19 November 2020

OC&C Strategy Consultants announces Will Hayllar as its new Global Managing Partner.

Will joined OC&C in 2000 and has most recently held the position as UK Managing Partner, and prior to this led the international Consumer Goods practice. He has been elected as the Global Managing Partner by the Partnership, and takes up the role with immediate effect. This is a newly created position which combines the roles of Integrated Offices Managing Partner and International Manager Partner, reflecting the completion of OC&C’s transition to an integrated global partnership.  Will succeeds David Krucik (IOMP) and James George (IMP) who have completed their respective terms and now return their full focus to serving clients as senior members of the OC&C Partnership.

Will will lead OC&C’s continued growth as the leading global strategy boutique.

Will Hayllar said:

“It is a great honour to have been elected as the new Global Managing Partner, having joined OC&C in 2000 and enjoyed the opportunities that our continued growth has provided. I am hugely excited to be taking on this role at a time of such opportunity for the business.”

“At a time when others are diversifying we find that our strategy focused model is increasingly differentiated as a proposition for clients who need high quality strategic solutions founded on robust analysis. It’s equally differentiated for talent seeking a home that is focused on strategic work which provides such stimulation and development and where they can be part of continuing to build a truly special firm.”

“The transformation of OC&C, led by David and James in recent years, has turbo-charged the potential of our model enabling us to work seamlessly around the world and bring together the best talent for each client. The disruption wrought by Covid has only reinforced the strength of our model, with clients more in need than ever of fundamental strategic thinking to help them navigate the dramatic changes and new opportunities this disruption has created.”

Will Hayllar continued:

“I am committed to continuing to build a highly successful firm that is the best home for top quality strategy consulting talent and offers unparalleled strategic advice to our clients.”
