Christopher Burke, CEO and founder of Brickendon Consulting, has been recognised in the Ones to Watch list of leaders tipped for great things, as part of LDC’s* Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders campaign.
Christopher, who founded Brickendon in London eight years ago, has grown the organisation into a global transformational consultancy with clients around the world and offices in a range of cities on both sides of the Atlantic. The LDC campaign, which is supported by the Daily Telegraph, aims to showcase the very best of entrepreneurial endeavour and focuses on people who are pushing boundaries and striving for success.
With nearly 30 years industry experience, Christopher’s ambition and leadership is multifaceted. He established Brickendon with the aim of ‘step changing’ and radically reforming the traditional consultancy model and has since saved many of the world’s largest financial institutions significant amounts of time and money.
Brickendon’s goal is to solve the challenges faced by its clients with innovative, bespoke solutions. By providing strategic advice, change and technology management and project delivery services, Brickendon has improved its clients’ profitability, increased efficiency and reduced risk. More recently Christopher’s focus has expanded to include Brickendon Digital, which has been building on its significant experience in the area of prototyping to produce off-the-shelf technology products to make clients’ businesses run more smoothly, more efficiently and ensure regulatory compliance.
James Morris from LDC said “Chris is committed to innovation and has enabled the transformational management and technology consultancy to challenge the dominant industry model and establish itself quickly. His secret to success is foregoing the round-the-clock culture his sector is known for and instead building a diverse and creative workforce.”
