Management consultancy Analysys Mason has appointed John Alexander as Non-Executive Chair. As Chair of the Board he will play a key role supporting the management team and investors as the company looks to continue its strong growth trajectory.

Founded in 1985, Analysys Mason serves clients with four key consulting offerings: strategy, transaction support, business transformation and regulation & policy. The London-headquartered consulting firm also has offices in Bonn, Cambridge, Dubai, Dublin, Hong Kong, Kolkata, Lund, Madrid, Manchester, Milan, New Delhi, New York, Oslo, Paris, Singapore and Stockholm.

Last year, the firm reported it had grown to 400 consultants and staff in 15 countries, and generated $90 million in revenues during its latest financial year. As it looked to build on this momentum, it secured new backing, with management and investor Bridgepoint Development Capital acquiring the firm at an enterprise value of £210 million.

As Analysys Mason seeks to put this new backing to use in the coming year, it has installed a new Chair. John Alexander arrives with the firm bringing significant experience to the role.

“I am very pleased that John Alexander has joined Analysys Mason. His extensive complementary experience will greatly benefit our future growth ambitions”, said Bram Moerman, Global CEO of Analysys Mason.

Alexander is currently also the incumbent Chair of HKA, where he supported the management team following the initial carve-out sponsored by Bridgepoint through to its recent sale to PAI Partners. He also holds the role with PA Consulting, where he worked with the management team and investors Carlyle – helping to grow the company and secure further private equity-style investment from Jacobs, when Carlyle exited.

He has also previously spent time as CEO and then Chair of  he led ERM through three private equity-backed investment cycles and MBOs securing strong returns and attractive investments from and for PE investors. Notably, the ERM Partners reinvested at each event and retained some 40% of the equity in the business over this ten-year period. These experiences mean he is well positioned to help Analysys Mason make the most of its own private-equity style investment from Bridgepoint.

Alexander added, “I am delighted to be joining Analysys Mason and look forward to supporting Bram and the management team as they pursue the exciting growth opportunities that lie ahead.”
