Global management consulting firm SDG Group has recently moved to a new office in the UK. From its new base in Tower 42, London’s third-tallest skyscraper, the business advisory aims at further facilitating its UK growth ambition.
With more than 300 consultants working from 16 offices in Europe, Middle East, Africa and America*, SDG Group is one of the larger advisory firms of the globe. The firm was founded in 1991, and has since remained close to its heritage, focussing on services at the intersection of business, innovation and IT, with a focus on business intelligence. The consulting firm in addition specialises in digital, big data and data analytics topics, offering a blend of IT solutions and consulting services.
To meet growing demand in the UK, SDG Group recently decided to move into a new office in London. The firms now resides in Tower 42, located at 25 Old Broad Street. Originally known as the National Westminster Tower** – built to house the National Westminster Bank's international division – the building was the tallest building in the City of London for 30 years, until it was surpassed by the Heron Tower in December 2009. Currently it ranks as the third-tallest skyscraper in the City of London and the eighth tallest in Greater London.
Today Tower 42 is multi-tenanted and comprises Grade A office space and restaurant facilities. Dozens of firms have an office space in the building, including law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, Samsung, Vertigo 42, Front Capital Systems and digital signage specialist RMG Networks, and since recently, also SDG Group. In a statement on its website, the firm says it is pleased to be located in a building with a “cutting edge architecture that combines well with our leading approach to business solutions”.

** The building was first occupied in 1980, and formally opened on 11 June 1981 by Queen Elizabeth II.
