Finalists in three categories for the 2021 MCA Awards


May 2021

The MCA Awards have been an important event in the UK consulting calendar for over 24 years. Each year, they demonstrate the true value of consulting to both the private and public sector and the impact consulting has on our society.

We are delighted to announce that we are finalist in three categories at the prestigious Management Consultancies Association (MCA) Awards 2021.

We have been nominated for:

  • Strategy – our work with Weir Group, a global engineering firm
  • Rising Star – Tom Chambers
  • Best New Consultancy  – examines the business’ client focus, delivery excellence, commitment to our people, and operations excellence.

The MCA revealed that competition was tougher than ever as entries were up by more than 40% this year – a record number of entrants. Thirty-two firms have been announced as finalists by the Management Consultancies Association (MCA) for the MCA Awards 2021 in both project and individual categories. Entries for Rising Star and Young Consultant saw sharp rises compared to the previous year so the competition will be more intense than ever.

Tamzen Isacsson, Chief Executive of the Management Consultancies Association (MCA), quoted in the MCA’s latest press release that the outstanding examples of consulting work in this year’s awards highlight why the UK has one of the largest and most respected consultancy sectors globally.

Steve Watmough, Mason Advisory CEO, says: “We’re delighted to be nominated in three categories, it’s a real morale-booster for our whole team during these challenging and disruptive times. It is also testament to the outstanding work we have delivered and the high calibre of consultants in our team, who are really driving our business forward and producing quality results and solutions for our clients.

It’s a real privilege for us to be continuously shortlisted alongside heavyweight industry players and we know we face tough competition with such a high level of entries this year. While we are still navigating global challenges and facing uncertainty, we are confident our expertise and services will continue to be valuable and in demand, and allow our team to deliver high quality results and digital solutions for our clients.”

The MCA Awards have been an important industry event in the UK consulting calendar for 24 years and demonstrate the true value of consulting to both the public and private sector and the impact consulting has on society. They are the benchmark for quality within the sector, attracting the very best submissions and celebrating high quality results.

The winners will be decided by an independent panel of judges and announced at the MCA Awards Dinner in November 2021 where the winning projects, consultancies and individuals will be invited to collect their prizes.  We would like to wish the Mason Advisory team, involved in the three interviews, every success.  We feel that being a finalist is an achievement in itself and winning or being highly commended would be an even greater achievement.

Good Luck to all the other companies involved in the interview process.
