Whitecap was established as a regional strategy consultancy in Leeds in 2012 with the aim of providing practical strategic advice for the broad mid-market and effectively filling the gap between the large London-based strategy houses and local ‘one-man-bands’.
Since then, the firm has grown successfully and today Whitecap helps mid-sized organisations (typically between £10m-£300m turnover) analyse, develop and implement growth strategies.
The team supports a range of clients across several market sectors including: Financial Services, Technology, FinTech, Outsourcing, Consumer and Retail, Property, Healthcare, Higher Education, Manufacturing and Professional Services, including Corporate Finance and PE.
Over recent years Whitecap has worked with a number of PE firms on commercial due diligence projects where the cheque size is between £1m-£10m.
Whitecap is also engaged with a number of PE firms in relation to portfolio support, with a specific focus on energising and focusing the business strategy and clarity on key value drivers in the post-transaction stage.
The firm now has six offices across England: Leeds, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Birmingham and Bristol.
