Arca Blanca nominated for MCA Awards 2021

We are delighted to announce that Arca Blanca has been shortlisted in two categories for the prestigious 2021 Management Consultancy Association (MCA) Awards. The MCA Awards recognise excellence in consulting, and these nominations are a testament to the extraordinary results our teams have delivered with our clients over the past year.

We have been shortlisted for the Change and Transformation Project in the Private Sector award for our work with robotics specialist Tharsus, a project that responded to social distancing requirements brought about by the pandemic.

This is in addition to being shortlisted in the Strategy category with a project for Landsec plc, which forecasts retail trends using the application of data science and artificial intelligence.

It builds on a strong performance at the 2020 MCA Awards, where we were highly commended for Best New Consultancy and finalists for Change and Transformation in the Private Sector with both Ocado and McCarthy Stone and the International category with Vision-Box.

“Covid-19 placed tremendous demands on businesses and their leaders as they were forced to grapple with increased uncertainty and in many cases rapidly declining revenues. Arca Blanca was founded to help clients respond quickly to complex environments using leading thinking in business design and advanced data science. We are extremely proud to have helped Tharsus, a market leader in complex robotic solutions, deliver a social distancing device to quickly allow people to get back to work, and to have built a market-leading machine learning tool to predict the future of ‘retail rents’ for Landsec, one of the largest owners of retail space in the UK. Our nominations show that our pragmatic and practical results-driven approach delivers real business results when they are needed most.”

Chris Wakerley, Chairman of Arca Blanca

“We are delighted to have been nominated for these awards. This is a testament to the great work that our clients, together with our consulting and data science team, are doing in integrating business transformation and data science to address and embed solutions to solve key strategic and business challenges. This achievement is even more rewarding with Arca Blanca yet to celebrate our third anniversary. We send our heartfelt thanks to our clients, colleagues and network of partners who have made this possible.
