Oliver Wyman Deepens Aviation and Aerospace Expertise with Acquisition of TeamSAI

Adding to its existing aviation and aerospace technical advisory expertise, international consulting firm Oliver Wyman has acquired TeamSAI, a US-based leader in the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) space.

Atlanta-based TeamSAI provides consulting and technical services to the global aviation and aerospace industry with a specialization in maintenance advisory, supply chain, certification and compliance, and technical support services.  Along with consulting, TeamSAI provides a full service, turnkey technical service offering known as M&E Solutions that supports various carriers under multi-year agreements. The company also produces the industry-leading Global Fleet & MRO Market Forecast Commentary report and related betterinsight™ data products by leveraging its proprietary database, a key intellectual asset.

The group will integrate into CAVOK, Oliver Wyman’s aviation technical services and consulting practice.  The combined entity creates a deep source of expertise with over 130 dedicated, full-time specialists who assist airlines, MRO providers, lessors and other aviation and aerospace stakeholders with mission-critical issues surrounding certification, safety, and performance and execution support for technical operations.  The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“This acquisition brings together two of the largest and most capable technical advisory firms in aviation and further demonstrates our joint commitment to being at the forefront of the industry,” says CAVOK’s General Manager Greg Colgan.

Chris Doan, TeamSAI’s CEO, adds, “Joining CAVOK and Oliver Wyman’s Transportation Practice allows us to scale up our consulting,  advisory and technical services in a differentiated way and offer our clients a slate of new and valuable offerings.”

“TeamSAI has a strong presence in the marketplace and complementary MRO expertise which will deepen and expand our offering set at CAVOK and further reinforce our position in the industry.  We are eager to share our strength and capability with the industry,” says Roger Lehman, Oliver Wyman’s Transportation Practice Leader.
