About Roland Berger

From its humble beginnings as a one-man consulting firm, Roland Berger has grown forcefully and developed a sizable global footprint. The market leader in Germany and the only native European consultancy to boast an international presence, its 3,000 employees today work from 51 offices spanning 34 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North and South America. The company provides a diverse array of consulting services to many of the world’s largest corporations across a broad spread of industries, from automotive engineering, construction and chemicals to consumer goods, energy, environmental technology, financial services, machinery, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, public services, rail, telecommunications, travel and tourism.

One man, one vision

Roland Berger founded the firm in Munich in 1967, spreading into Italy and Brazil within a decade and passing a series of notable milestones on its journey to the present day. In 1980, it became the first European firm to be welcomed as a member of the U.S. Association of Consulting Management Engineers (ACME) – a remarkable achievement given that, for legal and ownership reasons (Deutsche Bank owned a majority stake in the company from 1988 to the late 1990s), Roland Berger did not gain a permanent foothold on the U.S. market until 1995.

The Asian market is a key pillar of Roland Berger’s international expansion. Roland Berger was an early mover into some of the Asian-Pacific countries, especially China. Since its first project in China in 1983, the firm’s story in the region has been one of growth. Opening offices in Beijing, Shanghai, and Tokyo in the early 1990s, the firm has adapted to local market conditions in each area, helping its clients to address business issues in strategy, operations, and corporate performance and to achieve sustainable performance. That pattern of growth has continued in recent years, both in Greater China - where the firm’s consulting headcount has been steadily expanding - and further into other Asian markets. Since 2010, the firm has opened ten new offices in the region. First up was Singapore in 2010, followed by Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Taipei, New Delhi, Seoul, Mumbai, Bangkok, Pune, Yangon and Ho Chi Minh City.

Well-researched and thought-provoking

Roland Berger is a prolific source of quality publications for both clients and the public at large. Besides the more than 100 books it has published, the firm’s award-winning Think:Act series combines insightful opinions with cutting-edge research and analysis on topics of relevance to business movers and shakers. Every year, the company also publishes numerous in-depth studies plus the PhD dissertations of its own professionals.
