A new automotive consultancy, Elevenci, has been launched to provide manufacturers, fleet and leasing providers, and finance houses with access to a panel of experts.
The business aims to help automotive companies devise, implement and manage complex strategies and transformation programmes during a critical period of decision-making and investment for the industry.
Elevenci’s leadership team consists of John Waring as managing director; Mike Walters as managing consultant; Gary Elliott as client development director; and consultant Andrew Shaw.
Together with its diverse panel of associates – including well-known industry experts Steve Gowler, Robert Wastell, Gabi Whitfield, Ged O’Neill, Steve Beattie and Bryan Marcus – Elevenci will deliver everything from strategic reviews to technology-enabled transformation programmes, all the way through to supplier selection and delivery of projects.
“Historically, the industry has had to deal with some significant and far-reaching issues – including globalisation and emissions legislation – but never has it had to cope with so many diverse, competing challenges and opportunities occurring at the same time,” said Waring. “You could say the industry faces an existential crisis.
“This year will be a critical one for the industry; the decisions made in the next six to 12 months will have a definitive and seismic influence on the commercial success of the industry, certainly for the next three to five years and probably well beyond that.”
Elevenci is offering a full suite of services including strategic consultancy, transformation and delivery leadership, supplier selection, project health checks, research, insights and interim management alongside ‘out of the box’ products and frameworks.
