The 2023 MCA Awards saw 30 consultancies share the spoils – with mid-sized firms matching the achievements of some of the industry’s largest players throughout the night. One of the newest firms to be rubbing shoulders with the sector’s top table was Enfuse Group – which picked up the prestigious prize for Best New Consultancy.

Founded in 2015 by Graeme Curwen and Harry Vazanias, Enfuse Group set out with the goal of building a consultancy that would help its clients become top performers through digital and IT, as well as being a great place to work. Over the last eight years, the firm has grown to more than 40 consultants, with a thriving ecosystem of associates and partner firms – helping it to work both in the UK and internationally, with some of the world's most recognised companies to help them in their digital transformations.

In recognition of this success, the Management Consultancies Association’s annual showpiece event – the MCA Awards – has lauded Enfuse Group. In the individual categories, consultant Joe Taylor was recognised for his outstanding client work by being nominated as a finalist for Team Leader Consultant of the Year. That was topped, though, when the group received the Best New Consultancy award.

Speaking on the triumph, co-founder and CEO Graeme Curwen remarked, “This award is fantastic recognition for all the incredible work our entire company delivers. Not only our client-facing consultants but our non-client facing people too. Everyone has made a huge contribution to this achievement. It's a true testament to all the hard work everyone at Enfuse Group puts in every day both internally and with our amazing clients. Thank you to our amazing people, clients and to the MCA for being such a force for good in our industry.”

The Best New Consultancy Award is an award open to all consulting firms, including non-MCA members, which have been operating for seven years of less when submissions for entry open, a year before the ceremony. In its last year of eligibility for the prize, Enfuse Group fended off the competition thanks to its “strong track record of working with some of the world’s most recognised brands”, according to a release from the firm. These included engagements across a number of sectors including retail, hospitality, FMCG, education, and legal.

The MCA’s judging panel particularly commended Enfuse Group for their values-centric, hugely energetic approach and having strong demonstrations of repeat business. Something which Curwen added was “testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and our ability to attract top talent in the consulting industry.”

Elsewhere on the big night, PwC and KPMG picked up the highest number of wins and highly commended finishes – with 12 and 11 nods respectively. But the night saw firms beyond the Big Four very well represented too, with experts from Mott MacDonald and North Highland scooping the prestigious Consultant of the Year and Project of the Year categories respectively.
