Food consulting firm Prof. Consulting Group has expanded its European team with Andy Adcock, who is based in the UK. Director and Founder Debra Field said the move comes in response to international “client demand amid a disruptive landscape”.

Field continued, “Andy is the perfect addition to the Prof. Consulting Group as he brings a proven track record at the highest level of retailing.”

Adcock specialises in commercial topics, such as sales excellence, innovation and business development; as well as product development, private label investments and growth, and supply chain optimisation. Having spent more than two decades in the retail sector, he spent the last five years helping at Asda become the first UK private label food brand to remove artificial ingredients, and Marks & Spencer to win food business to retailer of the year, on three consecutive occasions.

He has participated in these engagements as an independent consultant, but Adcock has also as a Senior Advisor of one of the world’s largest strategy consultancies. Adcock was affiliated with Boston Consulting Group, supporting the firm’s engagements in the food sector. Now at Prof. Consulting Group, Adcock has been appointed an Associate and Transformation & Improvement Expert.

Field added, “Our focus is on helping busy clients achieve success, redefine their business development and increase their market penetration, all critical to their long-term success. Andy agrees, he goes further and says that ‘part of thinking differently is learning to see differently’.”

Prof. Consulting Group is a Melbourne-based consulting firm that helps players in the food and grocery chain with growth strategy, management, operations and the delivery of change. Founded in 2019, the firm has quickly expanded beyond its native market, and now has a growing team in Europe, which consists of associates based in Germany and the UK, among others. For example, last year, Prof. Consulting Group welcomed Annie Dunne to its British associate network.
