MTI network to reach 40 countries
The vision of MTI Consulting is to build one of the widest and most admired international consulting networks in the world, says its energetic CEO Hilmy Cader in unveiling the group’s new international strategic thrust that aims at a network of Associates, Business Partners and Certified Consultants in 40 countries by 2009.
MTI sees the power and potential in the form of highly talented and successful regional consultants in different parts of the world who are confined to their own regions and unable to take on the big name legacy consultants due to the lack of a global network. “We wish to play the catalyst role of building the network by bringing together these consultancies from all parts of the world which could then rival the big name legacy consultancies,” said Mr Cader in a statement.
Marking the completion of 11 years since MTI started, the Chief Executive of MTI said “Since our humble beginnings in 1997 with a single person, single operation, we have grown into eight of our own operations in Malaysia, Bahrain, Dubai, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan and a Representative Office in the UK, through which we have carried out work in 33 countries”
MTI’s international expansion will be based on a two-way strategy of Rapid International Footprint through Business Partners and Associates and scaling up the MTI’s value delivery capabilities through MTI Certified Consultants.
MTI also plans to experiment the concept of a co-owned subsidiary that will allow private equity to take a stake in a MTI subsidiary in a new country, whereby MTI will contribute to capital by way of providing a complete turn key start-up operation and on-going management support, the statement said.
