We're delighted to announce that The Furniture Practice has acquired Bermondsey based furniture consultants Operandum.

Senior Partner, Martin Stocks, who co-founded Operandum, will join TFP as Sales Director. Nick Mann will join the team as Associate Director and Nick Lyons will head up operations in Scotland as TFP’s Head of Scotland.

TFP Chairman Ken Kelly explained: “There is real synergy in Operandum’s team joining TFP. The experience we both have as independent organisations delivering large, complex projects, our shared and unrelenting focus on client value, and the opportunity to combine Operandum’s proven and unique consultancy IP with TFP’s already formidable international buying power, is good news for clients and our global supply chain.”

Speaking of the acquisition, Martin Stocks said: “We are delighted to have completed the sale to TFP. Ken, Nick and I have known one another for many years and it is great to have the opportunity to bring our experience and knowledge back together at TFP. We are joining at an exciting time and look forward to playing our part in achieving TFP’s growth ambitions.

In addition to the senior management appointments, all of Operandum’s staff will be joining the TFP team as we continue to work with both national and international clients and project teams and significantly increase the depth and breadth of our procurement and consultancy offerings.
