A new analysis of consulting firms active in France has identified the country’s top providers of strategic consultancy services to the manufacturing and industrials sector.
According to data sourced from French outlet Decideurs Magazine, which assesses the quality of services as well as company reputation among decision-makers and consultants, McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group, Roland Berger and French firm Emerton lead the lead the way in strategic consulting services to industrial executives. The industrial goods or manufacturing sector spans companies that rely heavily on industrial processes for turning raw materials into products or goods, including aerospace and defence, automotive, construction, chemicals, machinery, consumer goods and textile.
The market-leading position of McKinsey and BCG comes as no major surprise: they are among the largest players in France, mirroring their global grandeur, and consistently rank in the top echelon of similar local rankings. Roland Berger’s top rank builds for a large part on the firm’s growing Paris office and Francophone leadership, groomed by the firm’s CEO himself, Charles-Edouard Bouée, a French national who is now in his second term as CEO (and the first non-German to hold the role).
