Turnkey Consulting expands operations in US Combines forces with SAP application security and controls specialist, HBCG LLC
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Turnkey Consulting (www.turnkeyconsulting.com) is expanding its operations in the US through pooling resources with Hermosa Beach Consulting Group, LLC (HBCG), an SAP application security and controls specialist based in California. The companies will work together, making the business one of the largest SAP GRC and security-focused consultancies in the world.
Customers will benefit from the extended network of expertise and thought leadership offered by the combined operations of the companies. The announcement also makes it straightforward for Turnkey to provide cohesive SAP and GRC security services to the different country offices of global organisations.
Turnkey undertook in-depth research and analysis into potential US partners and the most effective way to expand its business in the region. The combination of HBCGs skillset and its commitment to quality, which will enable Turnkey to build its brand in the US, led to it being selected.
Additional business parallels between Turnkey Consulting and HBCG enhance the fit of the partnership. Both were founded around ten years ago by former PwC consultants, and have used the extensive industry experience that resulted from this to provide consultancy to global brands.
The agreement with HBCG is an important milestone for Turnkey, explains Richard Hunt, managing director of Turnkey Consulting. Expanding further into the US is a key objective for us, but is only possible with the right business partner. HBCG can be trusted with the Turnkey name and brand, and its impeccable track record with blue chip customers is proof that it delivers over and above its promise.
Troy Konis, a founding partner at HBCG who will take on the role of managing director at Turnkey Consulting US, says: Working with Turnkey strengthens the GRC offering that we can provide to current and new customers and enables us to better serve companies with operations outside the US. It reinforces our team with a set of like-minded people, whose values, approach, and commitment to quality are aligned with our own.
Over the next year, Turnkey Consulting and HBCG will explore strategies to further integrate their business operations.
