Sia Partners opens 2nd US office in North Carolina
In keeping with its North American expansion plan, Sia Partners announces the opening of a second office in Charlotte, North Carolina this October.
This office will handle operations in the southeastern states, from North Carolina to Florida. “Charlotte was the natural choice for the next Sia Partners’ office,” says Dan Connor, Managing Director and Head of North American Operations. “We already offer Financial Services expertise in the larger international hubs, with over 300 dedicated consultants, including 60 professionals in New York. We now have the critical mass to expand across the country and to better serve our US Financial Services clientele.”
Sia Partners’ dedicated partner for the Charlotte office, Shane Williams, has over 20 years of experience working in corporate and investment banking and consulting. Previously based in the New York office, Williams joined Sia Partners in 2013. He also brings his vast knowledge of risk management and operations in diverse areas such as commercial lending and regulatory reporting, which are key offerings for the financial services operations of institutions with a presence in Charlotte. “I am very enthusiastic about steering our operations in the region and building up a team targeted to be more than 30 consultants in three years,” says Williams.
In North America, Sia Partners provides services in the Corporate & Investment Banking, Consumer Banking, Insurance and Asset Management sectors on hot topics such as the Regulatory Implementations (Volcker Rule, FATCA, AML, CCAR, ICH, etc.) and Target Operating Model Design & Optimization. Sia Partners US doubled its activity in 2015. With more than $14M in revenue, Sia Partners expects to open a third US office by the end of 2016.
