International management and strategy consulting firm Marakon Associates has announced the opening of its first office in Continental Europe, in Zurich. The consultancy has established the new office to help existing clients - which include Global 1000 companies - further improve their performance and boost value growth, as well as to provide a platform for new business growth in the region.

Brian Burwell, Marakon Chief Executive Officer, said: "Over the years, we have built long-standing relationships with a number of major Continental European companies. Having a local presence in Zurich will enable us to serve those clients better and connect with new companies that could benefit from our expertise and capabilities, collaborative client-service model and focus on value."

Mike Baxter will lead the Zurich office as regional managing partner for Continental Europe. He will be joined by partner Alastair Campbell and principals Ralf Loehrl and Thomas Olsen.

Baxter explained that Marakon decided on Switzerland as the site for its new office because of the country's location at the heart of Europe, its proximity to other big consulting markets, the firm's already strong Swiss network and Zurich's concentration of large multinational companies. "This will be the first of a number of Continental offices in select locations over the next few years," he said.

Founded nearly 30 years ago, Marakon works primarily with large corporations across a broad range of industries to help them deliver superior and sustained performance. The firm's clients have been among the most consistently successful companies in their industries.

The new Zurich office is located on Seefeldstrasse and is staffed by a team of local hires and relocated consultants from Marakon's London office. Headcount is expected to grow significantly within a few years.

Marakon already has offices in London, New York, Singapore, Chicago and San Francisco.
