From mid-July to late-September, The Financial Times and the independent market research institute Statista, launched surveys among thousands of peers and clients to identify the very best management consultancies in the UK.

Oliver Wight EAME are delighted to announce their recognition in the 4th annual Financial Times UK’s Leading Management Consultants Special Report. The business improvement specialists were particularly noted for their expertise in the consumer goods and retail sector.

“As a team we are very proud to be showcased among some incredible businesses, including our strategic partners EY and Oracle. We would like to thank our clients and peers for nominating us and for their continued support.” – Kate Roby, Commercial Director at Oliver Wight EAME.

The client survey was conducted among approximately 1,000 senior executives who have used consultancy services. These executives were asked to indicate which services they had used and the quality of them, using a scale of ‘very good’ to ‘very poor’.

Consultancies that received an above average number of recommendations received a gold rating, those that received fewer recommendations but were above average received a silver rating, and those firms which still received a significant number of recommendations from peers and clients were given a bronze rating. Firms with an insufficient number of recommendations were excluded.

“In a period of great upheaval, good advice is particularly valuable: among the more than 35,000 positive recommendations we received in our survey of clients and peers, your consultancy was frequently mentioned and stood out.”– James Bacon, UK Licensing Manager, Statista Research & Analysis.
