Origins, values and "CYLAD Way"

Our challenge:
Make our customers confident, adapted, and armed to succeed

Independent Management and Strategy consulting firm, CYLAD Consulting advises
both major industrial enterprises and SMEs in their growth, transformation
and performance improvement.

Our origins

Founded in 2007, CYLAD was born out of
an entrepreneurial adventure

CYLAD developed into a firm that reflected its founders’ vision and remained faithful to the image they had of what consultancy should be: a model combining expertise, content focus, accuracy, respectfulness, transparency, tenacity, and above all, added value for customers.

The firm built its reputation on two pillars: an in-depth knowledge of the Aerospace & Defense sector and strong expertise in Project and Program management.

Born from complex industrial projects, the firm’s DNA is naturally structured to tackle projects using a cross-functional approach, breaking down silos and addressing many levels of complexity.

Today, these elements of the firm’s origins form the basis of CYLAD and are more than ever part of its identity.
