JCM is a boutique advisory firm with both Local and Global capabilities. We work with a small carefully selected client roster to ensure we don't have conflicts of interest and will not provide the same services to more than one organisation of a similar type in the same geographic area. Recent clients our team have worked with include the leadership teams of Global Top 5 Professional Services firms, through to the CEO, HRD, FD, COO's of companies of all sizes and maturity operating in the B2B, B2C and services industries.
We have worked in 38 different global geographies, but we are equally at home working round the corner with a new local business start-up.
For larger or specialist projects, such as Diversity, we have a network of trusted associates and associated companies with whom we have worked with for many years and know provide our level of service to our clients.
