London 31st January 2018
4C Associates, a leading European procurement consultancy specialising in cost reduction and transformation has been named one of UK’s leading management consultancies by The Financial Times, out of 8,000 companies.
With the current economic climate, the need for trusted corporate advisors has never been stronger and the inaugural list of leading management consultants highlights those consultancies that are most respected by their peers and clients. The list is based on two online surveys: one among partners and executives from the management consultancies and one among clients of the management consultancies; and has been published as a 16-page tabloid Special Report.
4C Associates is a dynamic, fast-growing and diverse procurement consultancy with over 17 years of experience working across multiple industries and geographies with clients ranging from medium sized enterprises to global 500 corporations.
“We are delighted to be recognised as a leader in management consulting. At 4C Associates, our focus is on enabling our clients to meet their strategic goals, ranging from rapid profit improvements to long term business transformation. Through our international presence, combined with our fresh approach and deep expertise in providing tailored solutions, our teams bring new insight and thought leadership to every engagement and this is a great recognition of their innovative work”, said Simon Terry, CEO of 4C Associates.
Whereas in the past, procurement functions were expected to focus purely on cost saving measures, that is clearly no longer the case. Once the foundations of an effective cost management system have been set, procurement is free to innovate and deliver to its potential. Modern procurement departments are able to guide the businesses strategy whilst impacting the bottom line.
“At 4C Associates we are constantly on the lookout for top procurement talent, particularly those who can blend the traditional procurement consultant skillset with the ability to build relationships and take a holistic approach to problem solving. It is this type of professionals which not only get the job done, but also elevate the function as a whole”, added Terry.
