WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 30, 2022): DT Global, a leading international development services provider, is pleased to announce that it has completed its acquisition of Cardno International Development (Cardno ID). Building on DT Global’s March 2022 acquisition of UK-based IMC Worldwide, DT Global’s capacity as a top tier international development supplier in key markets around the world is significantly enhanced through this exciting merger. Since 1969, Cardno ID has partnered with governments, communities, and the private sector to deliver results for sustainable, empowered, and inclusive development. Cardno ID currently manages over 90 projects globally for their core clients, including the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC). With its more than 1,600 highly skilled professional staff, Cardno ID brings to DT Global a rich history of projects across a wide variety of sectors, including environment and infrastructure; agriculture and rural development; public financial management; economic growth; and global health. Like DT Global, Cardno ID is committed to building partnerships and empowering local voices. This acquisition establishes DT Global as one of the most diversified international development players in the market, allowing DT Global to leverage experience and apply best practices from across our clients and partners—USAID, the European Commission, the MCC, the United Kingdom Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), and DFAT—to strengthen programming around the world.

“Since announcing the acquisition of Cardno International Development in March of this year, our teams have been eager to start collaborating with one another to create impact and transform lives at a greater scale than previously possible. I would like to welcome Cardno ID’s 1,600+ employees and look forward to realizing the opportunities that lie ahead,” says Torge Gerlach, Chief Executive Officer of DT Global. “Cardno ID Asia-Pacific significantly enhances our presence in the region, with a large number of corporate offices and project activities, allowing us to better serve our clients as the area continues to grow in geo-political importance. Similarly, the addition of Cardno ID US strengthens our partnership with USAID in key areas, including economic growth and governance as well as environment and infrastructure, and further enhances our relationship with the MCC and its compact country programs.” 

"We are excited to be joining DT Global and see this partnership as an excellent opportunity for both organisations to provide even better development programming for our global clients and stakeholders,” says Colin Adams, Managing Director of Cardno ID Asia-Pacific. Jaleen Moroney, President of Cardno ID US adds, "Our diverse and passionate staff are excited about the new range of possibilities that this merger provides. As part of DT Global, we look forward to delivering enhanced value and comprehensive development services to our global clients and to expanding our shared work driving innovation and strengthening communities." 

With this most recent acquisition, DT Global will have corporate head offices in Adelaide, London, Madrid, and Washington D.C., in addition to numerous regional satellite offices supporting its operations globally. Through their long- and short-term presence in over 90 countries, DT Global’s 2,100+ employees support the critical missions of its core clients, including USAID; MCC; FCDO; the European Commission; DFAT; and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), as well as other public and private sector stakeholders. In honor of its long history and well-respected reputation within the industry, Cardno ID will initially retain its name and brand, operating as Cardno International Development, a DT Global Company.
