"We engaged PCB to assist us sourcing a distinct target asset in a specific segment. The task was essential to BIP's strategy to plug a gap in its capability to drive growth and momentum in key markets. It needed to be done discreetly and at pace, but with utmost professional qualification. Ben and Brett’s knowledge covers the gamut of the consulting market with deep and strong relationships with key mid-size European consulting assets. The PCB team delivered to the brief with a level of service that fully satisfied BIP and the firm would not hesitate in re-engaging to help in future critical activity"
