A Great Start to 2014, Our 25th Year!
"2014 will be a year of exciting changes and strong results" states Founder and Group CEO Mike Garlick.
We had an excellent 2013, with turnover figures up 10% from 2012, and we are predicting an even stronger performance this year. Demand from clients across all regions and all sectors is already high, with many clients poised to adopt a project based pricing model that will cement our partnerships over the long term.
Oil and Gas – our newest division – is gathering pace following the opening of our Malaysian office in 2013. We've started working on projects for several leading clients in the region, including Shell and Exxon and will be looking to grow our client base further throughout the year. We're currently hiring additional consultants in Kuala Lumpur in anticipation of this.
In Europe, activity across the German market is high across all operating sectors, and we are hoping to bring forward our plans to open an office in Frankfurt to the second quarter of this year.
"With economic confidence growing throughout Europe, particularly in Germany, I see this year as a return to the rapid growth of the pre-recession era for Michael Bailey Associates.
We have done a lot of work throughout 2013 to enhance our offering to clients, and I'm confident that our strong consultancy ethos will enable us to win business from our competitors. It will be all the more satisfying to improve on our outstanding 2013 result in our 25th year in business."
As always, Mike puts the Group's success down to the commitment and passion shown by his employees.
"It's all about the quality of the people we have, from the guys on the front line looking after our clients and contracting consultants, to the people behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly. I believe in rewarding hard work and commitment, and will be making sure we celebrate our 25th year in style!"
