Simon-Kucher & Partners has opened an office in Copenhagen, Denmark. The location will serve as a hub for its services to clients in the Nordic region. Omar Ahmad has been appointed as Managing Director of the Copenhagen base.
The Scandinavian market is not a new region for Simon-Kucher & Partners. Since 2000 the consulting firm has been supporting companies in the region. Based on the positive outlook – almost 30% of the Nordic companies have a positive growth outlook – the German-based advisory firm has now decided to open an office in the Danish capital. "Copenhagen is an ideal hub for the Nordic region, the business climate is excellent and the country’s open and international culture provides a solid basis for our future growth here,'' says Dr Klaus Hilleke, CEO of Simon-Kucher & Partners.
Omar Ahmad has been given the responsibility to build the local practice. Over the past years he has gained many years of experience supporting a wide range of companies in sectors such as life sciences, consumer products, manufacturing, utilities, telecommunications and financial services. "With a dedicated office we can now support our clients in the Nordic region even more effectively and develop with them," says Ahmad. ''Our propositions center around international strategy, marketing and pricing expertise,'' he adds.
Three more offices
Simon-Kucher’s expansion into Denmark was agreed by the partner team earlier this year and is part of its ambitious global growth strategy. Over the next twelve months, new offices will also be opened in Singapore, Sydney and Beijing.
