Simon-Kucher opens offices in Chicago and Cairo
The global strategy and marketing consultancy increases its international presence and expands its network to 36 offices in 24 countries on every continent.
Bonn – The opening of its new office in Cairo establishes the consultancy's presence on the African continent. “We’ll be one of the few international strategy consultancies in Egypt. The market offers enormous potential. Egypt is one of the two strongest industrialized nations in Africa. Strong economic growth and excellently trained local specialists make the market particularly attractive to us. Geographically speaking, Egypt is an ideal starting point to enter the African market,” says Dr. Georg Tacke, CEO of Simon-Kucher & Partners. “We’ll offer our services locally to all industries with an initial focus on financial services and the service industry.” Martin Janzen, Senior Director, and Sara Shenouda, Manager, will be overseeing the new Cairo location.
More offices opening in the US
The newly opened Chicago office joins Atlanta, Boston, Mountain View, New York, and San Francisco as Simon-Kucher’s sixth location in the US. “Work in recent years shows our expertise in pricing, marketing, and sales is enormously sought after in the US,” says Tacke. “Opening another office there is the next logical step to develop our presence in the world’s largest consulting market. The Chicago site fills some of our white spots on the US map and serves both the Chicago greater metropolitan area and the Midwest.” The Chicago office will be headed by Stephen Dunbar, Director.
Simon-Kucher & Partners will continue its international expansion, with plans to open additional offices in Shanghai and Mexico this year.
