Arrowpoint Advisory Checks In After Rebrand

A complete rebrand is a marketing initiative in which a brand’s identity is changed, typically for the purposes of influencing how a brand is perceived in the minds of its consumers and stakeholders.

Following Rothschild & Co’s acquisition of Livingstone in the United Kingdom, which was completed in December 2019, the team has become Arrowpoint Advisory and is the dedicated United Kingdom lower mid-market team within Rothschild & Co’s Global Advisory business.

Arrowpoint Advisory is one of the United Kingdom’s most successful mergers and acquisitions, debt advisory and special situations advisers in its market with a 40-year track record of delivering outstanding results for clients.

As part of the Rothschild & Co group, Arrowpoint Advisory is the only financial adviser in its market with a global platform of this scale, with unparalleled access to the group’s comprehensive sector expertise and offices in over 40 countries.

The Arrowpoint Advisory team delivers insight, expertise and hands-on support to entrepreneurs, sponsors and corporates principally across the Business Services, Consumer, Healthcare, Industrials and Media & Technology sectors.

With a team of 35 bankers and a track record of over 650 completed transactions, the Arrowpoint Advisory team has a focus on client-first advice defined by technical rigour, understanding of markets and commitment to execution excellence.

New Consulting Partners Join Deloitte France

If you are ready to innovate and transform your business, Deloitte France can help you imagine, create and control your future, whatever your business, thanks to next-generation technologies covering strategy development as well as implementation.

Both new partners have been at Deloitte for between six months to one and a half years, and after demonstrating their track record externally and internally, they have been promoted to senior partner and admitted into Monitor Deloitte’s ranks.

Monitor Deloitte is the strategy consulting brand of Deloitte Consulting, established in 2012 after Deloitte acquired Monitor Group, a boutique United States headquartered strategic consultancy that was founded by among others strategy guru Michael Porter.

Hélène Chaplain is a senior partner in the firm’s Digital Strategy and Innovation practice, and is the leader of Deloitte’s wider Consumer Business industry segment, which spans services to clients in the automotive, consumer goods, retail, transportation and hospitality industries. She previously spent 17 years at Accenture, since 2001 in the role of partner.

In her most recent roles, Chaplain served as Accenture France’s industry lead for consumer goods and was head of the firm’s digital consulting arm for clients in the products landscape.

Mathieu Colas is a senior partner in charge of Monitor Deloitte’s automotive and new mobility offerings. He started his career with Deloitte at Deloitte Digital – the Big Four firm’s rapidly growing digital wing – and previously spent four years at Capgemini Invent and over a decade at Oliver Wyman.

Colas focuses on topics including strategy, large-scale transformation, emerging technologies, advanced analytics and digital transformation.

As part of their new roles, both Colas and Chaplain joined Monitor Deloitte’s annual offsite in June. During the three day trip to Biarritz in the south of France, the firm’s leadership walked through the year’s top accomplishments and the ambitions for the current financial year. Meanwhile, consultants were provided the room to network, share experiences and best practices and enjoy the region’s sunny weather and culinary culture.

Last year, Monitor Deloitte France added Olivier Perrin, a former Accenture Strategy partner, to its leadership ranks in Paris.

Consulting Firms Eye Trophies at MCA Awards 2019

As the representative body for the United Kingdom’s leading management consulting firms, the MCA has been its industry’s collective voice for more than six decades.

Its members make up more than 60% of the United Kingdom consulting industry, and employ roughly 45,000 professionals, while working with more than 90 of the leading FTSE 100 companies and the vast majority of the public sector.

Organised by the industry body, the MCA Awards are now entering their 22nd year, and have long been seen as the benchmark for quality within Britain’s consulting industry. The event commends best practices and high-quality performance in the United Kingdom’s £10 billion consulting industry across three areas, with awards for client excellence handed out in the process.

As well as demonstrating the value of consulting, the event also shows how clients and consultants working together can achieve the best results in the future.

Since January 2019, a team of expert judges has assessed which nominees across 21 award categories will win the battle for the prestigious industry prizes. In the 2019 nominations, PwC leads with 11 nods, closely followed by Big Four rival EY, which received nine.

The ceremony is a long way from being monopolised by the professional services industry’s biggest guns however, with Coeus, Arcadis, Arup, GE Healthcare, NHS England, PA Consulting, Atos, BAE Systems, Curzon Company, iMPOWER, Jabobs, North Highland, Parker Fitzgerald, Elixirr, Sia Partners, Simon Kucher, Vendigital and Atkins all having picked up multiple nominations.

The winners will be announced at this year’s award presentation, which takes place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel. Some 700 guests from consulting firms, their clients, the media and representatives from across all forms of government are expected to take in the proceedings, while the ceremony will be hosted by BBC journalist Clive Myrie.

Working for BBC News as London World Affairs Correspondent, Myrie is also Presenter of the BBC Weekend News, while anchoring the famous 10pm slot for BBC News on alternate Sundays.
