frank2First Energy Bank’s Experience with Catalyst

“We had the challenging task of building a world class organisation in a short period of time. We searched globally for partners to support us in this challenge, and found only a few firms that had the depth of experience and expertise required to make a quantum difference to our efforts.

Catalyst was sought out based on its unique model of deploying highly experienced operational managers and executives, a tremendous track record of delivering value to some of the largest corporations in the world and its ability to develop the capability of our people. Over the last 18 months, together with Catalyst, we have achieved tremendous gains. They have made the difference we were looking for.”
