Q&A: A conversation with Dave Williams, Slalom’s Country Managing Director U.K.
May 10, 2017
As Dave Williams takes over the helm of our London-based business, we spoke with him about embarking on a new journey to grow and establish Slalom in the U.K. and Europe.
Welcome to Slalom! You’re at the helm of Slalom’s London office, which is the spearhead of our expansion in Europe. How do you see Slalom’s presence growing in the U.K.?
Our focus is on establishing an exceptional team and delighting our clients here in London, where the business environment continues to be vibrant and leads much of the economic decision-making for companies in Europe. Over time, we’ll look at our options for expanding to other cities in the U.K., Ireland, and multiple continental European locations. Like our differentiated Slalom model throughout North America, we’re serving clients locally, right where they are.
What attracted you to Slalom?
Slalom offered me the opportunity to build a business and team in the U.K. and Europe that will serve clients in the right way, with the right people, delivering amazing outcomes. This is a very special opportunity that I’m completely energised by. It provides opportunities for those who want to join a very ambitious and rapidly expanding consulting company, while offering clients a new alternative to the norm. We’re doing things differently. We’re building exceptional solutions. We’re fun to work with. We work quickly and embrace agile. I have an unwavering principle of doing what’s right for clients, always, and working with them directly to make decisions. I feel very at home with Slalom in that regard.
