BOULDER — Spinnaker SCA LLC, a Boulder-based supply-chain consulting firm formed in 2021 with the merger of SCApath LLC and Spinnaker SCS LLC, was acquired last month by Publicis Groupe, a multinational advertising and public relations firm headquartered in Paris. 

Spinnaker SCA will become part of Publicis Sapient, Publicis Groupe’s digital-business transformation division, according to a Publicis news release.
