Collinson Grant

Collinson Grant has been helping companies to integrate acquisitions and restructure businesses since the early 1980s. We help firms all over Europe, in the United States and more widely, to reduce costs, improve performance and profit, and manage people. Our approach builds long-term relationships.

A few solid principles have sustained our business over the years:

  • to focus on our essential skills – supported by robust concepts and proven methodologies and practices
  • to employ only experienced line managers with deep operational and financial experience and expertise
  • to offer a stable and reliable partner
  • to work collaboratively with clients.

3,500 consultancy assignments for over 950 clients over 40 years have one thing in common – every client is connected by a previous assignment – most typically a recommendation, enduring relationship or project.

Our emphasis is on results and value-for-money. We expect to give a first class return on the investment in us. We do not recommend action unless we are sure that the outcome will be worth it. We are not afraid to give bad news, or to champion ideas that may not be welcome.

Many of our clients have operational assets and supply networks around the world. We know how to restructure and relocate operations, redesign organisations, improve performance, boost the effectiveness of supply chains, analyse the value chain, adopt lean processes and new technologies, and plan shared services.

Our work often involves restructuring and redesign of organisations and operations. In such cases our operational, project management and HR / employment law capabilities means we can bring all of the necessary expertise to achieve a successful transaction and subsequent transition.

Consultancy Service

Our work usually focuses on organisation, process, people, and costs. We use this simple framework to manage complex assignments and to support managers on smaller, more focused projects. We help them:

  • to restructure and integrate, after acquisitions or to improve profits
  • to optimise costs. We make systematic analyses of overheads, direct costs, and the profitability of customers and products. This helps managers to understand complexity and take firm steps to reduce it
  • to improve operations and the end-to-end supply chain. We examine every process and contact to improve efficiency and service and reduce risk
  • to set up financial and managerial controls. We create robust systems to improve decision making and reduce risks
  • to refine business processes and introduce lean practices. We analyse and improve how work is done, and use new ways to create change and make it stick
  • to manage people. We advise on rewards, guide managers on employee relations and employment law, and help them get better performance from people or manage redundancy.
