Management consultancy Q5 adds to Northern presence with new Leeds base
London-headquartered management consultancy Q5 has expanded into the North of England.
The company has opened an office in Leeds and tasked Iain Anstess, managing director of the new base, with spearheading growth in the city and surrounding areas.
The move, Q5 said, will enable it to meet an increasing demand for organisation design and development support from a growing list of Northern clients.
Outside London and Leeds, Q5 Partners LLP has teams on the ground in Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York and Sydney.
Managing partner Olly Purnell said: “We are celebrating our 10th year of trading and further expanding the Q5 network.
“Over the past 10 years, we have enjoyed working on projects in Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Liverpool.”
Olly continued: “We are always looking for better ways to serve our clients and hope that through our new Leeds office we can combine both our global and local expertise to best support our clients in the region.”
Roger Marsh OBE, chair of the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), said of the expansion: “I’m delighted the LEP Trade and Investment team were able to support Q5 in their location search, following an initial meeting at the Festival of Innovation in Hong Kong.
“I look forward to seeing the company grow at its new Leeds City Region base. It’s a great start to the year following a successful 2018, which saw 23 successful inward investment projects secured for the region creating 1,500 jobs.”
