We couldn’t have made a better choice and the value add was tangible.

Apricum combines a truly differentiating understanding of the new technologies driving the energy transition with the best-in-class quality of legacy consulting firms. We couldn’t have made a better choice, and the value add was tangible. In the past, before learning about Apricum, we hired some of the traditional consulting firms for our processes, but they lacked the flexibility and speed to ramp-up their expertise in new industrial verticals, and that came at the cost of our clients and processes. Going forward we will continue recommending Apricum as our top pick for any of our clients seeking to hire a commercial advisor for maximizing the success of its process.”

Alessandro Frangi

Executive Director, UBS
