Argus performance partners in Portugal joins The WIL Group
Argus Performance Partners (http://argusperformancepartners.com/), which offers consultancy services aimed to improve companies’ performance, has launched one of Portugal’s first comprehensive interim management practices.
To support its debut, Argus has joined The Worldwide Interim Leadership Group (WIL Group) – helping to manage working best practice, and offering international interim management reach.
Argus Performance Partners specialises in areas including business processes, costs, and company culture. The company’s objective is to bridge the gap between mainstream consulting services and standard interim management supporting business transformation and performance improvement activities by assigning an interim manager to the transformation projects. And subsequent to Argus’ membership, The WIL Group will be extending the organisation’s reach across Southern Europe.
Paulo Leal, associate partner at Argus, comments: “The interim management market in Portugal is in its infancy, and is now beginning to appear as an opportunity for privately owned companies, investment banks and private equity funds seeking professional management. We are excited to be one of the first companies to provide interim management services in the country. We are confident that we have the ability and the network to help create change through our new interim management service.
“We spent some time looking for an experienced international partner to help speed up the process and to provide access to methodologies, frameworks and an extensive resources pool. So we were delighted to come across the WIL Group, and knew immediately that we wanted to become part of the organisation. ”
Patrick Laredo, chairman of WIL Group, added: “We’d like to welcome Argus, a renowned Portuguese consulting firm with international scope and the ambition to add an executive interim arm to its operations. We believe that Argus is strengthening the transformation management skills of WIL Group in Southern Europe as well as on a broader scale. And – by the same token – the company will benefit from our knowledge in setting-up executive interim activities – taking advantage of WIL Group’s unique global talent pool.”
