What Client’s Say

KBS came to the business at a time of much change for Smythson. There was a new owner with high ambition for Smythson and despite having extraordinary people, products and quality, sales had been stagnating for a couple of years. KBS reviewed the business structure along with the new owner’s plan for growth. KBS assessed the business needs and proposed a business platform and process to achieve the growth plans. The owner subsequently asked KBS to operate as part of the Executive Board while the key appointments, recommended by KBS, were headhunted and employed. I worked with KBS following my appointment as CEO in May 2012 and I have valued and appreciated their level headed experience and professionalism throughout that time. I have no reservations in recommending their services” 
Andy Janowski CEO, Smythson
“KBS took control of some key problem areas with the major UK grocery multiples and created a profitable platform for growth. KBS were extremely professional, a welcome member of the team and they rekindled strong relationships for Duni UK with our customers” 
Anne Marie Stott, former Managing Director, Duni UK
KBS used their extensive International experience to understand the different cultures and working practices across our South Europe Region. KBS made significant, business critical recommendations to change the Regional model and gained the Boards agreement to implement and manage the process. KBS quickly gained the confidence of everyone involved in the process and operated in a regional executive role as well as becoming a key member of the headquarters executive team. I endorse the skills and expertise of KBS and their knowledge of International business” 
Wim Welman, former CEO, Duni Group

“KBS provided a fresh insight to key strategic issues within the Duni Group. Their ability and speed to understand this complex business was very impressive. We asked KBS to operate in several executive development roles in the Far East and East Europe programmes and they became an integral part of our executive team, contributing to the development of Duni International operations. I would strongly recommend their services” 

Mikael Nordin, former COO, Duni Group
“KBS helped us out at a time when we were in real need of resources but didn’t want to add fixed cost to our payroll at the time. KBS offered a flexible but extremely professional and experienced resource that enabled us successfully to meet our business commitments with a particularly challenging client. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again”
