Chief Executive Officer

2015 brought new challenges and opportunities for organisations in every industry. Many looked to PA for the groundbreaking solutions and innovative thinking they needed to respond. We worked with over 900 clients around the world to deliver exceptional results with lasting impact. Here are just a few highlights.
The PA team were great. They quickly bought into our vision and had the commercial and technical expertise to help us get CleanSpace™ from concept to market in under nine months. We are looking forward to working with PA on more projects in the future – they really know how to get difficult things done quickly.

The support PA gave us has been invaluable. Your insight, drive and energy got us to a position that we simply couldn't have achieved on our own.

One of the things that attracted us to PA was not only their consulting expertise, but also their ability to clarify and develop real-world, practical solutions, and show us how we could bring these to market.

The PA Raspberry Pi competition
Land Rover BAR (Ben Ainslie Racing)
A new generation of engineers is on the way, and I got to meet some of the best. This all happened at the finals of the PA Consulting Group's Raspberry Pi competition. This year's theme was healthcare and wellbeing, and I got a delightfully uplifting hour to have a look around the finalists' demonstrations.
Steve Bush, Technology Editor, Electronics Weekly
Our partnership with PA has gone from strength to strength, not only providing Teach First with crucial consultancy expertise relating to our organisational structure but also invaluable support and guidance to our teachers. With PA's support, we are reaching more pupils in low-income communities across the UK and ensuring that all children are able to unlock the benefits that a high-quality education can bring.
Brett Wigdortz, OBE, Founder and CEO, Teach First
We don't underestimate the challenge ahead. Over the course of 34 contests, Britain has never won the America's Cup – so we are going to make a lot of history when we bring the trophy home. But we realise that we need all the help that we can get. That's why we are delighted to have PA Consulting Group on board.
