    Altus have supported and guided us from platform as a concept through all the following phases and across all work streams including Supplier Selection, Design and Compliance. Their consultants have blended with our own teams with perfect harmony which in turn has fostered a strong culture of togetherness rather than 'us' and 'them'. Altus add value in all exchanges and in this sense are thought leaders who are not afraid to challenge or call out issues; often following fast with solutions. I would (and do...) recommend Altus to other companies with absolute sincerity. An excellent engagement.

    - James Dunne, Head of Strategy & Business Development
