Slalom, a Seattle-headquartered consulting firm focused on strategy, technology and business transformation, has chosen Manchester as the location for its second UK office.

The firm helps clients address modern-day challenges associated with technology, data and people, working with solution providers including Amazon Web Services, Google, Salesforce and Tableau tackle ambitious projects and build new capabilities.

Through its London office, which opened in 2014, Slalom has established a reputation in the UK for successfully delivering impactful projects to private and public sector clients across numerous industries.

Based at Peter House, in the heart of Manchester’s innovation and academic district, Slalom is looking to tap into the city’s deep talent pool as well as invest in the development of its existing team members to strengthen its UK reputation.

The firm prides itself on building diverse teams of experienced professionals who have worked with consulting firms, digital agencies, start-ups and enterprises, and plans to employ 200 people in Manchester by 2025 – each of whom will benefit from an international network of more than 6,500 people.

Dave Williams, UK Country Managing Director, said: “Manchester is a city of digital enterprise with a wide range of strengths across industries including manufacturing, healthcare, utilities and consumer services; which perfectly complements Slalom’s breadth of expertise. We’re looking forward to collaborating with clients to shape their internal capabilities, building a team and making an impact on the local community.”

Tim Newns, Chief Executive of MIDAS – Manchester’s inward investment agency, said: “Greater Manchester is a hotbed for collaboration and innovation, making it the ideal location for pioneering businesses like Slalom. There are strong complementarities between Slalom and Greater Manchester’s efforts to collaborate with companies going through digital transformation and supporting them to grow within the region. Establishing operations within one of Europe’s largest digital and technology clusters will provide the consultancy firm with ample opportunities to join forces with the rapidly increasing number of world-leading brands that are choosing Manchester.”

Paul Squire, Managing Director – who will move from the London office to head up operations in Manchester, said: “I’m excited about working with our clients in the North West of England, helping them to deliver people-centric change, bring strategic solutions to life, and ultimately, to love their future.”
