Georgeson announces major restructure and expansion

As a result of continued international growth, the Georgeson group of businesses is delighted to announce a collective transition to a single company, Georgeson Group (Europe) Ltd. As of today, October 1st 2008, four former limited companies - Spa Developments, CM Design Consultants, Georgeson Worklife and BigRed Creative - will become brands trading within Georgeson Group (Europe) Ltd.

Georgeson Group (Europe) Ltd offers interior design and business consultancy in six key sectors: creative, healthcare, hospitality, retail, spa and workplace, as illustrated at www.georgesongroup.com. The restructure will see Directors of the former businesses become directors of Georgeson Group (Europe) Ltd. These Directors - Alan Georgeson, John Patience, Mark Brunjes, Nick Lyons, Davie Rae and Dan Callegari - will also be joined by Nick Hull, who has been appointed as Group CEO.

Commenting on the restructure Nick Hull explains, ‘the collective strength of each of the design, consultancy and creative businesses has helped us achieve significant growth over the last year. We are increasingly working together to serve client’s business evolution requirements, and it makes sense to restructure accordingly. By joining forces as Georgeson Group (Europe) Ltd, we will further improve our efficiency and cost effectiveness internally, allowing us to pass on performance and cost benefits to many clients. We will be able to communicate a clearer message across the board, and we will simplify administration for our customers, suppliers and partners. We are delighted to be moving forward as one team, and look forward to major business expansion and growth in 2009.’

Georgeson is also continuing its expansion into the UAE, where CEO John Patience and the team have won major business creating facilities with a value in excess of $2bn over the next 3 years. Meanwhile, Alan Georgeson has relocated to the US where 2 acquisition targets will be announced shortly to develop the ongoing growth in foundations within America.

The Georgeson Group currently operates from offices and design studios in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, New York and South Florida. The Group has a wealth of highly satisfied and notable international clients including Cigna, De Vere, Radisson SAS, Jumeirah, Starwood, Scottish & Newcastle, Diageo, Cult, and most recently, the offices of Tony Blair, to name but a few.
