Corporate Strategy Advisors


Strategy Advisors in the Aerospace & Defence Industry

Headquartered in London with satellite offices in Paris and Toulouse,Paragon European Partners works with industry clients and private equity investors active in the Aerospace & Defence (A&D) Industry. We bring extensive experience and professionalism to every assignment and customize our support to our clients' specific needs. We go beyond the traditional strategy consultants' scope of work by offering business development and customer management services, operational assistance for strategy implementation  as well as transaction support for M&A initiatives. 

All our consultants have extensive A&D industry experience (typically more than 20 years each) and are recognized experts in their respective domains (e.g. strategic transformation, M&A, supply chain, operations, international business development, etc.). As such we function as an "integrator of competencies".  

We’re on the pulse of the A&D industry, and have monitored its evolution since the 90's to inform our own approach and methodology —all to give our clients exceptional insights that will last for years to come.
