Our Story | Our Mission

Be distinctive in what you do and source from those that are distinctive in what they do.

sample-image From our origins as a Strategic Sourcing consultancy we have developed into a trusted partner for critical business transformations. Glowfori was founded in Switzerland in 2012 with the mission to help large organisations become more agile in sourcing the solutions and services they need when they need them. Today we are supporting the world's most respected companies with their most critical business transformational changes.

sample-image Our fundimental belief is that the best connected companies will be the most successful. Those connections may be with promising new innovative companies, subject matter experts and executive peers from similar organisations in similar circumstances. For that reason Glowfori runs regular peer sharing events focused on the business challenges facing our clients. Join us at our next event here

In 2017 Glowfori opened offices in the UK from where we have served the UK's most well known companies and emerging challengers. We now operate from the TechHub in London where we can interact day-to-day with hundreds of start-ups as well as our multinational clients.

In 2018 we created a practice within Glowfori to critically assess these technologies as they apply to our client's business challenges. We are delighted to have developed platforms that are transforming the way businesses securely transact with their suppliers.

Our Success Stories

Client Requirement: Launch New Challenge Bank

A new UK Challenger Bank approached Glowfori with an objective to go-live in 6 months and be scaled to service over a million clients within 18 months. They would require over 25 Fintech providers contracted in weeks with terms that allowed commercial flexibility. Glowfori delivered and a new UK Challenger Bank is live.

Client Requirement: Stand-up A Ring-Fenced Bank

A major UK Bank committed to stand-up a new investment bank in order to comply with UK Ring-Fence legislation. Our team lead the program to deliver the commercial agreements that spanned ~2,000 services across 30 legal entities around the world.

Client Requirement: Deliver Fast, Compliant Cloud Sourcing

A global industrial group was diversifying into comsumer electronics in new global markets and needed an agile sourcing framework to allow them to engage new cloud providers quickly whilst managing key risks related to critical infrastructure security and IP protection. Glowfori developed their Cloud Assurance Framework which became the basis for all their Cloud services.

Client Requirement: Design And Implement Global Outsource Strategy

A major global bank committed to deploying a "Next Generation" of technology infrastructure and operating model. Glowfori was retained to advise on the IT outsource strategy, lead the commercial negotiations to off-board incumbent and on-board new suppliers and manage the stand-up of a new retained IT infrastructure organisation.
