Leading multi-disciplinary commercial consultancy, Allan Panthera, has been recognised as the Best Business Growth Consultancy Firm in the oil and gas industry, in Corporate Vision’s 2021 Oil and Gas Awards.

Showcasing the talent and dedication of firms and individuals who are thriving in the industry, nominees are judged on the following aspects:

  • client dedication
  • innovation
  • business growth
  • longevity
  • online reputation
  • customer feedback
  • business performance

Corporate Vision has a focused worldwide circulation of 155k business leaders and experts.

The publication, one of 13 brands under AI Global Media, said: “Just like all our awards, the Oil and Gas Awards are given purely on merit. To ensure this, our in-house research team carry out in-depth research into every single company with a nomination, to identify those who deserve recognition for their outstanding commitment to their work over the past year.”

With a track record of supporting companies in oil and gas become or continue to remain leaders in their field, the award comes as the firm continues its own continued growth, with 3 new employees joining earlier in the year being bolstered by another 2 to be announced next week. Further additions to capacity as well as exciting contract announcements are also due imminently.

CEO of Allan Panthera, Jamie Allan, said, “We’re very proud to be recognised for the work we’re doing in the oil and gas sector, supporting businesses to adapt and continue growing despite the challenges many face. The award highlights how we bring something different to the table compared to others, providing a range of commercial services and a track record of success based on the breadth and depth of our expertise. Simply put, we’ve been there and done it ourselves in the energy sector, we’ve got the t-shirt, so we know exactly how to support not only those operating in the oil and gas sector, but also those who are looking at diversifying and transitioning into other energy sectors.”

Legal and Property Industry Veteran Joins Allan Panthera in Key Role

Sandy Penny, with over 30 years industry experience across law and property firms, has become “Legal Principal” consultant.

With a wealth of experience and a broad network across Scotland, Sandy will provide strategic business development as well as carry out a range of consultancy services and projects under Allan Panthera’s legal division, which supports law firms with a suite of business growth and organisational services.

Having appeared as a residential property expert on the hit television show ‘Phil Spencer: Secret Agent’, Sandy also brings legal practice and estate agency business transformation expertise, following the successful guidance of one leading firm through recent periods of economic turmoil.

He has a passion for people management and is known for his calm and encouraging manner, creatively handling and executing complex staff projects as well as delivering a range of personnel training from junior to partner level.

Many law firms today are not keeping up with changes in client expectations from both a customer service perspective, as well as the firm’s strategy, messaging, and public and market perception on prominent issues such as diversity and sustainability.

Furthermore, there is a significant and untapped amount of potential business for law firms to secure through the better use and embracing of digital marketing, as well as employing improved sales training, processes and strategy within the organisations themselves.

Commenting on the appointment, Sandy said: “I was very aware of the common ground after the first meeting and I am delighted to be part of a progressive organisation well placed to assess and update where necessary existing firms’ development, marketing and training to protect their market share.”

Allan Panthera CEO, Jamie Allan, said, “Sandy’s appointment will undoubtedly strengthen our capacity and capabilities, bringing with him opportunities for us to increase our reach in the legal sector and deliver an enhanced suite of services. He has kept his finger on the pulse of the industry and the tremendous synergy we have now created together will provide law firms, estate agents, and other professional services firms with industry leading strategic services to transform their business growth potential and ensure their existing clients remain clients for many years to come.”

We are highlighting our complimentary sales and marketing health checks to the legal industry during July and August 2021.

It’s GO GO GO for Allan Panthera’s Strategic Partnership with Motors Formula Team


Allan Panthera, an international multi-disciplinary commercial consultancy, has become the Official Strategic Partner of MFT, international motorsport agency and racing team, as MFT continues its success in delivering multi-cultural talent across a variety of motorsport series.

MFT will benefit from a range of commercial services and strategic expertise which Allan Panthera has acquired from over a decade of global business success spanning a variety of industries.

The support will cover a variety of MFT’s current and future projects, including potential participation in the recently launched E1 Series and expansion of the business into North America and the Middle East, amongst other soon to be announced exciting ventures.

MFT has a roster of exciting drivers and talents under its belt, including collaboration with Formula E driver Pascal Wehrlein and Jahee Campbell-Brennan from Wavey Dynamics. Ludovic Pezé, founder of MFT, managed European Le Mans Series Champion Andrea Pizzitola, Monaco expert Fabrice Pantani, and F4 rising star Noah Andy. Additionally, Pezé has advised South African Volkswagen Motorsport driver Jonathan Mogotsi, who has notched up a pair of wins in the GTC SupaCup, as well as the South African rally driver Ismaeel Davids.

Jamie Allan, CEO, Allan Panthera, said:

“I’ve known Ludovic for a few years now and have closely followed his progress driving MFT forward. His tireless dedication to finding and promoting talent from those backgrounds which traditionally have minimal opportunity and support in motorsport, including black and female drivers, is a journey I’m proud to support and thrilled to be a part of. Now is the right time to bolster his efforts with our leading range of strategic services: with exciting projects on the horizon, MFT will step up a gear in terms of success and become the by-word for diversity in racing.

Ludovic Pezé, Managing Director, MFT, said:
“As Jamie said we have known each other for some time now. So, it was not complicated to start the conversations to start an agreement. I think MFT is doing the right thing by surrounding itself with the best people possible to secure its future but more importantly to achieve its goals both in terms of business performance and on the track.
There is no success without a good team”.
