Phil Hanson is new Young MCA chair

Curzon Consulting Senior Consultant, Phil Hanson, has been elected as the new Chair of the Young MCA.

The Young MCA is a professional network for consultants which aims to:

  • Be the voice of young consultants in the consulting industry
  • Enhance the development of young consultants
  • Provide key networking opportunities for young consultants across the UK
  • Increase awareness of the consultancy profession to school leavers and undergraduates

Phil will take over the role in December 2019 following an election by young consultants. The appointment of a new Chair comes at an important time for the Young MCA which is rapidly growing its membership base and is developing new regional networks across the UK.

Phil Hanson said:

“I am delighted to take up the position of Young MCA Chair. I value the important role the organisation plays in attracting the best talent to the industry, supporting its members and inspiring and developing them. I also recognise the significant opportunity that exists to continue to grow and build on the excellent work the Young MCA is already doing, enabling it to engage in more ways with an even wider member base.

Consulting is changing rapidly and I intend to ensure that through the Young MCA, young consultants’ voices are heard, helping them evolve to meet the needs of the clients and industries they serve.”

Tamzen Isacsson, Chief Executive of the MCA, said:

“The Young MCA is an important part of the MCA and supports professionals joining the consulting industry in MCA member firms. 2019 has been a busy year for the Young MCA with new communication activities, a record number of events across the UK and a growing membership base. We are delighted to have welcomed 13 new member firms this year into the MCA and one of the key benefits for firms is the access their young consultants get to events through the Young MCA. We look forward to building on this success in 2020 and the years to come. I would like to thank Josh Hutchison for all his hard work in supporting the Young MCA as Chair and welcome Phil Hanson on board in his new role.”
