We are thrilled to announce that Vendigital has been recognised as one of the UK’s leading management consultants by the Financial Times, for the fourth consecutive year.

The ‘UK’s Leading Management Consultants’ list recognises the UK’s leading management consultants based on recommendations by their clients and peers in 29 categories, with consultancies awarded gold, silver and bronze ratings according to how often they are recommended.
Ranking alongside some of the biggest names in the industry including McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, BCG, Accenture and the Big Four, Vendigital has attained a total of 10 medals achieving its first gold award in the Automotive category, silver in five categories, and bronze in four – including its first award for Digital transformation.

Livingbridge first invested in Vendigital in 2018, having identified the potential to build on its already advanced data capabilities, deep sector expertise, strong track-record, and innovative solutions.

Since then, Livingbridge has supported Vendigital in enhancing its tech platform and recruiting top talent in the form of Mark Humphries as chairman, Emma Charsley as chief operating officer and Rory Webster as chief financial officer, to aid in the development of the firm’s strategy and its growth in both existing and new markets.

As a result, Vendigital has strengthened its position as the leading technology-led consultancy in a rapidly-growing market, with its commitment to excellence reflected in three previous Financial Times rankings, as well as a prestigious MCA Commercial Excellence award in 2019.

Despite the impacts of COVID-19, Vendigital has continued to grow unhampered, leveraging its experienced team and well-invested platform to address the challenges engendered by supply-chain disruptions across the board.

Robyn Smith at Livingbridge, commented: “We are delighted with Vendigital’s success, which is a testament to the firm’s skilled management team and their commitment to forging innovative cost and operational strategy solutions in an ever-challenging environment”.

“We look forward to building on their excellent proposition by continuing to deploy our partner and consultant hiring programme and supporting the firm in exploring internationalisation options.”

Roy Williams, CEO at Vendigital, added: “I am thrilled with this latest ranking, which sees Vendigital achieve a top 20 spot for the second year running. It has been a pleasure to work with Livingbridge over the last three years and watch Vendigital go from strength to strength during our partnership.”
