FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ALLIED SUPPORT SERVICES INTERNATIONAL GROUP INC (ASSIG) and SANDSTONE GROUP INC (Sandstone Group) are pleased to announce the creation of the ASSIG-Sandstone strategic alliance to better support each other’s clients in North America and Europe.
This new agreement will allow ASSIG to provide an enhanced level of service to European companies wishing to pursue business opportunities in North America, while at the same time it will provide Sandstone Group access to new international opportunities in the global marketplace.
ASSIG is an Ottawa-based consulting house which operates mainly out of Brussels where its team of experienced former senior defence and government officials provides high level strategic advice and counsel to a broad range of international defence and security clients in pursuit of business opportunities at NATO, within the European Union, the Middle East and Africa.
Sandstone Group is an executive advisory firm based in Canada focused on government relations, defence procurement, stakeholder management, communications, brand development and partnerships. Sandstone Group is based in Ottawa, Canada and supports clients at the federal, provincial and municipal levels of government.
The ASSIG and Sandstone Group’s strategic alliance provides a picture-perfect “one-stop” shop for companies seeking to expand their positions in current markets into a broader range of opportunities.
ASSIG President, Ray Sturgeon, is well known in Ottawa and Brussels and brings a rich background in defence and security issues as both a former Assistant Deputy Minister (Material) at the Department of National Defence (DND) and Managing Partner of CFN Consultants. Sandstone Group’s managing partners, Naresh Raghubeer and Kevin Bosch are acknowledged experts in government relations, Canadian procurement processes and specialize in political connectivity and access few can rival. They lead a team that includes specialists with deep knowledge and relationships with the Canadian government, as well as the Canadian Army, Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), and the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).
The leadership, partners and associate consultants of both ASSIG and Sandstone Group are extremely excited about what the future holds for their companies as well as for current and prospective clients.
