Consulting firm West Monroe Partners has recently opened a new office in Bentonville, Arkansas. The office, located in the Rain Tree Business Center, marks the firm’s 10th office in North America.
West Monroe Partners was founded in 2002 in Chicago by four former consultants of Arthur Andersen, including the Executive Chairman (Dean Fischer) and CEO (Kevin McCarty)*. In the past 12 years the management and technology consultancy has grown strongly, both in size (to approximately 350 employees) and reputation (e.g. listed #37 in the 2014 edition of the Vault Consulting 50 ranking). Although West Monroe Partners does not have an on-the-ground footprint in Europe, the firm covers Europe and the Middle East region through a strategic alliance with European-based BearingPoint.
To meet the increasing demand for its services in the Arkansas region, West Monroe Partners earlier this year decided to open an office in the state. Following an evaluation of potential locations the firm opted for establishing an office in Bentonville, a small city (~38,000 citizens) known predominantly for the fact that it houses the headquarters of Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer. To successfully launch its Bentonville operations, the consulting firm has opted to staff the office with experienced West Monroe leaders and consultants.
“Our goal is to establish teams that are able to serve global clients locally, and partner with those clients to transform their ambitious visions into realities,” says Kevin McCarty, West Monroe Partners’ CEO and co-founder. “We continuously look for opportunities to expand our reach and grow with purpose to build exceptional client experiences.”
