PRESS RELEASE: Guy Sorrill appointed to the Board of the MCA
London, UK - 29th March 2019 – Today, we are delighted to announce that Guy Sorrill has been appointed to the board of the UK Management Consultancies Association (MCA) representing the MCA SME Committee, which Guy has been Chairman of since November 2018.
This progression to the MCA Board reflects Guy’s twelve-year association with the MCA, and his commitment to both the SME Consulting industry and the wider UK consulting industry.
Guy said: ‘I am very excited and pleased to have been voted onto the MCA Board and would like to thank the board and MCA CEO Tamzen Isacsson for their support. Having worked in the consulting industry for the past twenty years, I have been pleased to see the positive contribution the industry has made to the UK, and beyond. I am very much looking forward to further contributing to the direction of the MCA, the application of the MCA Consulting Excellence principles, and to further enhance the profile of the UK consulting industry. I am particularly keen to ensure there is a strong voice representing SMEs on the MCA Board, with SME consultancies making up 69% of the MCA membership’
Sysdoc is a proud and active member of the MCA and has held a long relationship with the association. We were among the first signatories of the MCA Consulting Excellence scheme in 2016, and since then, have continued to explore new ways to embed the nine principles of Consulting Excellence into how we operate internally and externally.
Many of our young consultants are active members of the Young MCA network, where we have promoted activities to encourage the personal development of these consultants at the beginning of their careers. We offer a council role to one of our younger consultants, on a twelve-month rotating basis. We are also heavily involved in several other MCA communities, attending events and contributing to the future direction of the organisation. Through these communities, we share in the responsibility to advance and build business trust in the consulting profession.
