Talan’s new office in Madrid!

Interview with Cécile Monico, Managing Director

i Holà Cécile ! Could you introduce us to Talan España?

We are very pleased to announce the opening of Talan España. For now, the entity is managed from London and hosted in the French-Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Madrid.

In my team, Justin Paty is our Sales Manager, Roza Kawa is in charge of sourcing with Louise Faure (Talan Switzerland) and Penny Atkinson is in charge of the back office, supported by Melanie Jaillet, head of BO for Talan UK and España.

We are all highly motivated for this new challenge!

Why did you choose Madrid?

In Madrid, we already have a team of Agile coaches for Santander, which has been managed well from London. The office in Madrid was launched to meet a client’s needs: to keep on deploying the COBAM programme initiated in London for Santander. This mission is about the transformation of on-boarding corporate and financial institutions. This program involves 12 consultants in London, and 2 – soon to be 3 – in Madrid (Roll Out Project Manager, BA on-boarding consultant and PMO consultant).

What business expertises are already set up?

We already have several business expertises: Agile coaching, operational on-boarding, implementation of investment banking software and change management.

What are the ambitions of the Madrid office?

Our first ambition is to keep on expanding our presence in Santander. Then, we would like to deploy our expertise to other customers, like BBVA, with whom we are already on very good terms.
