The arrival of a new team of procurement experts has enabled H&Z Management Consulting to launch its first dedicated office in the United Kingdom.

Founded in 1997, H&Z Management Consulting has since implemented over 3,500 successful projects to clients across Europe and beyond. With over 600 consultants, working from 14 offices, the firm specialises in strategy, performance, procurement, transformation and sustainability services.

The company has 10 offices across Europe, with the UK now adding to its footprint. The launch builds on the team hire of nine consultants from Procura Consulting.

“We are delighted to welcome the team from Procura Consulting, to add to our growing consulting team. This is a strategic pivot point for our business as we expand both our global footprint and deepen the procurement expertise we offer to clients,” said Harald Enz, Managing Partner at H&Z.

By launching its own London office, H&Z will be able to provide its UK, European and international clients both on-the-ground support, and supply chain and procurement knowledge. Led by Richard McIntosh, Brendan McVeigh and Ben Kitchen, the nine strong team has extensive experience in procurement strategies, cost reduction, value creation, transformation, and sustainability.

The team also includes professionals Tim Murray, Lloyd Isgrove, Jay Saujani, Hannah Cutler, Megan Teagle and Evan Smith – with experience from over 200 projects between them in the manufacturing, industrials, healthcare, services, pharma and life sciences, retail, tech and financial services sectors.

Enz said, “The opening of our London office and the addition of Richard McIntosh, Brendan McVeigh and Ben Kitchen to lead our UK procurement consulting services demonstrates our commitment to our multi-national clients as they rely on H&Z to transform their procurement organisations through cost optimisation, digitisation and sustainable procurement.”

Prior to the move, H&Z did have a UK presence by proxy. As part of The Transformation Alliance – a coalition of independent European consultancies, which partner to provide a global network of expertise and implementation capabilities – H&Z was supported by the four UK offices of Q5, in Leeds, Cardiff, Farnborough and London.

Headquartered in Munich, H&Z has hubs in Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland, as well as the US, Australia, China, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia.
