Aston Martin Enters Consulting Race Track
On 11 March 2016, the renowned British carmaker Aston Martin announced the formation of Aston Martin Consulting (AMC) – a new initiative to provide companies with the opportunity to engage with Aston Martin’s expertise centred on design, engineering and manufacturing.
AMC operations will be based at Aston Martin’s headquarters and manufacturing facility in Gaydon, Warwickshire where 1,800 employees work to produce the company’s range of luxury sports cars.
No doubt, with a brand that plenty of executives have admired since childhood, AMC is sure to make a dent in the consulting industry.

Successful projects in the past have included a collaboration with Sir Norman Foster’s company, Foster + Partners, to design the London Bus of the future and more recently the stunning AM37 powerboat, created in conjunction with Quintessence Yachts.
Managing Director, Bradley Yorke-Biggs, will head Aston Martin Consulting. He brings extensive experience from his 14 years on the senior management team and is ideally placed to lead this new venture for Aston Martin. He said: “We are very excited to be able to extend the reach of the business to include the provision of services across different sectors; both automotive and beyond. We have an incredibly talented and experienced team within Aston Martin and we look forward to expanding our horizons as we work with new clients on interesting new projects.”
