A new consultancy firm has launched to support professional services firms in winning new work.
Stephen Alexander – founded by Alex Footman and Stephens Timmins – has been created to work with firms in the legal, accountancy and advisory sectors, to provide expert advice and support on marketing, bids and tenders and business development.
They will work with senior management and in-house bid, marketing and business development teams to support them in the delivery of a range of activities including bids and pitching, lead generation, marketing planning and campaigns, business development programmes, digital and events marketing.
Founders, Stephen and Alex have held senior marketing, business development and bid management roles in financial services, legal and accountancy firms and property businesses across the Midlands. Alex was most recently head of marketing and business development for Quantuma, a global advisory firm, and prior to that was part of Gateley’s marketing team, the AIM-listed legal and professional services group. Stephen has held senior head of bid management roles across a range of construction and maintenance businesses.
Alex, director and co-founder, told The Professionals: “We are incredibly excited to get Stephen Alexander launched and to support businesses in delivering their growth plans. We have a wealth of experience and expertise in developing strategic plans as well as providing hands-on support for professional services firms.”
Stephen, director and co-founder, added: “There are plenty of consultancies out there that offer either marketing, business development, or bid management services. We spotted a gap in the market to bring all areas of the work-winning process together under one roof, and we are already seeing strong appetite for our services in the market.”
