Digital agency Convert Digital acquired ahead of global expansion
Convert Digital takes business in new direction with new managing partners.
Leading digital agency, Convert Digital is thrilled to announce its acquisition by partners Andrew Waite, Adam Littlechild and Luke Anderson.
The new ownership structure will see Convert Digital expand its footprint taking Australian brands internationally, with Forever New’s new US platform Evernew launching on Shopify Plus and the successful launch of Australian kitchenware brand House into the UK on Magento.
The new direction of Convert Digital by its managing partners has led to other new exciting work including the rollout of new BigCommerce site for leading mens fashion retailer Aquila and expanding its footprint internationally with the launch of New Zealand’s iconic clothing brand Swanndri’s new ecommerce website on Magento 2.

We pride ourselves on being technology partners for our clients and we’re thrilled to extend our offering to new international markets.”
“We have several exciting plans in the pipeline to continue to take Australian brands internationally. A website isn’t just an extension or a landing page for a business, it’s more often than not a retail businesses most successful store, the first introduction to a brand and the immediate first brand touch point or online experience,” says Waite.
