Sponsored by Businesswire

, an OSF Global brand, today announces the acquisition of
award-winning UK eCommerce agency Blueleaf
– whose clients include Laura Ashley, Life Style Sports, Tate Modern and
V&A Museum – as part of its strategy to build a significant presence in
the UK.

Founded in 1999, with offices in the UK and Bulgaria, Blueleaf provides
top retailers and brands with planning, UX, development and support for
complex projects built on Salesforce Commerce Cloud, one of the world’s
leading eCommerce solutions. Since 2014, Blueleaf has been working with
growth and M&A advisory firm, Waypoint

and prepare itself for major investment.

Following the acquisition, Blueleaf will become OSF Commerce UK, giving
the Canadian company an established delivery center in the UK to help
grow its client base in the market. Blueleaf’s existing retail clients
will now have access to OSF Commerce’s global network of 32 locations,
as well as its extensive suite of multi-cloud, B2B and B2C commerce

Blueleaf’s acquisition follows a $23M USD equity investment
OSF Commerce announced earlier in May led by Delta-v Capital with
participation from Salesforce Ventures, Salesforce’s corporate
investment arm. The increased capital will help OSF to attract
additional talent, invest in AI-based technologies and finance
complementary acquisitions around the world.

“Our team is delighted to welcome Blueleaf to the OSF family,”
said Gerry Szatvanyi, CEO of OSF Commerce. “This acquisition will
help our company to deliver exceptional service to our valued clients
and fulfill their desire for transformative digital commerce
experiences. As OSF continues to make bold moves in the commerce
industry, we are continuing to increase our capacity to deliver complex
projects for brands who are driven towards growth on a global scale.”

their aspirations towards fusing creativity and technology in a way that
generates results and engages and captivates shoppers,”
said Adrian
Lomas, Founder and CEO of Blueleaf. “We’re excited to join OSF as
it’s a company that is constantly innovating and has made a considerable
impact on how digital commerce is conducted on a global scale.”

Commenting on Blueleaf’s acquisition, Miles Welch, Partner at Waypoint
