CYLAD Consulting expands into interim management services

19 October 2020 Consultancy.eu

CYLAD Consulting has expanded its service portfolio to include interim management offerings. 

The expansion into the new segment builds on the firm’s September acquisition of Seestatt Consulting & Interim Management, a Swiss provider of experienced interim managers and consultants. Seestatt was founded in 1989, and has since grown into one of the leading on demand interim management platform in Switzerland, and the DACH region.

According to Sébastien Chaussoy, who founded CYLAD Consulting together with Paul Archer in 2007, the deals marks a “transformational acquisition” for the 150-strong consulting firm. “It extends our services from traditional consulting to also include interim support, enabling us to provide an end-to-end offering for the business and digital transformation demands of our clients.” 

CYLAD Experts - What we do differently

Meanwhile, the senior network of Seestatt (~200 associated experts) will reinforce CYLAD Consulting’s C-level network and capabilities, and inject a wealth of experience and track record to its propositions. Combined, the two firms specialise in among others strategy, reorganisation, restructuring, digital transformation, supply chain performance, project management, functional reengineering, performance improvement and innovation. 

From an industry perspective, CYLAD Consulting focuses on eight sectors: aerospace, defence, pharmaceutical & life sciences, healthcare, energy, electronics, transportation and professional services.

As part of the integration, CYLAD Consulting will rebrand Seestatt Consulting & Interim Management as CYLAD Experts. The new operation will be led from the Paris and Zurich offices – the firm’s other offices are based in Toulouse, Hamburg, Melbourne and Montreal

Earlier this year, Arthur D. Little closed two deals that helped it add an interim management offering, as well as an on-demand platform. Meanwhile, last year expertence, a German provider of interim managers and independent consultants, joined US-origin player RGP.
