Munich: Roland Berger Strategy Consultants has opened a new office in Seoul, South Korea. The strategy consultancy now has 46 offices in 34 countries.
The firm has made a big investment in south-east Asia in the last twelve months, setting up a presence in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta as well as South Korea.
"South Korea's economy, its export strength, and connectivity to China and Japan, is of increasing importance to multinationals. There are well established sectors like Automotive or Electronics and South Korea's government-led Growth Strategy will add more," said Martin Tonko, the Partner leading the development effort.
Ken Mori, Chairman of the Korean office, said, "The new Seoul Office will tap into these fast-growing markets while at the same time closing a gap in our Asian coverage."
"Roland Berger has been practicing in Asia for more than twenty years now, and we have shown our strong commitment and great contribution to the region," commented Charles-Edouard Bouée, Member of Roland Berger's Global Executive Committee and President of Asia.
"By adding our new practice in South Korea, we will certainly be able to serve the firms' multinational clients in a wider range of industries, with more comprehensive services."
