A round of New Year promotions at Simon-Kucher & Parners has seen the total number of Partners at the firm rise to over 130. Rosalind Hunter and Gregory Harwood were both appointed as Partners in the London office.

Simon-Kucher & Partners (SKP) is on a rapid growth track on multiple fronts. In 2017, the firm broke its 1,000 employee barrier, while a year later the firm reached another major milestone, hitting a turnover of more than €250 million. Since that announcement, the management consultancy revealed that its meteoric rise was a long way from being complete, however.

Now, as the firm looks to continue its storied expansion, it has announced a raft of new Partners across its global operations. The 20 new Partners elected to their new roles in January 2020 bring the firm’s Partner-count to over 130 worldwide.

CEO Georg Tacke said of the appointments, “Consulting in sales, profit growth, and our core topic of pricing is still very much in demand. This is the reason we continue to grow globally – and this is also seen in our partnership. In 2020, we will appoint 20 new partners. The new partners clearly reflect our internationality.”

Two of the appointments come in SKP’s London wing. First, Gregory Harwood first joined the firm in 2012, and has since worked for SKP on both sides of the Atlantic. He was placed on rotation to North America between July 2014 and February 2015 and again between September 2015 and December 2015, based out of Boston. Now, he is a member of the firm’s global leadership team, with overall accountability for project delivery at SKP. Typically this involves him overseeing multiple teams of two or three consultants at any point in time, working across the functional topic areas of strategy, marketing, pricing and sales.

Rosalind Hunter meanwhile becomes a Partner having also spent the last seven years at SKP. Hunter joined as a Senior Director in 2012, focusing on travel, hospitality, restaurants and retail. This followed four years with Charles River Associates, where Hunter was latterly a Senior Associate, predominantly working on deals under review/investigation by the European Commission, in industry areas including FMCG, insurance, industrial plastics, European music wholesale and the UK energy market.
