International professional services group R&G Global Consultants has added two new senior members to its London team. David Villar has taken on the role of Senior Consultant, while Nick Sumner assumes the position of Business Development Manager.

Supply chains represent a key aspect of business performance, and as digital disruption continues to creep into every industry, many businesses and their customers and clients are upping their transformation efforts involving their supply chains. As a growing number of supply chain leaders look to up their digitisation, demand for consulting in the sector is growing, with consulting firms working to position themselves to benefit from this glut in work.

R&G Global Consultants, a boutique management consultancy that specialises in supply chain and operations, has been working consistently to grow its global footprint in recent years. Founded in 2004, the international firm has since opened new offices in Sao Paulo and Bangkok, and Copenhagen, among others, in a bid to improve its services to clients, of which the majority are corporates and multinationals.

The Netherlands headquartered company, which was founded by Dutchman Piet van Abeelen and Frenchman Christian Mertz, also boasts a rapidly expanding UK team. Most recently, the consultancy has welcomed two senior members to its London office. David Villar has arrived as a Senior Consultant, and will be helping clients in project execution, while Nick Sumner has joined as a Business Development Manager, and will boost support of the firm’s expanding network.
