A thriving MediaCityUK IT consultancy, Mason Advisory, is celebrating five years in business and a five times increase in turnover.

Mason Advisory has a growing reputation in the UK and globally as an IT specialist, renowned for its high quality consultants, specialist skills, and support through digital transformation projects and partnerships. It counts many well-known brands as customers, from sectors such as finance, life sciences, retail, FMCG, emergency services, health, energy, water, education, government and transport.

Earlier this year, the company was recognised by the Financial Times as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, and one of the leading management consultancies in the UK. It was awarded the Queen’s award for Enterprise in the international trade category, and was also recognised by Great Place to Work ®as a centre of Excellence in Wellbeing.

Steve Watmough, CEO at Mason Advisory says: “In the last five years, we have grown from a specialist player to a leading IT advisory company, competing with the industry heavyweights in the £8.2 billion UK management consultancy sector.We have grown revenue five times over and our success has been recognised with the landmark awards and accolades we have received. We are now looking to build on this success and strengthen our position and reputation in the marketplace.

“We’ve got exciting expansion plans, including a recruitment drive for consultants in the UK to support global clients. Skill requirements are becoming more complex and challenging and we are able to guide our clients through the digitalisation process, align ourselves with their business culture and deliver results that allow organisations to fast-track their digital transformation initiatives, and operate in a more agile manner to ultimately enhance customer and staff experiences.”

Fiona Czerniawska is founder and director at Source Global Research and one of the world’s leading commentators on the management consulting industry. She says:

“Digital transformation has been the main driver of growth in the IT services and consulting industry over recent years. Clients are increasingly keen to work with smaller, more specialised firms, such as Mason Advisory, that have deeper expertise than the bigger players, and can bridge the gap between technology and business. These firms find it easier to fit in within the client’s organisation in cultural terms. The clients’ main focus is to make sure that concrete results are delivered.”

Steve concludes, “Despite the uncertain, disruptive times we are in, I’m proud of the outstanding results our team has delivered and their hard work behind this achievement. Our success is down to the high calibre of consultants on the team and our shared desire to bring digital transformation and technological innovation to our customers around the world.”

The Mason Advisory brand was launched in May 2014, but the business has its roots as Mason Communications, which started in 1993, working with a range of clients from banks to MNOs.

With offices at MediaCityUK, Salford, and London, Mason Advisory provides IT consultancy and advisory services, solving complex business challenges through the intelligent use of IT resources.  Its range of advisory services includes IT strategy and transformation, sourcing, architecture, IT delivery, service management, operating model and organisational design.
