Welcome to Merciar Business Consulting
BUSINESS : ECONOMICS : MANAGEMENT
I help COO’s in Consulting Houses mitigate risk in commercial, regulatory and political context to achieve ten million-pound plus savings through the strategic clarity of economics.
MERCIAR BUSINESS CONSULTING was founded by Damian Merciar in 1998, after an international background in applied business consultancy encompassing FTSE 100 firms, right across to private client development initiatives in the Middle East.
Business Consultancy, as distinct from Management Consultancy, emphasises the achievable, through vital operational staff input – as opposed to an oftentimes misapplication of Strategy from on high. Results are greater and longer lived, the lower down the value added chain they are implemented. Strategic enhancement is a critical later addition, not a starting point.
All of our proposals are intellectually rigorous and constitute best practice. A lengthy exposure to cutting edge management and business economic principles ensures operational recommendations are designed to fulfil two main objectives: profit enhancement and the sustainability of that enhancement.
Headed by Damian Merciar, a senior economist with a wealth of experience working for clients across industries and geographies. A lengthy exposure to all aspects of applied economics including network utilities; labour market policy; entrepreneurship, political application and pragmatic policy read across; mobile communications development and auctions; energy sector. The practical appreciation of economics applied to business strategic outcomes.
