Slalom invests in UK growth, plans to add nearly 100 jobs in 2021.
LONDON, April 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Slalom, the modern consulting firm focused on strategy, technology, and business transformation, today announced a plan to significantly expand its United Kingdom presence in 2021 and beyond.
With offices in London and Manchester, Slalom will add nearly 100 product development, experience design, data, and Salesforce jobs across its UK locations. This increased investment is a response to client demand from companies in the UK and requests from clients in North America for increased support in the UK.
“Creating new and amazing ways to delight customers and employees has been a trend of recent years and has really taken a leap up the priority list in the past year,” said Dave Williams, Slalom UK general manager. “New ways of doing business, supported by new technology solutions, are driving a wave of change for us all. We’re excited to be part of it and make this investment in the UK.”
To help drive this purposeful growth, Todd Sink, a managing director at Slalom for the past 15 years, is relocating to London after 10 years at Slalom’s Seattle headquarters. Todd will lead Slalom’s UK go-to-market teams and will be focused on growing key client relationships across finance, retail, life sciences, and energy.
“I look forward to taking everything I’ve learned over the last 15 years—helping over 2,000 clients at all stages of their evolution, in over 30 markets in North America—to help grow our UK business,” said Sink.
Slalom UK has also hired Simon Cook as managing director of Slalom Build in the UK to drive the company’s ambition of being the leading product development provider in the country. Cook, who has been leading modern digital-delivery engagements for the last decade, will focus on scaling the UK Build team. Slalom Build blends design, product engineering, analytics, and automation to create the modern technology products of tomorrow.
