RENO, Nevada, May 16, 2011 /CNW/ -- The Alta Group and Invigors -- premier providers of equipment leasing and asset finance advisory services -- today announce that they have formed Invigors EMEA LLP as part of The Alta Group, a global consultancy.
Invigors EMEA combines the wide-ranging complementary skills and geographic coverage of the former businesses in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, augmented by the powerful team of leading advisors that constitute Alta worldwide. This uniquely positions Invigors EMEA within the region and will strengthen the services that it offers to its clients and those of The Alta Group worldwide, which include many of the world's leading lessors, asset finance companies, equipment manufacturers, vendors and service providers.
"The demand for global knowledge and resources has never been stronger in our industry," said John Deane, the CEO and a principal founder of The Alta Group 20 years ago. He said many industry leaders are realizing that business models must change in order to foster growth, particularly after the deep recession, and meet the challenges of fast-changing technology and a new regulatory environment.
Invigors EMEA provides a broad and comprehensive array of strategic support services that include consulting; corporate restructuring; strategic marketing; research; legal support services; mergers and acquisitions; tax, regulatory and accounting services; business process re-engineering; sales performance management; learning and development; and vendor and captive programs.
Invigors EMEA has seven UK-based Partners - Chris Boobyer, Richard Guilbert, Malcolm Ogle, Mike Roberts, Richard Ryan, Marc Tendler and George Tonks, together with strong business relationships throughout EMEA, including Benelux, Central and Eastern Europe, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. It intends to increase its pan-European coverage in the near future.
Invigors EMEA comprises highly experienced, senior executives with many years of practical and strategic experience across the equipment leasing and asset finance spectrum and who are recognized as some of the most knowledgeable and thoughtful experts in the global industry.
This strategic step is further progress in the expansion of the global consultancy with local resources. All of Alta's regions are closely aligned and are now coordinated by a worldwide Management Committee with members from the USA, Canada, China, EMEA and Latin America.
Chris Boobyer and Malcolm Ogle, Invigors EMEA Partners, explained the rationale for the new partnership: "Many of us have had a competitive business relationship for a number of years and we are delighted to now have this opportunity to combine our knowledge and skills to enhance our portfolio of services to our many clients as part of The Alta Group, with its unique, specialist and global capabilities," Boobyer said.
"We are optimistic about the industry's future, both in EMEA and in the regions that The Alta Group serves," Ogle added. "The Industry's needs are changing and our strengthened presence in EMEA comes at the right time in this developing economic cycle. We are actively planning for the future and gearing up to provide the resources necessary for clients to achieve their local and international goals."
