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 industrialised 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.”

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.”

“Expanding our African and US presence means we can offer our clients both global and local expertise, wherever they may be based” says Mark Billige, Board Member & Managing Partner UK. “We’re looking forward to further international expansion this year as well, with plans to open offices in Shanghai and Mexico.”
