We pride ourselves on being forward thinking and fast paced using deep market knowledge to underpin our advice. We provide a holistic service offering including analysis, strategy creation, implementation and optimisation. With offices in Asia and Europe, we merge a global mindset with local expertise delivering innovative solutions to our clients, wherever they are in the world.
Retail has experienced a seismic shift over the last decade driven by a number of factors including cross-border, digitalisation, direct-to-consumer brands and a shift in consumer behaviour. This has made the retail landscape smaller yet increasingly crowded and complex which puts all brands at risk. To survive, retailers need to be more efficient, leaner and agile. With the continued disruption, it has never been more important for brands to have a true understanding of the local landscape in which they operate along with what their customer is actually seeking. Catesby can help achieve this.
We immerse ourselves in our client's business to identify and solve the biggest challenges they face. We fuse our deep understanding of the local consumer make-up, market landscape and local trends to deliver pragmatic solutions and help them stay relevant. Our impartial, trusted advice provides our clients with clarity, helping them stay agile and allowing them to adapt to the changing environment, unlocking new opportunities while reducing operating risk.
We are passionate about retail and the continued evolution of the consumer. This helps fuel our desire to push boundaries and deliver winning solutions for the most complex challenges. Whether looking to gain an understanding of the local market, devising and implementing a realistic strategy, or helping highlight the best way to grow the business, we understand the critical factors and their influence on the brand's success. This makes us an indispensable extension of our clients.
We are specialists in assisting brands with their entry and expansion into new markets as well as providing a clear understanding of the ever changing retail landscape across all the consumer touch-points. We help our clients understand the intrinsic nuances each market offers and the impact these can have on your business. We use our market knowledge and understanding of the brand to provide expert advice and ensure our clients understand these nuances to maximise their true potential. With our experience working with numerous brands on their international expansion, we know how to optimise retail operations across various markets. By developing bespoke tailored plans, we are able to help reduce the risks of operating within these markets while creating long-term growth. This makes us the company retailers turn to when seeking analysis, advice and actionable growth strategies.
We have built a multi-disciplined team that are able to provide our clients with assistance across all areas of their business whether it be entry strategies, market analysis, operations, real estate, eCommerce, PR, social media or recruitment. We combine extensive experience with detailed market knowledge to provide our clients with customised solutions helping them remain at the forefront of their respective category.
