Turning Consulting Inside Out: Celerant Consulting -- New Global Name For Cambridge Management Consulting

Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Celerant Consulting

    LEXINGTON, Mass., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As of midnight May 1, 2001,
 Celerant Consulting is the new global name for Cambridge Management Consulting
 (CMC), formerly the wholly owned management consulting operation and now an
 affiliate of Cambridge Technology Partners (Massachusetts), Inc.
 ("Cambridge").
     Literally translated as one who performs at speed, the name Celerant
 captures the spirit and agility of a consultancy with a track record of
 rapidly delivering profitable growth for leading corporations.  Celerant
 Consulting has already delivered $4.2 billion (Euro 4.7 billion) in value to
 companies who want a fast track to efficiencies, savings and profitable growth
 in key operational areas.
     "The launch of the new identity represents a great start to a new future
 for Celerant Consulting, and offers an even better prospect for us to meet the
 needs of companies who need to tackle major operational imperatives and obtain
 excellence in the 38 countries in which we operate," said Celerant Consulting
 Deputy Chairman, Quentin Baer.
     The rebranding follows Cambridge's announced intention to explore
 strategic options that would allow its management consulting unit CMC to
 operate more independently as a means of enabling faster growth.  Jack
 Messman, chief executive officer and president of Cambridge comments that,
 "New Economy winners will be those companies who recognise their distinctive
 competencies and leverage them most effectively."
     The name change and repositioning is a key part of the development and
 growth of Celerant Consulting and signals greater independence from Cambridge.
 The move enables Celerant Consulting to better communicate its strength as an
 operational strategy and implementation specialist with deep industry
 expertise and broad capabilities, including technology transformation.  It
 also gives the company further freedom to develop a flexible web of technology
 alliances to enhance the speed and magnitude of results for clients and stay
 ahead of their needs.
     The announcement builds on Celerant Consulting's impressive track record,
 which over the last 10 years has seen the company's revenues increase by an
 average 38% per annum in response to demand from global companies seeking help
 in making their operations more profitable.
     The majority of Celerant Consulting's clients are top 1,000 companies in
 the world, and include: Basell, BP Amoco, CPKelco, DuPont SA, Ericsson, ICI,
 Norsk Hydro, Shell, TotalFinaElf, and Volvo among many others.
     "Celerant Consulting doesn't offer abstract wisdom from the top of the
 mountain -- although we have been there and we can describe the view.  Our
 approach is linked directly to what we do on the ground with our clients'
 people," said Celerant Consulting Chief Executive Officer, Ian Clarkson.
     "Most consulting firms finish their work by delivering a plan, but at
 Celerant Consulting we don't just talk about being faster, more efficient and
 effective -- we deliver these things for real.  For us, what happens inside
 our clients' organisations is what really matters.  Critically, we leave our
 clients with the internal capacity to manage change themselves, so as the
 benchmarks move our clients move with them," said Mr. Clarkson.
     Celerant Consulting delivers operational strategy and implementation
 services in the following key areas: asset management, supply chain
 management, product and process leadership, technology transformation, and
 organizational effectiveness.
     The Celerant Consulting Executive Management Team consists of: Quentin
 Baer - Deputy Chairman; Ian Clarkson - Chief Executive Officer; Malcolm Glyn -
 Chief Financial Officer; Eric Guyader - President, European Operations; Dwight
 Gertz, President, Americas; Emile Weekers - President, Manufacturing,
 Infrastructure, and FMCG industries, and David Pleasance - President, Process
 and Energy industries.

 increases in quantifiable value.  The company provides operational strategy
 and implementation services and prides itself on being the consultant most
 able to help organisations progress rapidly from thinking differently to
 acting differently.  Headquartered in London, Celerant Consulting has an
 established presence throughout Europe and North America and has enjoyed an

 majority of Celerant Consulting clients are the top 1000 companies in the
 world and are in the following industries: Energy, Process, Manufacturing,
 FMCG, Infrastructure.  Celerant Consulting, formerly known as Cambridge
 Management Consulting, is an affiliate of Cambridge Technology Partners
 (Massachusetts), Inc.
     It was recently announced that Novell, Inc., a U.S. Nasdaq-listed company,
 would acquire Cambridge Technology Partners ("Cambridge").  The transaction is
 subject to several conditions, including the approval of Cambridge
 shareholders.  It remains the intention that Celerant Consulting will operate
 more independently as an affiliate of Cambridge.
