Retail specialist Rawls & Co has formed alliances with French design group Saguez and Partners and Sydney consultancy Edge Interior Design. The move is part of a plan by the London consultancy to create several global links.
Rawls & Co already has informal links with several UK consultancies and now aims to form further partnerships in the US and Europe in the future.
“These are the first steps in a number of connections we are making around the world,” explains Rawls & Co managing director Adam Rawls.
“It not only makes sense for the Rawls brand, but also for our resource unit echochamber.com. We need to be able to communicate information and exchange ideas through our links internationally,” he adds.
Saguez and Partners general chief executive officer Olivier Saguez says: “Both Rawls and Saguez and Partners believe in shared access to information and knowledge. In the midst of the fastest changing period in history, the best consultancies will be those that have access to truly local knowledge but on a global scale and at high speed.”
Edge managing director James Odlin says of the partnership with Rawls: “The opportunity to share quality information and ideas will benefit both our companies.”
