Resources Global Professionals has named Mark Campbell as the new head of its European operations. Campbell joins from Hitachi Consulting, and prior to that he served as CEO of Hedra and partner at KPMG. At RGP, Campbell will be responsible for leading RGP's business model in Europe.
Global consulting firm Resources Global Professionals (RGP) was founded in 1996 by a team at Deloitte in the United States. Up to 1999 the business unit operated as a part of the Big 4 firm, yet in April of that year it split following a management-led buyout. In the early years the firm focused on the U.S. market, from 2001 onwards it began to expand geographically. Currently RGP* employs roughly 3,000 professionals in approximately 70 offices in more than 20 countries.
In Europe RGP has offices across all major markets, including the UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Switzerland and Scandinavia. Per the 1st of October, the European operations is being led by Mark Campbell, a British executive with more than 25 years of experience in the consulting industry. Most recently, he was with Hitachi Consulting as Head of Management Consulting and Sales for the EMEA Region. Before that he served as CEO of public sector management consultancy Hedra, and following its acquisition by Mouchel he headed the newly formed public sector business. Between 1989 and 2003 he worked for KPMG Consulting, where he was responsible for leading technology and business transformation programs for clients in various industries and in his last role served as Lead Partner for the civil government practice. Campbell started his consulting career with PA Consulting Group.
“I am very pleased that Mark has joined RGP to lead Europe," says Tracy Stephens, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of RGP. "Mark is a strategic thinker yet executes on the front line and has extensive experience building and growing businesses in the European area. He is people-focused, client-facing and enjoys creating and leading high performing teams by building capability and coaching those around him.”
Campbell, who holds a MBA from Warwick University and a MA in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from Oxford University, will be based in the firm’s London office (2-3 Eldon Street). In addition to leading the European management team – which also consist of among others Jeremy James (Managing Director UK FS) and Simon Collins (Managing Director UK GRC) – he will also work closely with the UK team. "I am excited to join RGP and look forward to working with the Company's European team to build our presence in all of our target markets and deliver innovative solutions to our clients," comments Campbell.
