Alsbridge, a global sourcing, benchmarking and transformation advisory firm, has announced the expansion of its global operations into the Australia and New Zealand market.
“The A/NZ region comprises a large and growing market of world-class businesses,” says Chip Wagner, CEO, Alsbridge.
“However, enterprises have traditionally had limited options in terms of advisory services to optimise business and IT operations and leverage emerging technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), data analytics and cloud.
“As operational efficiency and innovation become increasingly central to competitiveness, we are ideally positioned to help A/NZ businesses stay abreast of industry peers and global best practices.”
Alsbridge’s local efforts will be led by Senior Directors Dom Bower and David Snell, industry veterans with extensive global experience in shared services, IT and business process outsourcing advisory, vendor management, telecom services and procurement.
To deliver client engagements, the Sydney-based operation will leverage Alsbridge’s global resources as well as undertake “aggressive in-country hiring” to expand local capabilities.
Prior to joining Alsbridge, Bower and Snell were both Directors at KPMG Australia.
“I am delighted to join the global Alsbridge team and am excited by the opportunity to establish and grow our presence in the ANZ market,” Bower adds.
“Having worked closely for many years with executives in the region, I believe businesses will respond enthusiastically to Alsbridge’s value proposition and unique capabilities and service offerings.”
With over 300 consultants on four continents, Alsbridge has been a trusted advisor to over 40 percent of the Fortune 500 and currently advises over 200 clients a year on over $US11 billion in spend.
“The A/NZ businesses I’ve worked with are increasingly interested in opportunities to drive transformation, reduce costs and mitigate risk,” Snell adds.
“The combination of global experience and regional perspective that Alsbridge A/NZ brings to the table raises the competitive bar and gives regional enterprises an important new option to consider.”
