Building on its continuing success in international markets, consultancy WYG has registered a subsidiary company in Croatia, opened a new office in Bosnia & Herzegovina, and is now in the process of registering a subsidiary company in South Africa . The company has also restructured its global businesses to enable it to offer the full range of its specialist services to clients around the world.
Michael Tatham, the British Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina, officially opened the new office in Sarajevo and said it was a pleasure to see WYG, a UK and international company, creating a solid base in Sarajevo.
“WYG shows real commitment to investment and development, which is good not just for this UK based company, but also Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is the perfect way to show the British and other international companies that Bosnia and Herzegovina is becoming a safer and better place for investment,” he added.
WYG already has a strong international presence and continues to grow its overseas revenue by c20 per cent per annum. It currently operates in over 40 countries being the market leader for socio-economic services to the European Commission on infrastructure programmes.
But the new reorganisation has created a capability led structure that is technically focused and globally flexible to offer its full range of expertise to clients all over the world.
Paul Hamer, Chief Executive, WYG Group, said: “It is a critical thread of our three-part strategy to leverage our international position to create greater geographical and end-market diversity, and this new structure will stimulate further global collaboration across the Group.”
The consultancy is now structured into four main areas of expertise - Buildings & Critical Infrastructure; Transport Solutions; Energy & Sustainability; Risk & Assurance Services.
An example of WYG providing its technical expertise internationally is its recent work in Poland helping the country to upgrade its roads in preparation to host the Euro 2012 Football Championships.
Paul added: “As we continue to move forward, we remain committed to creating a fit for purpose business that is strong, sustainable and better positioned to compete more effectively in our chosen markets and countries. In addition to our work in Poland, we recently announced our largest ever international programme in the Western Balkans and it is my vision to build on these successes to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional solutions and services to our global clients.”
