Q5, the specialist organisation and business transformation consultancy, is expanding. On 5 October, the firm, with 100 people working across operations in the UK, US and Asia, has announced their merger with Maxxim, the London-based strategic change business.
Q5’s managing partner Olly Purnell said, “Maxxim has blazed a trail in the corporate development space for the last 15 years, and brings a flourishing Board level practice to Q5. In addition to their private sector work, they have been particularly strong in Sport and Higher Education. This is a hugely exciting opportunity.”
Claire Arnold, managing partner of Maxxim, joins Q5 as the firm’s first Chair. “It’s been tremendous fun growing Maxxim. By combining with Q5, we can make an even greater mark, serving our clients with enhanced capability and a deeper service offering and with the same positive energy.”
Q5 was launched in 2009 and supports blue chip clients by delivering organisation design and transformational change. The firm opened its US headquarters in New York at the beginning of 2013 and also operates in Hong Kong and Australia; the Sydney office opened last month. The merged firms will operate under the Q5 brand.
