New London Operation Expands Alsbridge’s European Presence Thursday 4 December 2014 PDF Print Alsbridge Inc., has announced an expansion of its UK operations in order to meet what it says is a surge in local demand for its sourcing advisory and network and benchmarking services. “The UK and Northern Europe market for IT, network and business process sourcing is one of the most advanced, vibrant and competitive in the world,” said Homan Haghighi, Director of Alsbridge and head of the new London office. “The decision to expand our operations here is a mark of Alsbridge’s long-term commitment to delivering insight, innovation and value to clients in the UK, mainland Europe and the Nordic countries.” London-based Alsbridge Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary that will operate alongside the already operational office Alsbridge GmbH in Frankfurt. Alsbridge says that the UK operation will draw on the company’s extensive proprietary data sets of global sourcing contracts to provide a full range of benchmarking and network services as well as sourcing advisory and vendor management support to clients. US-based Alsbridge was founded in 2003. Prior to this announcement, the firm has offered a limited range of services in the UK via a separate franchise which was established in 2005. “IT users and service providers in the UK and Northern Europe are demanding high performance, innovation and transformational change from their investments while minimising risk. Alsbridge has a proven consulting methodology based on global outsourcing and networking data built up over many years. This means that we have the strategic vision, project tools and operational detail needed to deliver meaningful change while minimising risk,” said Homan Haghighi. Alsbridge Limited launched the expanded UK operation on 1 December 2014 in London. About Alsbridge Inc.
