W. Scott Timpson manages demand for operational improvements across sectors
CALGARY, Canada, December 17, 2014 – Argo, Inc., a global consulting firm regarded as an authority on operational and financial performance, is pleased to announce its expansion into Calgary, Alberta, and the opening of a new office.
CEO Fernando Assens cited increased demand for Argo’s services in Western Canada: “After several years of having large teams of consultants in the Calgary area, we have taken the logical step of opening an office and establishing a management presence to better support our clients in the region.”
Since its founding in 1998, Argo has been selected as the partner-of-choice for leading global companies from the mining, energy, oil and gas, transportation, rail, chemicals and manufacturing sectors. Argo is a consulting company that doesn’t hire “consultants” per se but utilizes highly experienced practitioners to not only implement improvements, but also to embed capabilities within the cultural fabric of organizations.
“The Western Canadian economy has always been pivotal to our national economy, and the impact of crude prices sliding lower than expected by the oil sands is significant to the entire country”, said W. Scott Timpson, president of Argo Inc. — Canada. “The organizations that invested in operational excellence during the good times will likely fare better.”
In addition to Calgary, Argo performs work in more than 20 countries, supported by offices in Toronto, Chicago and Germany.
