The strategy consultancy Simon-Kucher was founded in 1985 in Bonn, Germany, by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Hermann Simon, Dr. Eckhard Kucher, and Dr. Karl-Heinz Sebastian. Their vision: Use scientific methods that determine the optimal price to address real-life business challenges.
Topline strategies for price optimization
Now, over 30 years later, their vision has proven to be an extraordinary success. The former university spinoff has grown into a truly global company. Today, strategic pricing specialist Simon-Kucher is a major consulting firm (2018 revenue of $360 million), with around 1,300 employees in 25 countries and 38 offices worldwide. We are still headquartered in Germany, but continue our global expansion as the market leader in pricing at a fast pace.
We are growing considerably faster than the rest of the consulting market and will continue to do so. Unlike cost-cutting initiatives, our work in growing clients’ revenue and profit has no natural limits. As long as consumers, technologies, and business environments keep changing, companies will need our help with monetizing their products.
New product pricing strategies for monetizing innovation
Our core values include integrity, respect, team spirit, and entrepreneurship. The latter is especially important. All of our more than 100 Partners are not only owners of the company, they are also entrepreneurs in the truest sense of the word. They are responsible for the economic success and future development of our company.
However, we also encourage the entrepreneurial spirit among all of our associates. Each one of us aims to drive future growth, create better solutions for our clients, and use our potential to the fullest.
