The new partnership will enhance CI&T’s operations in Europe and will add almost 300 new digital specialists with deep expertise in digital products across a range of several verticals, as well as a strong leadership team with a proven track record.

The leaders of Somo are still its founders, Nick Hynes and Carl Uminski keeping the high name of one of the most valuable companies in the UK. Somo reported net revenue of US$34 million for 2021, a staggering 41% increase from the previous year.
