TDA 2022 Advisory/Consultancy: Operations & Technology winner: Holland Mountain

by Alice Murray 11 August 2022

One judge described Holland Mountain’s services as ‘life changing’. Such a strong endorsement supports the judges’ high praise for the consultancy’s culture and offering. On top of the impressive services they provide to clients, the judges admired Holland Mountain’s holistic support for the wider industry - beyond just their clients. Judges felt the team really understands the market they are serving and are always available to talk through challenges.

Holland Mountain sets itself apart from other consulting firms by the values of its team. “Our values are why 70% of our projects are follow on work for existing clients, and why 90% of our new projects are the results of referrals and recommendations from our clients and from other private equity industry participants,” says the team.

The firm prides itself on delivering real business value. “We prefer to focus in on specific areas where we know we can quickly add significant business value and deliver change incrementally at a pace organisations can absorb. We know broad, companywide strategy exercises are costly & time consuming, and lead to wide-ranging recommendations that are difficult to action, ultimately providing questionable benefits,” they explain.

Delivering results quickly and efficiently is also an important goal for Holland Mountain. “Leveraging our knowledge of the industry & best practice operating models, we spend our time focused on a firm’s nuanced requirements and making specific recommendations to achieve their strategic objectives,” comments the team.

Finally, the consultancy seeks to build genuine partnerships with clients to support ongoing success. “We ensure your team is setup to maintain the change once Holland Mountain’s work is finished.” This means working collaboratively with clients, and ensuring they have all the knowledge required to maintain the change.
