Australia-based insight and strategy consultancy The Leading Edge has closed its London office, citing 'Brexit uncertainty-related issues' which it says have made clients reluctant to commit to budgets. The firm will now run most client accounts from its Sydney headquarters.
Founded 30 years ago, the Enero-owned company, which also has an office in New York, specialises in innovation, shopper marketing and brand management. Despite its presence in London, the firm has recently found that growth has been greater in the APAC region, as many of its Australian clients also have regional Asian offices.
Global CEO Gillian O'Sullivan (pictured) explains: 'Over the past year The Leading Edge has worked in over 30 countries around the world, with mobile teams who can travel to wherever the client needs them, and we will continue this agile approach for any client who would like to work with us. TLE was founded in Sydney 30 years ago and expanded to the UK in 2010, but recently growth has been greater in APAC'.
