Change consultancy Curium Solutions has expanded into the US following its merger with Florida-based performance improvement and leadership development firm DME Consulting International.
Part of the business’s ambitious growth plans, the move will see Curium offer its unique mix of Delivery and Capability solutions to US organisations looking to improve performance and deliver effective and sustainable change.
Curium co-founder and Director James Farrow said: “We are enormously excited about this latest stage in the Curium journey. We know Dan well and his skills, experience and contacts give us a great place to start. Having established ourselves as a growing business in the UK, we are looking forward to creating something special in the US.”
“In today’s fast-moving world, individuals, teams and organisations need to adapt and change more quickly than ever. With our track record for helping deliver major change and improve performance, this is the right time to share our insights, experience and solutions with US businesses.”
DME Consulting founder Daniel Entwistle will lead Curium’s US operations. Dan spent more than a decade in the UK banking sector, followed by time in the UK consulting market. He then moved to the US, setting up DME Consulting. Dan is experienced and certified by a number of industry bodies in relation to change management and leadership development.
Daniel Entwistle said: “We have a strong belief that organisations and individuals can continually push the barriers on their performance levels, and we look to partner with clients to assist them in breaking through these barriers. We work hand in hand with our clients to deliver change, motivate their people and evolve their performance.”
Curium will be based in Orlando, Florida. Its new US office opens in March.
Formed in 2008, Curium is an independent change consultancy working with household brands across a range of sectors. These include Lloyds Banking Group, E.ON, Kingfisher Group, Boots, Argos, Habitat, Zurich, Provident Financial Group, Shop Direct, Prologis, Telefonica, and Nationwide.
About Curium Solutions:
Curium simplifies change and empowers individuals and organisations to achieve their personal and business potential. It delivers its solutions through two consultancy practices: Capability and Delivery.
The Capability practice develops people capability to support culture change and achieve accelerated results for leader and team performance. Delivery focuses on helping organisations to deliver key business projects and programmes, such as digital transformation, organisational design, and front and back office operational improvement.
Curium helps organisations facing change including:
- Poor business performance – increase productivity and innovation, enhance employee engagement, improve customer service, introduce more efficient processes and reduce cost
- High growth – develop skills, leadership and infrastructure to support and sustain rapid growth
- Merger or acquisition – cultural and operational change to support the new organisation
- Regulatory change – manage reactive change imposed by a regulator
In a sector heavy with jargon and complexity, Curium simplifies change, taking best practice processes, tools, models and frameworks and boiling them down to their essential and most useful elements.
Curium works with individuals, empowering them to make change sustainable long after the team has left. Every member of the Curium team has experienced change from the client side and understands the emotional journeys individuals experience when leading or adapting to change.
