Brussels, Belgium – 30 January 2013: 4C Associates, a leading cost transformation consultancy, has announced the opening of a Brussels office.
“Our new office demonstrates 4C’s commitment to continuing to grow our business, and offering the best possible service to our European partners,” said Ed Ainsworth, Managing Director at 4C Associates. “A localised offering will allow us to build on the success stories already achieved in mainland Europe, to expand our client base and deliver the optimised solutions our current partners need to thrive in a challenging environment.”
The Brussels office is composed of a selection of experienced local talent, which can draw on the extensive knowledge of 4C’s UK based experts. Led by Olivier Durand, Managing Director at 4C Associates Europe, the Brussels office will enable 4C Associates to respond to requests from current partners to replicate UK savings, in mainland Europe. 4C Associates offers a combination of consultancy services, technology solutions and procurement outsourcing to help large companies manage their costs.
“In an increasingly globalised economy it is important for us to have offices located in the heart of the European Union,” said Durand. “This expansion will allow 4C Associates to respond to a growing demand for best practice cost transformation services, across the channel.”
“Cost management consulting is generally less developed in many European countries and we are witnessing an increasing demand in the number of businesses which are looking for experts able to positively impact EBITDA.”
Prior to joining 4C Associates, Durand held senior roles at Smiths Group plc, buyingTeam, Société General and KPMG.
