About Us

Experience You Can Count On

Emva was established by our founding Director Steve Bellew, who has spent much of his career delivering transformational business change across a number of industries. Steve has a wealth of experience across the automotive, retail, telecommunications and advertising sectors and has a passion for delivering innovative omni-channel customer experiences as well as sustainable business change and improvement. 

We deliver lasting, effective change

To us, there is nothing better than working with our clients to turn an idea or a test into something that makes a tangible difference for a business and its customers. We specialise in working with organisations to help them understand exactly what it is that they want to deliver, how they can deliver it and what the risks and challenges will be along the way. And then we do what we do best, we roll our sleeves up and we get on with helping you make it happen. 

Of course, each challenge is different and there are many steps along the journey towards delivering sustainable change in any business. We pride ourselves on being able to help you and add value every step of the way

  • We go to great lengths to make sure that all requirements are known and understood
  • We create an environment that brings out the best in your own team, your partners and ensures everyone has the opportunity to make their expertise count
  • We are agile and understand the need to be flexible and open to change
  • We are humble and respectful but we'll also probe and challenge when the time is right!
  • Honestly and authenticity are two of our key values. You can rely on us to do exactly what we promise to deliver for you

It's all about the team...

The concept of 'team' is hugely important at emva. Individual success to us means very little and we believe that behind every successful business transformation lies a high performing team. Crucial to any successful team is the creation of an environment that allows the whole team to perform and to understand each other's roles. We have a proven track record in building high performance environments and keeping teams together in the most testing times.

Transforming and performing...

No matter how complicated your business initiative is, we understand that continuing to run your business as usual whilst going through transformation is critical. We have some great experience in delivering transformational change whilst helping companies continue to meet their short term results.
