The office will be headed by Mr. Ash Alexander-Cooper OBE, a Director at McChrystal Group, with experience expanding the company’s offerings and building clients’ leadership teams. He retired from a British Defence career in 2016 after 22 years’ service, having spent 82 months deployed on operations in complex and hostile environments. Since joining McChrystal Group in 2016, he has led successful client engagements in North America, Europe, Asia, and South America, specialising in health, infrastructure, mining, and retail sectors.

“We are excited about the opportunity to grow our European footprint and strengthen our relationships across the globe. Our ‘team of teams’ approach has proved exceptionally successful with our clients globally, and we will continue our focus on superior service to our EMEA clients from our new base in London,” said General (Ret.) Stan McChrystal, who founded McChrystal Group in 2011.

“We are thrilled to formally expand our reach into Europe and beyond, at a time when the environment has rarely been more uncertain or complex,” said Mr. Alexander-Cooper. “With Brexit looming, there exists an even greater need for organisational adaptability and effective leadership. McChrystal Group has the necessary experience, tools, and an outstanding team to partner with and support clients during these challenging times,” he added.

McChrystal Group’s “team of teams” approach is outlined in the New York Times bestselling book Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World (2015; Portfolio/Penguin Random House) which was co-authored by General McChrystal and his former aide-de-camp and McChrystal Group co-founder, Chris Fussell. Mr. Fussell was commissioned as a U.S. Naval Officer in 1997, and spent the next 15 years on U.S. Navy SEAL teams, leading elements in combat zones around the world. The book has since been widely embraced in the business world as a roadmap for combining the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of a small team with the power and resources of a giant organisation.

Mr. Fussell has now published the sequel to Team of Teams, the Wall Street Journal bestseller One Mission: How Leaders Build a Team of Teams (2017; Macmillan). The sequel offers practical case studies and a tangible guide for organisations to tear down silos, improve collaboration, and avoid turf wars. Both books are available in the U.S., U.K., and Europe.

Mr. Fussell and Mr. Alexander-Cooper are both available for media interviews in London from 9 October to 13 October. To book either of them, please reach out to the media contacts below.
