Rapidly expanding London-based consultancy YLD has appointed Tim Morgan to its advisory board. The former EY employee will work to advise the consultancy’s management as it looks to maintain its current growth trajectory.

The global software consulting market is expected to reach $382 billion by 2025. The growing demand for digitalisation in business processes and low start-up costs associated with software consulting services are expected to drive the growth of the market.

YLD is one of London’s fastest-growing software engineering consultancies, working with European brands such as The Economist, Trainline and Thomas Cook. The firm works to assist clients by augmenting their teams with experienced JavaScript engineers in Europe while deploying cutting edge technologies and software engineering practices.

With offices in the UK (London and Manchester) and Portugal (Porto and Lisbon), the IT consulting firm is growing rapidly – the software engineering and design consultancy lifted its revenues by 98% over the past year. As demand for digital transformation and software consulting continues to grow, the firm has expanded its expertise with the appointment of Tim Morgan as a new Board Advisor.

Having commenced his career in 1997 with a five year spell at Big Four firm EY, Morgan then moved into the insurance sector in 2002, joining Willis Insurance Group (today part of Willis Towers Watson). Over the past twelve or so years, Morgan worked as an executive, entrepreneur, investor and coach to business leaders and start-up founders. He founded Mint Digital (a London/New York software and design studio), and exited two businesses he founded: Picklive (sold to Sports Millions) and Stickygram (sold to Photobox). Currently, Morgan is a partner in ideas.fund, and serves as an investor for TRX, Penfold and Boomf.

Commenting on Morgan's appointment, a spokesperson of YLD said: "We are very excited to announce Tim has joined or team. He has helped many large corporations deliver digital products and has also led several startups from ideation through growth and in two cases to exit. Prior to founding Mint, Tim worked in mergers and acquisitions and has advised on fundraising and exits with value in excess of £200m. We look forward to working with Tim on YLD growth.”
