Retail is a fast-paced business. The saying, ‘innovate or die’ has never been more apt. At Retail Management Consultants we’ve been innovating for the past 25 years and we’re as excited about the retail business as we were when we started.

Like the best retailers, we believe in caring for our customers. We’ve built our business on simple, universal values: honour, honesty, and hard work. It’s an approach that has stood the test of time – the clients who work with us, tend to stay with us.

Our expertise and contacts across the globe have breathed fresh life into many popular brands with ambitions to grow.

Not only do we work in Europe and the United Kingdom, so far we’ve helped companies set up businesses and partner with new retail opportunities in the Middle East, Asia Pacific, India, and China.

We offer four core services: InsightsConnectionsRecruitmentConsultancy.

They’re services that can be used together or on their own depending on your needs, but they’re all designed to make your life easier.

From market intelligence and feasibility studies, to putting you in touch with the right people on the ground, to recruiting the best talent for your business, we’re here to help.

Time and again, our expertise has added value to retailers and brands. Whether you are a publicly listed or a privately-owned company, a new start-up or a household name, let us use that expertise to add value to yours.
