Gate One, the digital and business transformation consultancy, today announces that it has completed the next phase of its international expansion programme, extending its geographical footprint to Ireland and the US. The consultancy now operates in four countries, including France and the UK, where it is headquartered.
Tim Phillips, managing partner at Gate One, said: “We are delighted to announce the latest chapter in Gate One’s extraordinary growth story. Our distinctive approach to consulting combined with the experience and know-how of consultants with a deep understanding of their respective markets means greater choice and opportunity for those organisations looking for a compelling alternative to traditional consultancy services on national and international assignments.”
To support its expansion, Gate One has made a number of key leadership hires including the addition of country leads Laurent Fauroux and Anthony Gaffney. As well as building independent client relationships, they will work closely with the Havas villages within their regions to provide a complementary portfolio of services to Havas clients.
Gate One joined the Havas group in 2019, combining its leading-edge transformation expertise with Havas’ strategic marketing, creative and communications know-how, to provide integrated digital, marketing and business transformation services to its clients.
“With 316 offices in 75 countries, a key factor in our decision to join Havas was the opportunity to leverage the group’s global reach,” said Tim. “Their established presence in our chosen countries provides us with a strong platform for growth and, in the case of France and Ireland, allows us continued access to mainland Europe following Brexit.
“Our country teams have got off to a flying start and are already providing business transformation services to organisations across a range of industries looking for a different type of consulting offer,” said Tim. “This is just the beginning of our international journey and we look forward to seeing the shape of things to come.”
