We see great opportunities to serve Catalysts’ clients even better internationally and for Catalyst to contribute to Alium by increasing its presence in our market too.”

Presence on the international market is increasingly important in the growing industry of interim management, as the demand for globally experienced managers increases. This international partnership will create a wealth of new job opportunities across Europe, as well as brand new talent pools across all sectors.

Mike Hollin, CEO at Alium Partners said:

“The strategic alliance with Catalyst is fantastic news, not just for Alium, but also for our network of interims and clients in the UK and around the world.  They will now be able to take advantage of the brand new opportunities that this agreement will bring and have increased access to the Scandanvian market. We look forward to working in partnership with Catalyst in 2012 and helping increase their presence in the UK and beyond.”

Catalyst’s extensive experience of the Scandinavian market combined with Alium Partners’ excellent standing in the UK will result in a partnership that will strengthen both parties globally and be highly significant for all stakeholders, both in terms of expertise and gaining a wider network of highly experienced interim executives.
