Singapore (PRWEB) July 11, 2009
Global Intelligence Alliance Group (GIA), a global strategic market intelligence and advisory company, has completed its previously announced merger with Fusion Consulting in Asia Pacific. Fusion Consulting will now operate under the global brand name of Global Intelligence Alliance. The completed integration means that GIA's global clients will be able to seamlessly access industry expertise across the Asia Pacific, through an established network of 600 domain consultants in the region.
Founders of Fusion Consulting, Pete Read and Marine Mallinson, will take on the roles of Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific and Managing Director Greater China respectively. Pete Read will be based in Singapore and Marine Mallinson in Hong Kong, while Nicolas Pechet will take on the role of Vice President, China, based in Shanghai.
"Our integration with GIA is very timely, coming at a point when global economic conditions are showing regular improvement, companies in Europe and North America are looking to Asia for business growth, and Chinese as well as other Asian companies are increasingly exploring worldwide opportunities. GIA is now ideally placed as a strategic market intelligence and advisory partner for all these companies," said Pete Read.
"The merger with GIA will also benefit our longstanding clients as we expand our services to include intelligence software, continuous monitoring services and training workshops. The total suite of services we offer under GIA has been developed by a team of market intelligence specialists, management consultants, industry analysts and technology experts, and can be fully customized for our clients," said Marine Mallinson.
Says Markko Vaarnas, CEO of GIA, "The impressive credentials and track record that Fusion Consulting has achieved in Asia Pacific since its inception in 2002 is a huge bonus for our global clients. They bring great insight and hands-on experience in a region that many companies are turning their focus to during the current economic climate."
