The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has recently opened three new offices - in Montreal, Seattle, and Bogotá. With the new office locations the global management consulting firm increases its footprint to 78 offices in 43 countries.
The decision to open three new offices follows a strong performance in 2012, when the firm generated $3.7 billion in worldwide revenue, up 9% over the previous year. At the same time, BCG increased its global consulting staff by 11% to 6,200, making it the second largest strategy consulting firm in the world, following rival McKinsey & Company (90 offices in more than 50 countries).
"BCG's strong, steady growth and our expanding global footprint are a real tribute to the talent of our people, especially in these uncertain times" says Rich Lesser, since early this year BCG’s global Chief Executive. "Our consultants have an exceptional ability to work with clients to generate great value".
BCG kantoor: Montreal
Montreal is BCG's second office in Canada, after the one in Toronto, which opened in 1993. "This office builds on our strong Canadian client base, coupled with an exciting market with many important companies across many sectors" Lesser says. "Montreal is also an important recruiting location for French-speaking Canada".
BCG kantoor: Seattle
Seattle is a natural extension of BCG's American West Coast netwerk, which is rooted in Los Angeles and San Francisco. "Seattle offers a strong platform for developing deeper relationships with a host of current and prospective clients throughout the Pacific Northwest. We're excited to have a more permanent presence in this large and growing market" Lesser says.
BCG kantoor: Bogotá
Bogotá is BCG's first office in Colombia, which has the third-largest economy in South America. "We have a great reputation in this dynamic region, thanks to our offices in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile," Lesser says. "We look forward to serving a range of new clients".
