Buchler Phillips (BP) and Business Links Consultancy (BLC) are delighted to announce a unique joint venture, offering clients a wide range of consulting and market access services for Europe, the Middle East and Asia via the strategic Mediterranean hub of Cyprus.

Together, Buchler Phillips and BLC will undertake business growth, performance improvement, revenue development, turnaround and restructuring projects in key markets beyond the UK and western Europe.

The joint venture will provide opportunities for existing clients of both firms to benefit from a wider range of business enhancing services, while creating a compelling offer for those new to Buchler Phillips and BLC.

BLC is led by its founding President and Managing Director, Christos Yiangou, a former diplomat of Cyprus’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs with extensive business experience in central and eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia, as well as in Buchler Phillips’s home market of the UK. As part of the joint venture, Christos will become a consultant to Buchler Phillips.

Commenting on the new partnership, David Buchler, Chairman and Founder of Buchler Phillips, said:

“I’m delighted to welcome Christos to the team. Our joint venture provides the critical balance between building powerful networks to generate dynamic commercial relationships, and a strategic approach to operational and financial matters. We believe this holistic approach will become a strong differentiator in helping our clients to thrive.”

Christos Yiangou added:

“Partnering with a firm of Buchler Phillips’s pedigree and technical skills will prove invaluable to those in the BLC network as it they seek to minimise risk in assessing new projects and collaborators.
