Consulting firm Cambridge Consultants has moved its US headquarters to an office in Boston in the centre of medical technology heartland. With this move, the firm wants to foster innovation development as well as its growth plans; within the next three years, Cambridge Consultants aims at tripling its US headcount to 100 professionals.
Cambridge Consultants is a global product development engineering and technology consulting firm that was founded in 1960 by three Cambridge graduates: Tim Eiloart, Rodney Dale, and David Southward. Their goal: “to put the brains of Cambridge University at the disposal of the problems of British industry and to provide solutions to real world problems”. The firm that serves start-ups and blue-chip multinationals has offices and development laboratories in Cambridge, UK, Boston, USA, and an office in Singapore. Until 1972, the company was privately run, after which it became part of management consulting firm Arthur D. Little. In 2002, the management of the firm bought the company back through a management-buy-out backed by technology consulting firm Altran, and became part of the Altran Group.
Recently, Cambridge Consultants moved its US headquarters from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Boston, to an office that lies in the centre of medical technology heartland. The firm decided to relocate to a venue that is nearly twice the size of its former office, to nurture innovation development and design capabilities. “We are thrilled to move today to our new office – a space that provides unparalleled opportunity for growth and innovation for our talented staff. Every inch of this space was thoughtfully designed to support how we work at Cambridge Consultants, and it represents our blend of technology and engineering excellence with user-focused design,” says David Bradshaw, General Manager of Cambridge Consultants in the United States.
Moreover, the company wanted an office that would support their continued growth plans. Cambridge Consultants has set the goal to triple its US staff in the next three years from 32 employees to 100, with an emphasis on BioMed technology professionals. This autumn the firm will launch an aggressive recruitment campaign to grow its US team. “We look forward to adding intelligent, passionate people to our Boston team and continuing to drive world-class innovation,” states Bradshaw.
