Alsbridge, a global specialist in the area of sourcing, has opened a new office in Toronto, Canada. With the new office it aims at better serving its growing Canadian client base. The focus will in the coming period mainly be on clients in the oil and gas, financials, high tech and government sectors.
Founded in 2003 as the Trowbridge Group, Alsbridge has grown to become one of the leading specialists in the field of sourcing. The name change from Trowbridge Group to Alsbridge occurred in 2005, after it merged with London-based ALS Consulting. Currently the consulting firm has roughly 150 consultants spread across seven offices in North America, Europe and Asia.
“We are experiencing significant growth in Canada, including a large number of firms headquartered in Toronto, which we attribute to favorable market conditions and our proven ability to deliver outstanding value,” says Chip Wagner, CEO of Alsbridge. “Canadian companies, domestic and multinational, look to us to help them reduce costs, improve operations, and get more value from their vendors.”
The Candian office wil be led by Robert Joslin, who has more than a decade of experience advising Canadian firms with identifying and developing sourcing solutions for IT, data centers, call centers, human resources, Finance & Accounting and other impact areas.
“Most of our clients in Canada are tapping us for counsel and best practices on sourcing strategies, particularly for IT and business process outsourcing, as well as network sourcing and management, transformation management, benchmarking, and vendor management and governance,” says Joslin.
