KPMG has been recognised with 2 awards by the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) in the annual ceremony which recognises and celebrates excellence in management consultancy.
KPMG picked up its first award in the ‘Operational Performance in the Private Sector’ category, for work undertaken on behalf of Nationwide. KPMG’s team was recognised for the way in which they helped improve cost efficiencies whilst driving up customer satisfaction. In a major cost optimisation programme the joint KPMG/Nationwide team were also noted as radical in the way they addressed every aspect of the business.
KPMG also won the ‘Technology’ award for the way in which the firm created a ‘mission critical’ computer system designed to manage the planning and co-ordination of national police resources.
Commenting on the wins, Mark Hutchinson, KPMG’s UK Head of Management Consulting, says: “I would like to congratulate all those at KPMG whose excellent work has been recognized at this year’s MCA awards. They have rightly been cited as exemplars to the industry for developing creative and innovative solutions, working closely in partnership with our clients in addressing many of their most complex challenges.”
Adrian Harkin, Lead Partner for Nationwide at KPMG, says: “Nationwide is the world’s largest building society, with a relationship with one in four households in the UK. The chance to help them with their programme over the past 2 years has been the most rewarding programme of my career to date and I am delighted that we have made a significant difference to Nationwide and their customers, delivering massive efficiencies and savings.”
The judges also acknowledged KPMG’s capabilities by highly commending the firm in 2 other categories. These included ‘finance and management’ for KPMG’s work with the London Development Agency and ‘innovation’ in recognition of the firm’s work with Musgrave.
Now in their 15th year, the MCA Awards are the benchmark of quality within the industry, showing how clients and consultants can work together to achieve better results.
