Alium Partners is going from strength to strength with a clear focus on our European, Commonwealth and global relationships, helping businesses face the new world. Many moons ago we had a mantra as the leading UK independent company in our sector – despite the strong competition in this market, as part of the Valtus Group we are now indeed the leading European provider, with one of the largest global networks.
Our strategy to bridge the gap into Europe under French ownership, allied with strong partners and the special relationship in the US, has set our sights for the future. We are building relationships globally and since the new year we have worked with several US businesses in the UK, helped others penetrate the Far East market and supported a significant integration project in the Middle East and in the UK we have had much success in the SME and tech innovation market. Busy times indeed.
As part of our investment, we are also delighted to welcome a new Managing Partner to the Alium and Valtus team in the UK. Olivier has more than twenty years of experience in the consumer goods sector and been involved in several transformation and integration projects during his senior roles; he has an international background allowing him to understand cultural dynamics and global challenges, speaking French, English, German and Spanish.
Olivier joined us from Puig – a French family-owned beauty and products business where he was leading their European business and significant P&L from London. A retail FMCG addition to our business leadership is really timely and his big brand and volume sales experience has quickly brought new skills to help some of our clients. It’s great to have him on board.
On behalf of everyone in Alium Partners and our French colleagues at Valtus, have a tremendous 2020 and we hope to work with you this year
