ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UMS Advisory, Inc., a leading global management consulting firm, today announced it has changed the company name from UMS Advisory to Trascent Management Consulting, LLC. The new corporate brand is a reflection of the company's enhanced capabilities, global footprint, and a new corporate structure that positions the firm for continued growth and capability expansion.
As a result of this rebranding, Trascent has officially launched a new corporate web site, www.trascent.com.
"It's an exciting time for a company that's rapidly evolving and making a tremendous impact on the RE/FM industry on a global level," said George Bouri, Trascent managing principal - Americas. "In 2014, we plan to continue introducing innovative and differentiated services into the marketplace to help our clients transform their operations and build a solid platform for future growth. Our new brand captures the essence of what we do: partner with clients to bring proven thought-leadership and results-driven approaches to assist in the overall performance improvement of their operations," said Bouri.
Rakesh Kishan, managing principal - EMEA added, "Over the years, we built a global, leading position in RE and FM consulting. But with a switch to a new corporate structure that positions us for growth, expanded capabilities with the recent acquisition of IWMSconnect, and a broader set of next generation client solutions, a new brand is needed to reflect our vision for the firm."
Inspiration for the brand came from the words "transform" and "ascent", which represents how Trascent can help leading blue-chip companies elevate their operational performance and maximize results.
The new corporate brand continues to reinforce the company's current tagline, "Thought Leadership Driving Results."
