Axia Value Chain joins EY
São Paulo, 18 December 2012 – As companies look to enhance their supply chain capabilities in rapidly changing markets, EY announced today that Axia Value Chain, a leading management consulting firm, has joined EY.
"Axia differentiates EY in the Brazilian market and throughout the world by proposing a new model for business management and client support,” said Jorge Menegassi, CEO of EY. “It’s a new mindset that translates and simplifies management and the decision-making process by embracing a disruptive and unpredictable new age of business as part of the norm. We both seek to help accelerate the business performance of our clients.”
The deal results in an integration of several consulting services, focused on the transformation and protection of business, encompassing business strategy, market and risk management, supply chain, financial and fiscal optimization, human and organizational development, sustainability, innovation and product development, and information technology for decision-making.
Axia serves Brazilian companies with operations in the country and abroad, including China, Slovakia, the United States and Latin America. Axia saw 38% growth in FY12 and revenues of more than R$35 million (US$17 million).

This integrated, multinational approach is critical for giving clients 360 degree service."
