to take the plunge and start my very own venture. I embraced the challenge as a one-man show, taking on every role from passing to shooting and handling it all. As demand for our services increased, I realized that I couldn't do it alone. Fate intervened, and I had the privilege of crossing paths with some truly wonderful individuals who shared my vision. Together, we took the leap of faith and established WEKU Israel, building it from the ground up.
From methodologies to enablement, finance to administration, we crafted every aspect of our operations ourselves.
We poured our hearts and souls into creating a company that was dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of quality and delivering exceptional results to our clients. Through hard work, perseverance, and unwavering dedication, we thrived.
Fast forward five years and WEKU Israel has become a market leader with a deep understanding of the local market and business culture.
We have achieved this by bringing extensive technical knowledge, years of experience, and unique agile work methodologies to the table. Our commitment to excellence and constant innovation has set us apart and propelled us to the forefront of the industry.
Looking back, I am filled with gratitude for the amazing team that has been instrumental in our success. Their talent, passion, and unwavering support have been the driving force behind our growth and achievements.
As we continue to evolve and expand, I am excited to embrace new challenges, forge meaningful partnerships, and push the boundaries of what is possible.
Our journey is a testament to the power of determination, collaboration, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. But, above all else, our focus has always been on the strategy that will drive our continued international growth. We believe in building a foundation of values and commitment that sets us apart:
1️. Good-hearted on board: When it comes to building our team, we are dedicated to recruiting top-quality, self-initiated seniors who bring their expertise and passion to the table. But it doesn't stop there. We understand the importance of fostering a supportive environment where everyone feels like family. Our commitment goes beyond professional support - it's about endless personal support too. Together, we create a work culture that thrives on collaboration and compassion.
2. Quality over quantity: we believe in being the best at what we do. We choose to dive deep than asides. We have developed strong expertise in niche solutions. This allows us to gain a deep understanding of our offerings and fill in the gaps between us and our competitors.
To our Israeli Employees and Customers: We want to assure our Israeli clients that there will be no disruptions in service or operations, as we remain committed to providing them with unchanged services from the same dedicated teams under the reliable management of our Israeli branch.
As we embark on this exciting chapter of our international growth, we hold true to our values, ensuring that our team, our clients, and our services are aligned with the highest sta
