Arthur D. Little strengthens digital teams in France and Belgium to support post-COVID-19 initiatives
May 2021

Arthur D. Little (ADL) today announced the expansion and strengthening of its digital teams in France and Belgium, with a number of new consultants having recently been appointed. The ongoing digitalization of services, communications and working practices is a key tenet of European companies’ post-COVID-19 recovery strategies, and ADL believes there is a greater need than ever for expert guidance in this area.

ADL’s digital teams aim to help companies in every sector innovate by harnessing the power of new technologies. The new members of the French and Belgian teams bring a wealth of experience with them, including the development of digital strategies; the design of data-enabled products, as well as data valorization and data-driven efficiency improvements; the set-up of customer-centric business models, customer and commercial excellence programs; and company transformations.

Vincent Bamberger, Managing Partner of Arthur D. Little's Paris and Brussels offices, comments: “ADL’s digital teams are a specialist group of consultants focused on accelerating the digital transition within government, corporate and industrial sectors. Linking digital expertise with ADL’s core skills in strategy and innovation is a key way in which we help our clients to succeed in today’s world. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new members of our digital teams, as their experience is sure to significantly reinforce both our capabilities and reach in this area.”

Michael Majster, Partner in ADL Belgium’s digital team, adds: “Although we are currently living through challenging times, the COVID-19 situation has re-emphasized the need for companies to have digital strategies that reinforce and complement their business models in the long term. In addition, the EU has recognized that the digital transformation across all sectors in Europe has to be accelerated in order for countries to remain competitive and not get left behind by the speed of change in other parts of the world. Digitalization can sometimes feel like a long tunnel fraught with peril, but ADL is committed to successfully moving its clients into the digital future as part of a value-led process, with its digital teams using their expertise to highlight how new technologies have helped companies to innovate and thrive.”

Marie-Catherine Patry Winckler, Associate Director in ADL Paris’s digital team, adds: “The pace and complexity of digital transformation increases along with technologies’ maturity. Companies are now expected to have articulated understanding of their missions within a digital world, as well as a detailed roadmap to get there. The articulation of the long-term vision with quick wins and short-term use cases is paramount to bolstering teams’ engagement and set up a virtuous financial circle. ADL relies on deep industry knowledge and experience in innovation to support its clients in seizing these new opportunities.”
