Episode 52 – Rob Ferrone and Adam Blomerley – Quick Release

Rob Ferrone - Adam Blomerley - Quick Release - Climb In Consulting Podcast

In today’s episode I bring you not one but two guests as I speak to Rob Ferrone and Adam Blomerley of Quick Release.

Having started out as contractors, Rob joined forces with his co-founder, Adam Grant to launch Quick Release in 2003. In Rob’s own words they were ‘two Excel types who saw a gap in the market and wanted to create a fun company of like-minded data geeks’.

It was shortly after this that Adam Blomerley joined the business with his famous ‘5 year plan’ – something we discuss in today’s show.  This saw the start of the transformation of Quick Release, moving them from a provider of quality automotive Change Management resource to a fully-fledged Product Data Management Consultancy.

Over the following two decades Rob, Adam and Adam set about scaling firm to help them achieve their goal of ‘world domination’, growing from a team of four into a global consultancy of over 250 people.

Rob and Adam were fantastic guests and share some hugely candid insights into their journey and what it takes to grow a successful consulting firm.

In this conversation we go into detail on a whole host of topics including:

  • The early days of QR and how they were able to go from day rate contractors to building and scaling a successful consulting firm.
  • The lessons they’ve learnt over the last two decades building Quick Release and the key steps that helped them grow to the size they are today.
  • And Rob and Adam’s detailed advice for anyone looking to build a successful career in consulting.

I really enjoyed this conversation with Adam and Rob. One of the key values of Quick Release is that they are ‘Quite Refreshing’, that they dare to be different, bringing a new approach and a fresh perspective and they certainly delivered that in this conversation.
