Lowendalmasaï, the international business optimisation consultancy, has today announced the promotion of Francis Mainoo to Deputy Managing Director, Lowendalmasai UK. Francis was formerly UK Head of Corporate Development at Lowendalmasai.

Francis also has responsibility for Lowendalmasaï’s client relationship strategy and corporate development strategy in these regions. He is based at Lowendalmasaï’s London office.
Francis was formerly Head of London Business Development at Grant Thornton, where he was responsible for driving lead generation and new revenue across the London market, as well as directing Grant Thornton's multi-service Private Equity offering nationally.
Francis has worked in corporate finance for over 10 years, covering deal origination, research & analysis and thought leadership. His previous career includes roles at Merrill Lynch and Ernst & Young.
Commenting on his appointment, Francis Mainoo said: “Lowendalmasaï is challenging the old-fashioned consultancy model through its specialist global expertise, agility and success fee- based approach.
“While traditional firms go for a “bums-on-seats”approach, Lowendalmasaï works closely with internal teams to implement programmes that reduce clients costs on a sustainable and ongoing basis.
“The attractiveness of our approach is reflected in our client list, which comprises over 10% of the world’s largest companies in the FTSE Global 500.”
