Stuttgart/Hamburg. The globally active management consultancy firm
Porsche Consulting GmbH, Bietigheim-Bissingen, is strengthening its presence on the German home market: A branch in Hamburg is being added to the headquarters in Baden-Württemberg as of April. Around 40 employees will staff the office in Hamburg's Eppendorf district. The consulting firm is seeking additional consultants, primarily experienced engineers and economists, for its new branch in the North of Germany. “It has long been our big dream to have a firm foothold in the Hanseatic city. In the port city and economic metropolis of world renown, we will be even closer to existing and future clients,” said Eberhard Weiblen, President and CEO of Porsche Consulting GmbH.
In Northern Germany, the consultancy will advise mainly companies from the shipbuilding, aerospace, vehicle construction and engineering segments as well as from the media branch. But the focus is also on younger industries: “We will boost our involvement in the area of alternative energies and wind power,” explains Oliver Kayser, partner in Porsche Consulting and manager of the new Hamburg office.
The consulting firm was able to report yet another record turnover for the 2012 fiscal year: Sales rose by 19% to 83.5 million euro in comparison to the prior year. “We are confident we'll outperform this figure again in the ongoing 2013 fiscal year, because our order situation is very stable,” says Eberhard Weiblen. The staff offensive will be carried forward, too: Another 25 consultants are to be hired for the Bietigheim-Bissingen and Hamburg locations in the ongoing year.
