Stephen Cavanagh elected as Vice President of MCA

The Management Consultancies Association (MCA) has elected Mott MacDonald’s current director, Stephen Cavanagh, as its vice president.

MCA is the representing body for UK-based management consulting firms. The company’s mission is to promote the value of management consultancy for the UK economy and for our society as a whole. 

The 49 member companies of the MCA comprise around 60 per cent of the UK’s consulting industry, employing around 30,000 consultants that work with over 90 of the top FTSE 100 companies and almost all parts of the public sector. MCA strongly believes that the UK’s consulting industry is one of the best globally and a vital element of the business landscape.

To become a member of the MCA a company must meet tough entry requirements and a scrupulous code of practice. This means that MCA member companies are widely acknowledge as high quality consulting firms.

Stephen Cavanagh is a current member of the MCA board and has been heavily involved with the body’s activity prior to being appointed as vice president. He is head of business and professional improvement at Mott MacDonald, which operates chiefly in the UK central and local defence, health and social care, education and utilities sectors. 

Mott MacDonald is a global management, engineering and development consultancy company that serves the public and private sectors. The business, worth £23 million, has over 300 UK staff members that focus on  business improvement, cost reduction, efficiencies and effectiveness. 

Mr Cavanagh said: “I am delighted to be elected vice president of the MCA. The association plays an important part in promoting the positive contribution our industry makes to the economy and society as a whole.”

Alan Leaman, chief executive officer of the MCA, said: “The UK consulting industry is both diverse and a world leader. Mott MacDonald is one of a number of outstanding firms with a diverse engineering heritage that have contributed greatly to the consulting industry in recent years.

“I’m sure that Stephen will play an influential and effective role in helping the Association to represent the industry and to grow our role in future years. It is great to have his voice at the table.”

Mr Cavanagh will be supported by two further vice presidents, Chris Cooper, who is the current managing director of Challenge Consulting and Kirsty Birks, the group business director at Propaganda.
