Founded in 2010 by Neil Macdonald in the UK, Forecast has been on a journey to become a leading international analytics and modelling consultancy. Originally established as a specialist developer of best practice financial models, the ethos of the business to provide insight and clarity to drive client business performance remains core to Forecast today.
One of Forecast’s early engagements was a global supply chain optimisation model in Singapore where Greg Norman was the client. This project was the start of the working relationship that led to Neil and Greg launching the Australian business in 2016.
In 2016 Andy Caldbeck joined the Forecast team and rapidly progressed to a management role within the UK business. With a number of opportunities identified in North America the decision was made in late 2018 to launch the Canadian business with Andy at the helm.
Forecast has developed a reputation for delivering insightful commercial decision tools which has led to requests from clients to extend the service offering into data analytics, advisory, and skills development.
