Our Clients and Customers

We work with client organisations in a broad range of sectors.  About 75% of our work is the private sector where we work extensively with FTSE 350 or equivalent sized organisations but also relish partnering with smaller, ambitious firms to help them achieve their strategic goals and growth plans.  Confidentiality is important to us and to many of our clients, so we don't name them on our site but we have a particular emphasis on Financial Services, FMCG, Retail, Technology, Utilities and Professional Services firms.
