Africa Growth Consulting (Pty) Ltd
A-G-C (Africa-Growth-Consulting) was founded in 2014 by Jörn Falbe a seasoned professional with 26 years experience in the Energy Industry; mainly in Europe and Southern Africa. He identified a gap in the market and started the business as a South Africa based independent consultancy firm in 2015. A-G-C provides, with its local and international partners, services to clients in the Energy Industry (Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Mining, and Electricity) and Financial Institutions.
Our clients are Independent and National Oil, Gas & Chemical Companies, Pipeline and Storage Companies, Utility and Mining Companies, and Financial Institutions. They face one common growth barrier: A gap in internal management capacity to implement in today’s uncertain environment ambitious growth plans in parallel to running the existing business efficiently. We offer our clients with our professional consultancy services a solution to accelerate the implementation of their own growth initiatives.
We provide together with our partner independent consultancy services supporting our clients to break the barriers of growth: Senior Advisory; Interim Management to initiate and accelerate the implementation of strategic growth projects; and Shareholder Representation in boards of joint ventures and in project steering committees.
A joint review of existing strategic initiatives and a co-development of the implementation plan will ensure alignment, focus and a balance of aspiration with capacity. We provide our services along the three growth levers:
• Asset Optimization: “Create the foundation for growth”
o Implementation of business improvement initiatives and turnarounds
o Technical and Operational support: trouble shooting, problem solving
o Customer specific ”hands on” training to transfer skills
• Market Entry: “Benefit from growing markets”
o Market entry strategy support – accelerate growth through partnership
o Identification, selection and integration of complementary partners
• Asset Acquisition: “Grow the balance sheet”
o Support in M&A projects: Due Diligence, Master Planning, Integration
o Owners team support to develop bankable infrastructure projects
