Simon-Kucher & Partners, a global consultancy firm, has been recognized by Forbes as one of the World’s Best Management Consulting Firms 2022. Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey business leaders across multiple countries and launch its inaugural ranking of the most recommended firms. In total, Simon-Kucher was recognized as a leader in 12 sectors and functional areas. Additionally, Simon-Kucher was one of only five consultancies in the world to be awarded five stars for the Marketing, Brand & Pricing function.
“This recognition is tremendous as it represents the feedback from both our peers across the consulting industry, as well as from our clients that we work with each and every day,” said Mark Billige, co-CEO of Simon-Kucher. “Of course, this acknowledgment is a direct reflection of the dedication and commitment of our team of more than 1,900 people – it’s clear that their hard work, expertise, and exceptional service do not go unnoticed within the consulting industry and the sectors we serve. This award is a true testament to the exceptional talent of our global team.”
Simon-Kucher was recognized for the following sectors and services: Automotive, Banks, Insurances & Financial Institutions, Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals, Construction & Infrastructure, Consumer Goods & Retail, Data Analytics & Big Data, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Industrial Goods & Services, Internet, E-Commerce, Media & Entertainment, Marketing, Brand & Pricing, Sales & CRM, and Strategy.
This inclusion in the 2022 rankings comes on the heels of an impressive growth story for the global firm – Simon-Kucher announced that its 2021 annual revenue grew 22.5 percent year-over-year, while its global team has grown to more than 1,900 employees across 42 offices in 27 countries.
Statista has established several worldwide top lists in the field of management consultancies, and has conducted such analyses across the U.S., Germany, France, the U.K., Switzerland and Japan. To determine this list, Statista looked at the results of these country-wide top lists and created a top list of the World’s Best Management Consulting Firms. All six top lists are based on a similar methodology and take into account numerous recommendations from consultants and clients of consulting firms. The ranking is divided into 13 sectors—from aerospace and defense to financial institutions—and 14 functional areas—including strategy, sustainability and digital transformation. The 230 firms that received the most recommendations are ranked according to star ratings: five stars for “very frequently recommended,” four stars for “frequently recommended” and three stars for “recommended.”
