Cairneagle Associates are thrilled to have ended 2021 by winning the ‘Strategy Consultancy of the Year’ at the education industry’s annual awards ceremony.

The EducationInvestor Global Awards “celebrate excellence and innovation in the business of education and champions organisations that made an outstanding commitment and contribution to the industry each year”. It is aimed at professionals investing in, advising or operating companies in the education sector.


Partners Rupert Barclay and Arun Kanwar (pictured) accepted the award on behalf of Cairneagle at the ceremony held at the Royal Lancaster, London, on 30 November 2021.

This is the fourth year that Cairneagle has been awarded this prestigious honour by the industry.

Partner Jorge Amirola said, “At Cairneagle, we, the partners and every single member of our team, put all our passion and dedication into our work to deliver the best support and advice to our clients, and we enjoy it. It is enormous satisfaction to receive the recognition that this award represents. Big thank you to our team and friends who support us and to our clients who trust us.”

With an eye to the pandemic-related challenges of 2021, the recognition is especially meaningful this year and speaks to the value that the entire Cairneagle team deliver in creating innovative solutions to the complex challenges faced by our clients. We are delighted to have been recognised for our support and commitment to our clients and to the highest quality we endeavour to deliver on each project.

Arun said, “It is our mission and passion to support our clients with their most critical decisions in the education space, and so we are honoured to have been recognised in this way. A big thank you to our team for their incredible work and commitment and to our clients for choosing and trusting us.”

Cairneagle’s work is almost exclusively focused on the education sector, with each successive project reinforcing our depth of industry expertise, extensive professional network and sophisticated understanding of the nuanced sector challenges, which offers our clients to the very best chance of succeeding in the market.

The judges commented “No other consultancy firm comes close to the breadth of consulting work undertaken in UK education and the stats speak for themselves. Congratulations are in order to the Cairneagle team that punch massively above their weight to tower over the sector in their 20th year. And providing such innovative thought leadership. It’s something Cairneagle Associates can be rightfully proud of.”

Rupert said, “I am very proud of our team. This is a very contested award annually against the big four accountancy firms and the Premier League strategy houses. Thank you to the team, to all our clients and to all those in our extended network who have supported us.”
