ISG’s Agility team holds supply chain breakfast

ISG’s Agility team recently invited key supply chain partners to a breakfast presentation to share its aspirations and 2018 objectives.

Future plans and key business updates were on the agenda at a breakfast appreciation event held by ISG’s Agility team for its key supply chain partners, on Thursday 8 February at Gaucho Tower Bridge in London. 

The senior leadership team also shared the structure of the Agility team, and the event was an opportunity to strengthen our relationships, while promoting Agility’s three divisional directors and their commercial partners. 

With stunning morning views of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, the event kicked off with managing director, Lee Phillips, taking everyone through a timeline of Agility since its launch in 2016, outlining the growth to date, explaining the 2018 forecast figures and highlighting the market share the business is targeting.  

Following Lee’s introduction, divisional directors Darren O’Brien, Rob Carr and Jason Rutherford, as well as commercial director Chris Peters, were invited to speak to the room.

Darren O’Brien began by introducing his team and outlining two particularly interesting projects his division has undertaken – ASOS and Equinox. 

Darren continued with an outlook for 2018 and how he intends to enhance relationships and develop a like-minded delivery strategy.

Rob Carr spoke about his previous experience in ISG’s major projects team, and how he is transferring the relevant experience to build the Agility business. 

Jason Rutherford talked about the opportunities he sees in the aftercare market, his division’s focus on framework opportunities, and becoming a preferred delivery partner with more repeat work.

Chris Peters presented the partner-based approach that Agility is striving to achieve with its supply chain, including collaborative tendering and cultural alignment, in an effort to build sustainable relationships and deliver high-quality projects. 

Lee closed the session by referencing the significance of working collaboratively to provide an outstanding customer experience.

The breakfast was a key event for Agility and was met with a positive reaction from those in attendance.

Lee shared that he was delighted with the interest and engagement from all attendees, and is looking forward to the positive journey ahead.

Realm Projects business development director, Iain Donald, added: ‘’It is obvious that Lee and his team have a clear vision and strategy for Agility, and forming relationships with members of the supply chain forms a key part of this, which is exactly what we as a subcontractor want as well.’’

Other attendees acknowledged the quality of people in the room, which is key to drive the Agility business forward.  

Liam Whyte, managing director of Radii Partitioning, commented: “It was a very professional and genuine presentation, topped off with a great venue selection. 

“There were a number of excellent contractors in the room, and if they, coupled with the senior management team, are the backbone of the business, the Agility brand will be very well regarded in the industry.’’
