Proxima Group

Headquartered in London and Chicago, Proxima is a world-leading specialist procurement consultancy and part of Bain & Company. We service clients in the private and public sector, helping them with procurement, supply chain and supply chain sustainability challenges.

Our clients are typically large complex businesses with a variety of complex challenges. They are mostly > £500m in revenues and we count a number of Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 amongst our clients at any one time.

For most of these organisations, around 70% of their revenues are spent with 3rd party suppliers. We help them to spend this money wisely. Our work predominantly sits in one of two areas; optimising costs or transforming what procurement does and how procurement operates.

Our blend of practical knowledge and consulting skills are carefully managed to create a delivery team that can quickly understand business and individual challenges and shape practical solutions that will stick. Above all, we are famous for our delivery.

We save our clients billions annually, but also deliver positive change across themes like digital, resilience, sustainability, and innovation, demonstrating how procurement can deliver both short term value and long-term organisational health.
