“Having worked with RUSH4th consulting on two major Automotive initiatives, I found them to be professional, knowledgeable and highly competent in their execution. They have the unenviable position of seeing issues from multiple aspects, bottom line and customer focused from a dealer prospective and brand consistent and progressive from a manufacturers viewpoint. I would not hesitate to engage RUSH4th consulting again in my business, they are my first choice for external consultancy in our Automotive cluster.”
“RUSH4th Consulting has been a business partner of Audi ME for many years and worked with us on numerous in-dealership operational development programs, senior dealership management mentoring programs, skills coaching for our field force to setting up Audi Management Academy projects. They have proved time and again they can work comfortably and professionally taking into account the needs of both the OEM and dealer operations to move the business forward.”
“I have had the opportunity to have known and worked with Tim Rushforth, CEO of RUSH4th Consulting over the past four years and the results have always been very positive. I know his company to uphold the highest standards in their operations and have demonstrated themselves as extremely reputable, ethical and highly experienced. I look forward to working with them in the future and encourage any reader of this reference to take advantage of their professionally delivered services for all your automotive business needs.”
“The operational standard of dealers in the Middle East was a major focus for us to improve the entire business. RUSH4th consulting did an amazing job to analyse each divisional section of the dealer network. AN action plan to implement change into the individual organisations was developed. The results were exceptional. The dealer network embraced the idea to improve and with the expertise of RUSH4th Consulting the wish became reality. The service was professional and expert.”
"RUSH4th Consulting's approach differs to others as it provides a 360 degree, holistic review of the whole business with specific focus on how the individual departments and business units interact with each other, which is often overlooked in consulting programmes. The incredibly detailed report, support, follow up and reviews ensured that consistent, continual improvement was achieved, over a number of successive years, as new benchmarks were set and exceeded."
