Earlier this year, Pollen Consulting Group expanded into the UK – the first international office of the five-year-old Australian advisory firm. 

Founded five years ago by Paul Eastwood, Pollen Consulting Group is a private-held consultancy that initially launched supporting clients in the fast moving consumer goods landscape with transforming and digitising their supply chain and operations. Over the years, the Sydney-based firm expanded its industry track record to also include clients in the retail, industrial, logistics and pharma sectors. 

Three months after unveiling its market entry into the UK, founder Paul Eastwood explains why 2021 was the perfect time for the firm to go international, and discusses together with UK managing director Derek Cunningham what the firm’s ambitions are in Europe’s second largest consulting market.
