AAB’s existing consulting division will transfer to the new entity in order to provide a platform for rapid growth following a period of substantial development and considerable increase in demand for services.

Heading up AAB Consulting as Chief Executive is Bill Kane. Bill joined AAB as a Director in 2017 to develop and grow a full service consulting business across six key value streams, strategy, operations, human capital, supply chain, IT/digital and data analytics.  Prior to joining AAB, Bill was a Partner with PwC & Deloitte and Global Leader of IBM’s Business Services Operations Strategy practice.

At the same time Alasdair Green has been promoted to Consulting Director. Alasdair has a broad range of consulting experience and leads the delivery of UK wide and international client projects within the strategy, operations and human capital value streams. He will lead AAB Consulting’s Energy team, with a particular focus on advising Oil & Gas upstream and service businesses.

Commenting on these recent developments AAB Consulting Chief Executive Bill Kane said “As well as establishing an impressive in-house consulting team, which is continuing to expand with several key appointments pending, we also continue to work with our Associate Network of highly experienced consulting professionals. This dynamic combination of experience gives us a significant track record spanning a broad spectrum of industry sectors as we build a consulting business from Scotland. The consulting business will remain an integral part of the AAB group as we continue to work together across the firm to provide our clients with the very best value-added service.”

AAB Managing Partner Graeme Allan added “We are hugely excited about the growth prospects within AAB Consulting and this new business structure will provide us with the opportunity to grow rapidly in this space, working with strategic partners to deliver a growing number of consulting projects across the UK and internationally.”
