North West IT consultancy Mason Advisory is celebrating five years in business and a five times increase in turnover.

Based at MediaCityUK, Manchester, the firm provides support through digital transformation to customers across sectors including finance, life sciences, retail and emergency services.

“In the last five years, we have grown from a specialist player to a leading IT advisory company, competing with the industry heavyweights in the £8.2 billion UK management consultancy sector,” said Steve Watmough, CEO at Mason Advisory.

“We have grown revenue five times over and our success has been recognised with the landmark awards and accolades we have received. We are now looking to build on this success and strengthen our position and reputation in the marketplace.

“We’ve got exciting expansion plans, including a recruitment drive for consultants in the UK to support global clients.

"Skill requirements are becoming more complex and challenging and we are able to guide our clients through the digitalisation process, align ourselves with their business culture and deliver results that allow organisations to fast-track their digital transformation initiatives, and operate in a more agile manner to ultimately enhance customer and staff experiences.”

The Mason Advisory brand was launched in May 2014, but the business has its roots as Mason Communications which started in 1993.
