They succeeded Hermann Simon, who now serves as Chairman of the firm.

Partners and Entrepreneurship

The success of a consultancy depends on its partners – and this is where entrepreneurship comes into play. The strategy and marketing specialist Simon-Kucher is privately owned by its 66 partners. They are entrepreneurs in the truest sense. Together the partners are responsibility for the economic success and future development of our company – and of our clients. Whether business experts, scientists or engineers, our partners come from diverse educational backgrounds and have experience in various industries, institutions and other consultancies. Beyond this, all are experts in the fields of strategy, marketing, pricing and sales. At the same time, they have many years of experience and a deep understanding for the industries in which they work.
