Internationally experienced top managers from the retail technology and data management sector advise Cologne-based specialists on expansion
Bayard Consulting Group has established an advisory board to support the fast-growing consulting and software company in its strategic development and international expansion. Each of the advisory board's members has decades of experience at the helm of retail technology and consulting companies.
With the acquisition of the Product Content eXchange Platform SyncManager and the rapid growth of b-synced, Bayard Consulting Group's own Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) data pool, the consultancy now offers a respectable portfolio of its own solutions for master data management within and between companies. This complements the profound consulting and implementation support of the experts in the field of Product Information Management (PIM), which is appreciated by a very fast-growing number of clients from the manufacturing, retail and healthcare industry.
"I am very pleased that this team of top experts in retail technology is supporting us in the strategic direction of our company, which is growing rapidly also internationally. I have great respect for the wealth of experience that each member of our newly formed advisory board brings to the table," says Björn Bayard, CEO of Bayard Consulting Group.
The newly formed Advisory Board of Bayard Consulting Group members are:
Nihat Arkan is the Founder & CEO of Yaliyomo GmbH, a leading Blockchain-based Content Management Platform (CMP) provider.

Nihat Arkan has more than 30 years of international experience with a solid background in global expansion, market development, and proven track records guiding organizations through periods of accelerated growth. Over the last two decades, as a Global Executive, Nihat Arkan demonstrated quantifiable success in leading cross-functional teams to execute multiple mergers & acquisitions, innovative business improvement processes, and implemented cutting-edge technology, organizational structures, and financial planning that drove growth and efficiency.
